New York Knicks Star Kevin Seraphin Pays Tribute to Paris Terror Victims With Flamboyant Haircut

New York Knicks Star Kevin Seraphin Pays Tribute to Paris Terror Victims With Flamboyant Haircut

Madison Square Garden held a minute’s silence and played the French national anthem in honour of at least 129 people who were killed Friday night, before Sunday’s NBA game between the New York Knicks and the New Orleans Pelicans.

Knicks Kevin Seraphin star was affected by the tragedy more than most with the French-Guiana forward considering the city his home.

Thankfully, Seraphin’s family were unaffected by the awful events, with most being out of town at the time.

But Seraphin has still been shocked by the attack and admitted he was overwhelmed by frantic text messages from friends and a Twitter timeline besieged with fans looking to know if he and his loved ones were OK.

The 25-year-old, who lived in Paris for four years before making his NBA breakthrough with the Washington Wizards, came up with a unique and flamboyant way to pay tribute to those who lost their lives, and to let his fans in France know they were in his thoughts…

An odd, but nice touch none the less. Well played, Kev.
