Can’t we all just get along?

A nice vignette from the Grizzlies-Kings game (via):

Grizzlies center Hamed Haddadi , the first NBA player from Iran, and Omri Casspi, the first Israeli player in the league, met at midcourt and shook hands before the game.

Haddadi had never faced an Israeli player on the court because teams from Iran, which does not recognize the Jewish nation, are not allowed to play Israel.

Haddadi, who didn’t play even though Casspi did, has said none of that bothers him.

“It’s just a sport,” Haddadi said.

Please do be so kind as to share this post.
