Before yesterday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers removed any gear with the Clippers logo on it and turned their warm-ups inside out in a show of protest against Donald Sterling.
Tonight, the Miami Heat turned their warm-ups inside-out as well, in a show of support for the Clippers.

This was a cool thing for the Heat to do, showing the Clippers that everyone around the league stands with them. It’s especially important that LeBron James was involved, as he’s the most well-known and marketable star the league has. Any time there is a groundswell for change, it’s vital to have important people on your side–and no player’s more important than LeBron.
