NBA, Celtics Twitter react to US Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade

·3 min read

With the draft over and the start of the 2022 offseason’s free agency period still several days away, one might expect to find calm among fans and analysts of the Boston Celtics and wider NBA.

But even as players slip off on vacation ahead of Las Vegas Summer League, a ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States on access to abortion reverberated throughout the league’s followers on social media. Players, fans, and NBA content producers voiced their feelings about the ruling, which has already triggered significant changes to abortion access around the United States.

Let’s take a look at what was being said.

Some struggled to find the right words in their ire

Others called for structural change

Some took issue with the use of the ruling for political fundraising

While others made their feelings known directly

Still others made not-so subtle suggestions

While some called for support

Some focused on the logic or arguments used

And others looked to the future with trepidation

And some felt the need to apologize
