Today’s NBA players, just like you and me, will never forget Sept. 11, 2001.
It was at once one of the most tragic and most heroic moments of our nation’s history, and I mostly remember it as an all to brief time when the people of this nation put aside the petty differences of race or political party to rally to each other’s aid. To stand as one.
NBA players have taken to twitter to commemorate the anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington D.C. and a field in Pennsylvania. Here are just some of the highlights.
9-11. All I could remember was seeing smoke coming up Suitland Parkway from the pentagon and praying that my Mom was ok at work.—

Remembering all those involved in the 9/11 attacks and thanking all who helped. A tragic time that made us all come a little bit closer.—
