In a show of solidarity with their fellow players, the Heat staged a silent protest against Clippers owner Donald Sterling before Game 4 of a first-round playoff series against the Bobcats at the Time Warner Cable Arena on Monday. Sterling was allegedly caught on tape making a series of racist remarks about African-Americans.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and company removed their warm-up jackets and placed them at midcourt before the game, revealing t-shirts that were turned inside out to hide the team logos. The Heat also wore black socks and headbands during the game.

Prior to Sunday’s game between the Nets and Raptors in Brooklyn, Michael K. Williams, who famously played Omar in the HBO television program “The Wire,” took the microphone to address the Barclays Center crowd.
“Ladies and gentlemen, there is no room in the NBA for Donald Sterling,” Williams said.
