Keep in mind, Chauvin only arrived for the struggle to get Floyd into the SUV and the aftermath. He wasn't involved in the initial interaction, or present for the denial of being on any drugs.
Unfortunately, he only showed up for the physical stuff.

I don't know if Floyd would have lasted 24 hours had he not had an encounter with Chauvin, but Floyd's stupidity is not on trial; Chauvin's actions are.

Let's be realistic.
If his knee was nowhere near his neck, and he died 24 hours later in the hospital, the riots would have ensued.

Speaking of Ben Shapiro, I watched his daily show today and he brought to my attention evidence presented in the courtroom that is not being reported anywhere.
Apparently, months after the altercation with Mr. Floyd, investigators went back to the SUV in which he was originally placed, and found partially chewed pills in the backseat.
The pills consisted of fentanyl and methamphetamine. The pills had Mr. Floyd's DNA on them.
How and when the pills came to be in the SUV is not yet known, but it does introduce reasonable doubt about what killed Mr. Floyd. If he ingested other pills of the same substance, that could explain the 3.5x lethal dose of fentanyl in his system.

A summary of the witness cross examination covering this point can be found here:
Also on the topic of fentanyl, Tobin insisted that fentanyl made people sleepy, even unconscious, when it killed via overdose, and Floyd had after all just been fighting police. In response Nelson brought up the pill fragments found in the squad car, the pills that were found to consist of fentanyl and meth, covered in Floyd’s DNA.
If Floyd had consumed the pills in the squad car immediately before being proned on the street, wouldn’t we expect it to take some five minutes before the drugs reached peak effect? Yes, answered Tobin. And continue their effect after that point? Yes.
This would coincide, of course, with that period of time in which Floyd was visibly slowing down and apparently losing consciousness.
(source: Chauvin Trial Day 9 Wrap-Up: Medical Experts Resuscitate Prosecution Case)

The defense only needs to show "reasonable doubt", and from the way things have gone the past 3 days, they're doing a good job by Mr. Chauvin.
And they haven't even formally started their defense yet. This has all been from cross examination of the prosecution's witnesses.

At the end of the day Floyd was a dumbass dead man walking. A drug addict with a several strikes against him who was going to be dead one way or the other. Was the cop over zealous? Perhaps. Guilty of murder? Doubtful. Will there be riots regardless of outcome? Absolutely.
