No reason to play this game. I'm sure both teams will appreciate the rest.

The terrorists have won. Slowly but surely changing everything in our daily lives. A meaningless basketball game should be played and nothing will change my opinion

Not disputing the call but I'm very surprised by this.

I remember on September 13th 2001 WWF held a special live broadcast of SmackDown in Houston dedicated to the victims of 9/11. Sure, Houston is far from NYC, but 9/11 was a disaster on a much larger scale than today's events.

I think adding a moment of silence / tribute would have provided a more fitting solution. As others have mentioned, this could make the US seem fragile to enemies.

If the game were scheduled for Indy Im sure thed play. Staging an nba game requires a lot of arena staff and personnel. You dont know how many employees have been immediately affected by this. Heck, even if you let affected employees call out, then you start a whole new risk of compromised safety at the facility.

trolling? more like a perverted psychopath who thinks it's humorous to try to get a rise out of strangers on a basketball message board due to a tragedy where innocent people were killed for no reason.

plus Boston's going to pretty much be on lockdown for awhile, no point in using law enforcement officers to protect a freakin basketball game

Yep, I'm sure it has something to do with that. All the security needed for the game is probably on call, interviewing witnesses, following leads, etc. since most are not paid by the teams for security.

But remember, the NBA cancelled the game, not the Celtics organization.
