Seraphin is a French citizen who was born in French Guiana. He's a member of the French National Basketball Team and played for Cholet Basket in France before transitioning to the NBA.
Unfortunately, he has experience dealing with national tragedies in France.
Last season as a member of the Wizards, Seraphin showed solidarity with his countrymen in the wake of the terrorist attack that left 12 dead at satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, also in Paris.
Evan Fournier, a French forward for the Magic, tweeted his shock as well.
Sometimes winning a basketball game means nothing... so so sad man... all these innocent people... #prayforparis

Fournier had a game-high 21 points in Orlando's win over Utah Friday, but basketball was the last thing on his mind after the game. The Magic will travel to Washington to face the Wizards on Saturday night.
