L.A. Clippers make unified on-court protest against team owner's racist remarks.

You've probably heard by now of the vile racist remarks L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling left on the voicemail of his mistress, V.Stiviano (technically, I should still be saying "allegedly" left on his mistress' voicemail, but he has a long history of being a racist douche and keeping mistresses). If you haven't, you can catch up on the biggest story of the week here. Naturally, his players wanted to protest.
Fans of the Golden State Warriors continued to protest fashion by wearing bright yellow.
Rather than stage a full-scale walkout (which would likely have resulted in fines and shifted the attention away from Sterling), the L.A. Clippers removed their shooting shirts and wore their warmup t-shirts inside out so that they weren't wearing anything that said "Clippers" on it. They still lost to the Golden State Warriors, although they probably got a kick out of the Warriors fans who showed up to the game with signs trolling Sterling pretty hard.
