The Los Angeles Clippers have been through a lot in the past week.
While in the midst of a grueling NBA playoff battle with the Golden State Warriors, the Clippers had to deal with racist remarks made by their owner, Donald Sterling, in an audio tape released last weekend.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver responded to Sterling’s remarks Tuesday by banning him for life and fining him $2.5 million, the maximum amount allowed under league bylaws.
Just moments after Silver’s announcement, the Clippers showed their solidarity and support of his decision by changing their official home page. The website, which redirects to nba.com/clippers/one, features an all-black background with the words “WE ARE ONE” written above the Clippers logo. Check out a screengrab of the home page below.
The Clippers return home to the Staples Center on Tuesday night for what should be a very interesting, emotional Western Conference quarterfinal game against the Warriors. The series is tied at two games apiece.
