Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines after seeing the damage done to San Antonio’s central business district by rioters follow Saturday night’s peaceful protest march in memory of George Floyd.
“I take great pride in saying that I live in San Antonio,” Walker said. “I am part of this community.”
Walker joined volunteers who flocked to downtown Sunday morning to assist with clean-up efforts after storefronts and buildings were damaged along Houston Street near Alamo Plaza and at the Shops at Rivercenter mall.

Wearing black shorts and a gray T-shirt, Walker walked for more than two hours around downtown, handing out water bottles to workers, law enforcement officers guarding the Alamo and others, including Spurs fans who applauded the second-year guard’s efforts.
“Appreciate you, man,” one man shouted as he passed Walker in a truck on Broadway. “You’re the next big thing. Love you, man.”
