'It hit home': Celtics coach, former Spur reflects on Uvalde shooting

[adinserter block=”2″]

Udoka says the shooting is not a “wake up call” because the kind of violence continues to happen, unfettered. He asked “What’s next?” He mentioned Columbine, Sandy Hook, and said “there has not been a ton of change” since then. 

“Me being in that community, in San Antonio, it kind of hit home for me,” Udoka told reporters. 

Udoka’s comments come after Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who also played for the Spurs and remains close friends with Gregg Popovich, made an impassioned plea for change hours after the shooting occurred.  

“When are we going to do something?” he said, slapping the press conference table. “I’m so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there. I’m sorry — I’m tired of the moments of silence.”

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Brooks Raley also commented on the shooting. Raley is from Uvalde and told reporters he attended Robb Elementary, where the children and educators were killed. 

“I did go to that school. I walked those halls, so I can imagine what they experience each day, and I’m feeling for that community,” Raley said, according to ESPN. “It’s small and a close-knit community, so it’s obviously tough. I don’t know if there’s anything I can do. It’s going to take time.”
