Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh came together with their children to honor the victims of Newtown, Connecticut who were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary on Friday (December 14). The three basketball stars joined the crowd in a moment of silence before Saturday’s game against the Washington ‘Wizards,’ showing deep sorrow for all of the violence that took place.

“Basketball, this is nothing. These games are nothing compared to when you have a tragedy like that,” said James after the game. “It sucks that sometimes you need a tragedy to put things back in perspective, to appreciate what you have. But it does that to people. It’s unfortunate that you have to have something like that to understand what’s really important and some things that aren’t important at all. Family is the No. 1 important thing in life.”

Dwyane Wade, a father of two and captain of the ‘Heat,’ also commented on the massacre saying, “The team is very close, and we all have kids. So everyone’s affected by it.” The Sandy Hook shooting claimed the lives of 26 adults and children. President Obama has asked all government facilities to hang the flag at half staff until further notice in honor of the victims.

  1. Three wonderful Fathers. Jackson, LJ, Bryce, Zion, Zaire and “Nephew” are beautiful boys!

    I know Chris must have been missing Trinity.

  2. All of the Heat players had their kids on the court not just these three BUT much respect to them for the gesture…

  3. I don’t want to be a debbie downer because what they did was beautiful, but they’re not the only ones with kids! I would have love to see a group photo. Anywho RIP to those beautiful babies and other victims of this senseless tragedy.

  4. This was a very nice thing for them to do, it’s important to recognize that it really could have been any of our kids. May God continue to comfort that entire community.

    Also, I think it’s interesting that all the drama of DWade’s court case w/ his ex and his relationship with Gabby U was splashed all over the blogs, but the fact that he stepped in and took in his nephew was mostly overlooked. I really commend him for not only fighting for his sons, despite all the bad press it brought him, but also for taking on the responsibility of a third child. I wish the good was reported as much as bad, especially in light of all the tragedies that are overtaking this world.

  5. Mr. Wade is parenting three boys, not two. Give him credit for also being a dad to; and having custody of his nephew.

  6. This is very nice for the Heat to have their kids on the court with them to honor the victims of Sandy Hook. I can’t even imagine what those parents are going thru, however, my thoughts and prayers are with them.
