“Prayers going out” NBA players react to deadly Michigan State University shooting

The whole nation was baffled by the mass shooting incident at the Michigan State University campus last night, and the MSU graduates sent their thoughts, including NBA players.

A 43-year-old armed man wreaked havoc in the campus area last night, causing three casualties and five other wounded victims. The reason for such a heinous act has yet to be revealed, but the entire campus has been engulfed in darkness and deep grief.

The MSU graduates are sending their thoughts and prayers, including those of NBA legend Magic Johnson and many others.

What did NBA players say regarding the shooting incident?

As the incident had such a devastating impact on the country, the victims and their families have received heartfelt condolences and sympathies from people from all walks of life. It was especially heartbreaking news for all MSU graduates.

In a tweet, former NBA player Magic Johnson expressed his condolences, writing, “This is such a tragic situation & our hearts go out to the MSU community, all of Lansing and East Lansing! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾”

In another tweet, the five-time NBA champion wrote, “Cookie & I are devastated to hear about the news of a shooting on Michigan State’s campus. We are praying for the victims, their families, students, faculty, employees and administration.”

Johnson was a college basketball player for the Spartans, where he won several awards, including NCAA champion and most outstanding player in the 1979 Final Four. Since then, the MSU has retired the #33 jersey in his honor.

Another MSU Spartan, Jaren Jackson Jr., tweeted, “Pray for everyone in EL right now this is unfair.”

The 23-year-old power forward graduated from Michigan in 2018 with an average of 11.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks per game.

The 2018 NCCA champion, Eric Paschall, wrote, “Crazy what’s happening at MSU! Prayers up!”

The Apple Valley graduate point guard Tre Jones tweeted, “Prayers going out to everyone involved on Michigan st campus tonight. So sad things like this will continue until there is some change made.”
