Last night, we saw the players on the Portland Trail Blazers show their support for the Clippers players by rocking black socks. And tonight, prior to their Game 4 contest against the Charlotte Bobcats, the Miami Heat followed the Clippers' lead by dropping their shooting shirts at midcourt and turning their warmups inside out.

If you're wondering why the Heat would even be doing something like this, Ethan J. Skolnick of Bleacher Report sums it up nicely.
Don't know how this gesture will register. Just know that the Heat players feel -- b/c of their visibility -- that they need to take stands.— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) April 28, 2014
