Despite owner Donald Sterling potentially being exposed as an idiotic racist over the weekend, the Los Angeles Clippers still had a game to play against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Rather than boycotting the game like they were reportedly considering, the team made an extremely loud statement with its choice in clothing during pregame warmups.
According to ESPN’s Arash Markazi, the Clippers players took the floor at Oracle Arena and gathered at center court to take off their Clippers warmup jackets and throw them in a pile. They also wore their warmup shirts inside out so that no team logo was displayed.
