Pistons coach Dwane Casey says nothing seems to be changing as injustices mount

Detroit Pistons coach Dwane Casey lived through desegregation in Kentucky and said he knows what it has felt like to go into a new school unwanted and unwelcomed.

He's seen the deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia and Breonna Taylor in Kentucky.

On Saturday, Casey, who is black, said he wonders if anything has changed from when he was an 8-year-old boy walking into a white school, feeling helpless and like he was unseen, not heard and not understood.

"Fifty-four years later, my son is now eight years old and I look at the world he is growing up in and wonder, how much has really changed?
