Contractual obligations and the playoff season aren't preventing players from speaking their minds against Donald Sterling's outrageous comments. The Clippers symbolically protested against their owner by turning their warm-up shirts inside-out. The Blazers will show they stand beside Los Angeles in their game against the Rockets.
Portland is wearing black socks as another silent show of support. The gesture isn't unlike DeAndre Jordan's, who became the first Clippers player to protest by posting a black block on his Instagram.
“I just wanted to do something to support our brothers,” said LaMarcus Aldridge about his role in organizing the protest.
