Warriors honor Dejan Milojevic with ceremony before game vs. Hawks

For the first time since the tragic passing of assistant coach Dejan Milojevic, the Golden State Warriors returned to the court for a game on Wednesday night in San Francisco. Prior to tipoff, the Warriors honored Milojevic with an emotional ceremony in front of his family and the Chase Center crowd.

As players from both the Warriors and the Atlanta Hawks, the entire Golden State team wore jerseys with Milojevic’s name striped across the back. The Warriors also left Milojevic’s usual seat open for the game. Along with playing a touching video, Steve Kerr spoke to the crowd at Chase Center. Instead of ending the ceremony with a moment of silence, Kerr called for a moment of celebration for Milojevic.
