Jan 28, 2023

The NBA world reacted Friday to the release of videos that showed the January 7th traffic stop that preceded the death of Tyre Nichols, who spent three days in the hospital before succumbing to his injuries.

In the videos, police allegedly use pepper spray on Nichols while punching and kicking the 29-year-old, leaving him bloodied and dazed.

The brutal encounter led to the firing of five Memphis police officers who now face charges, including second-degree murder.
