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).
