In an apparent act of protest against racist remarks attributed to team owner Donald Sterling, Los Angeles Clippers players warmed up for their playoff game on Sunday afternoon against the Golden State Warriors with their T-shirts inside out to obscure any team logo.
Shortly after the team took the floor together at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, the players all stripped off their long-sleeve shooting shirts at midcourt.

Those shirts were left in a pile as the team began its warm-up routine before Game 4 of their opening-round playoff series.
When the game tipped off, the Clippers’ blue road uniforms were worn traditionally, complying with NBA rules. Players did seem to all be wearing black wristbands or armbands with their uniforms.
