School administrators have mentioned that they will adjust this week if the situation changes.
Recall that the trial of policeman Derek Chauvin is highly publicized as he faces charges of 2nd degree murder.
The NBA ready for any eventuality
The outcome of the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, indicted in connection with the death of George Floyd during an intervention in May 2020, could have repercussions on the conduct of NBA activities this week.
According to what ESPN reported on Sunday, the Silver Tour is bracing for a scenario that would require it to postpone games. Major protests, mass arrests and initiatives taken by certain players or teams to support the Floyd family could thus materialize, which convinced the NBA to plan the cancellation of games for an evening or two.
Pleadings are expected to conclude on Monday, with Chauvin facing murder charges after resting his knee on Floyd, a black man, for more than nine minutes at the time of his arrest. His death sparked outrage on the planet, especially among league players.
More recently, the NBA had to postpone a duel between the Brooklyn Nets and the Minnesota Timberwolves last week after the death of Daunte Wright, who was shot by a policewoman – Kim Potter – during a check-up. truck in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
