Weatherspoon stated. “New York City showed up. Just a sea of people and the excitement-you can’t help but to get excited about being a part of this celebration and this day [because] it’s huge.”

At last year’s festivities, the Liberty became the first professional sports franchise to have a float in the parade as the squad joined the likes of Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo. A two-game West Coast trip fell on the team’s horizon this time around though the team’s #ShowUp mantra was still heavily felt.
Hampton added. “Love is love and it is about showing up for everything and everyone. It’s about saying that we are all human beings and no one should discriminate against anyone for anything.”
