The Los Angeles Clippers found a way to protest Donald Sterling’s racially charged comments before Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors.
The team reportedly held a meeting after audio of the team owner’s alleged racist comments were made public on Saturday, and discussed boycotting their upcoming playoff game. Although they eventually decided against that idea, the Clippers did take a stand in another way on Sunday afternoon.
Before Game 4, the players took the court as a team, took off their warm-ups and threw them down at center court.
The Clippers took off their shooting shirts and dumped them at center court. http://t.co/Nod5QWsWJy—

The team took their unity one step further, turning their shirts inside out so that they all warmed up in the same generic red T-shirts.
