Celtics Sport ‘We Are BG’ Shirts in Support of Brittney Griner

Brittney Griner has been detained in Russia for more than 100 days, and players, coaches and teams across the country continue to find ways to support the WNBA star, the latest being the Celtics. 

Boston wore black and orange “We Are BG” shirts ahead of Saturday’s practice, a day before Game 2 of the NBA Finals. On the back was a QR code, which led to a Change.org petition—“Secure Brittney Griner’s Swift and Safe Return to the U​.​S.”

“The shirts were super important because not only showing our support for our sister that’s wrongfully detained over in Russia, Brittney Griner,” said Celtics forward Grant Williams, per Mass Live. “We just wanted to show that togetherness and love that we have throughout not only the NBA but the WNBA. She’s been a vital part of the WNBA for years past, college and in the amount of impact she’s had on young female athletes.”
