The death of 46-year-old African American George Floyd on Tuesday at the hands of Minneapolis police has caught the attention of the entire nation amid the coronavirus pandemic.

It was a horrible moment caught on video as the poor guy begged and pleaded for an officer to take his knee and the weight of his body off his neck so he could breathe.

As it turns out, Floyd was a friend of retired NBA player Stephen Jackson.

The NBA champ took to social media to vent his frustrations and mourn the death of his friend.

“This is what I gotta wake up to, huh?” Jackson said on a video he posted on Instagram, via Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports Bay Area. “This is what I gotta wake up to. Floyd was my brother, man. We called each other ‘Twin,’ bruh. Everybody know me and Floyd called each other ‘Twin.’ My brother was only out there in Minnesota, he was changing his life, he went to Minnesota, he was driving trucks. I just sent him two, three boxes of clothes. My boy was doing what he was supposed to do, man, and y’all go kill my brother, man. I’m on my way to Minnesota, man. Whatever I can do, can’t let this ride, dog. Y’all not going to be mad until it hits you front door. Bull—t.”

Jackson said he and Floyd grew up together in the Houston area, and even though they weren’t blood related, their uncanny resemblance coined them the term “twin.”
