Just like you and me, NBA players were horrified and sickened by what happened in Boston Monday when bombs were planted and went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The blasts left three dead (one an 8-year-old child) and more than 100 injured.
A lot of NBA players took to twitter to express their concern and sympathy. Here is a sampling of those responses (there were many, many more).
- Jimmy Butler even plans to play defense in the All-Star Game 7
- Damian Lillard “disappointed,” “disrespected” not to make All-Star team 41
- DeMarcus Cousins replaces Kobe Bryant in All-Star game 10
- Tyson Chandler, better than ever, thinking legacy 8
- Report: Magic close to firing Jacque Vaughn 15
- Three Things We Learned in NBA Thursday: The All-Star Rosters need to be expanded 29
- One day after having surgery, Kobe Bryant came to see Pau Gasol 7
- Report: Dwight Howard could miss “extended time” with knee injury 5
