His focus, it appears, is entirely on achieving justice for Breonna Taylor.
Harris was asked Monday about social justice shirts that the players association and Russell Westbrook’s clothing company are making for players to wear inside the bubble, but completely ignored the question.
“Nothing against the T-shirts, but we want to make sure that [Kentucky attorney general] Daniel Cameron will arrest the cops and officers involved with Breonna Taylor’s death,” Harris said. “That’s all I’ve got to say.
“That’s going to be my answer for every question. For Daniel Cameron to step up and to do what’s right. That’s the only message that I’ve got today.”

“It’s great to be back playing basketball,” Grant said last week. “For me personally, and I think a lot of the players, I think it’s imperative that we focus on what’s really important in the world.
“One thing, for me, is Breonna Taylor’s killers are still roaming free. I think I just want to focus on that with these interviews.”
Taylor, a Louisville-area EMT, was shot multiple times and killed in her bed around midnight on March 13 after police executed a no-knock search warrant at her apartment during a drug investigation. Police accounts of the incident, according to The New York Times, have been disputed ever since.
Taylor’s death, along with George Floyd’s in Minneapolis police custody in May, has sparked widespread outrage, protests and social justice movements across the country.
Harris was averaging 19.4 points and 6.8 rebounds for the 76ers this season when play was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Harris, who is in his ninth season in the league, is in the first year of a five-year, $180 million deal with the organization.
The 28-year-old received plenty of praise for his move on Monday, too, including from LeBron James.

Brett Hankison, Jon Mattingly, Myles Cosgrove need to be fired, arrested, and charged for the murder of Breonna Taylor.

The NBA has implemented several plans to help its players speak out during the season restart at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Florida — including painting “Black Lives Matter” on the courts, allowing players to wear a social justice message on their jerseys and more.
Harris’ move to speak only about Taylor on Monday appears to be a rapidly growing trend across the league, one that isn’t likely to stop anytime soon.
