Chris Haynes is joined by SiriusXM's Amin Elhassan to discuss the impending verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial. Recently, the NBA released a memo as the league prepares to potentially postpone multiple nights of games if Chauvin is acquitted. The NBA is primed to hit another flash-point as the lessons and protests from 2020 still seem meaningless in the face of continued police violence. (4:00)
