New York Knicks Honor Paris with French National Anthem


By JOHN DORN

The tragic events in Paris have rattled all aspects of life -- even the American sports world. New York Knicks center Kevin Seraphin is one of the 13 active French players in the NBA, and the 25-year-old honored the France capital in a major way.

Before Sunday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans -- who also employ a French-born player, Alexis Ajinca -- Seraphin debuted a new haircut dedicated to the victims.



According to MSG Network (h/t Complex), the center says he will rock the new style until it grows out "to show his love and support." He went a step further by inscribing "#PrayForParis" on his sneakers.

Fellow Knicks center Lou Amundson also honored the country by styling his long hair into a French braid.



Before the game, the Madison Square Garden court was lit up in colors of the French flag as the nation's anthem played.



Seraphin enjoyed his best performance of the season, putting up 12 points.



After the game, he dedicated the win to victims.



Credit to MSG and the Knicks organization for taking the time to honor those affected by this tragedy.
