Heat players replicate Clippers protest of Donald Sterling before Game 4 against Bobcats (VIDEO)

Miami Heat v Charlotte Bobcats - Game Four

Miami Heat v Charlotte Bobcats - Game Four

Streeter Lecka

In case you haven’t been paying attention and didn’t yet realize just how far-reaching the remarks attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling have become, the defending champion Miami Heat reminded us before their Game 4 matchup against the Bobcats in Charlotte.

Just as the Clippers did on Sunday, Miami’s players shed their warmup jackets at midcourt, and went through warmups with their shirts turned inside out, devoid of any NBA logo whatsoever.

It was a nice show of solidarity from the Heat, but it was also a reminder that this story goes beyond a single franchise, and is far bigger than the game of basketball.

The NBA is set to address the situation formally in a press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
