Taylor was killed at her home in Louisville, Kentucky when plainclothes police used the “no knock on door” order to conduct a narcotics investigation. When plainclothes police broke into her house.
The police fired eight shots at Taylor on her bed.
No drugs were found and no persons were charged with crimes
Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma spoke to reporters in Orlando and through Zoom for more than six minutes later that night, mainly answering questions about COVID and the restart, but then Kurz said on Twitter that reporters need to ask more questions related to social justice.
Media and players: we go hand in hand. We have a platform, but please help! Yes, we know that your job is to ask us questions about basketball. But if you all believe that all people are equal, then here are some questions about social injustice. We are all in the same boat

Kurz’s teammate Alex Caruso also screamed because the reporter asked multiple questions about Caruso’s family affairs.
“Apart from my sister’s wedding question, I will answer any request you have of basketball today,’We need Breonna Taylor’s justice,” Caruso said.
Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell also used his time to talk about Taylor.
“We need Breonna Taylor’s justice, we all know that she was killed in her own home; you know if there is a place where you can’t feel safe in your home, that’s not right.” Mitchell said.
In addition to health concerns, many players are also worried that rematching will shift their attention from Social justice Question, but it looks like they intend to continue the conversation.
