MANILA — Nanlulumong nagpahayag si Warriors coach Steve Kerr tungkol sa naganap na insidente ng pamamaril sa Texas school bago ang Game 4 ng Western Conference finals sa Dallas.
Inilabas ng NBA ang sumusunod na pahayag noong Martes bilang tugon sa malagim na shooting incident sa isang elementarya sa Texas na ikinamatay ng hindi bababa sa 18 bata at ikinasugat ng iba.
“The NBA family is devasted by the horrific shooting that took place today in Uvalde, Texas. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to the victims’ family and friends, and the entire Robb Elementary School and Uvalde community” ayon sa statement ng NBA.

Ani Kerr: “I’m fed up. I’ve had enough. We’re going to play the game tonight. But I want every person here, every person listening to this, to think about your own child or grandchild, mother or father, sister, brother. How would you feel if this happened to you today?”
