“I am safe here” and “I am fine,” the 49-year-old eight-time All-Star posted on his Facebook page along with photos. His charitable foundation also posted a message on Facebook, saying that the former NBA star “was thankfully unharmed.”

Multiple explosions rocked the Zaventem international airport and the Brussels subway system, killing at least 31 people.
