Celtics Honor Maine Mass Shooting Victims
The Boston Celtics honored the victims of a recent mass shooting in Lewiston, Maine, during their home opener.
In a touching gesture, the players wore the warmup shirts of their NBA G League affiliate, the Maine Celtics.
Additionally, they displayed a "Maine" band on their jerseys above the Vistaprint logo patch to show support for the state.
A moment of silence was observed by fans in the arena as a mark of respect and solidarity.
