Photos: Orlando Magic celebrate NBA Green Week

Orlando kicked off the annual event by planting a garden in Parramore, just a short distance from the Amway Center.

To mark NBA Green Week, Tobias Harris joined Orlando Magic community ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw; Stuff; the Magic Dancers; and volunteers from OUC and Owens Facility Services on Tuesday to help plant a garden at Nap Ford Community School in the City Beautiful's Parramore district, just a few short blocks from Amway Center. In addition to planting the garden and educating the students about the importance of going green, the Magic also donated some plants and gardening tools to the school.

NBA Green Week ran from April 3rd-10th. Throughout the week, players throughout the league sported 100-percent organic cotton shooting shirts adorned with the NBA Green Week logo, as well as green wristbands and headbands. Magic guard E'Twaun Moore might not want to give up his wristband, given that he scored 17 points on 6-of-6 shooting while wearing it Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Magic also celebrated NBA Green Week by having their coaches and broadcasters support lapel pins to promote the cause. In addition, the team lit up the Amway Center's signature spire green for Wednesday's game.
