The Miami Heat showed solidarity with Los Angeles Clippers players over the Donald Sterling controversy.
Before their Monday night playoff game against the Charlotte Bobcats, the Heat huddled at center court and removed their white shooting T-shirts in a pile. The Heat then proceeded to go through their pregame routine with their warmups turned inside out, hiding the team’s logo, just like the Clippers did Sunday in Oakland.

It was a silent protest in response to the purported racist comments made by the Clippers owner.
The day after Sterling’s alleged comments were made public, Heat star LeBron James spoke out on the matter, saying “there’s no room for Donald Sterling in our league.”
