The Los Angeles Clippers staged a silent protest against their boss during Sunday’s playoff game against the Golden State Warriors. The squad dumped their shoot around gear at center court before tipoff, and wore their Clippers shirts inside out along with black armbands and black socks.

All-star Chris Paul was overheard telling teammates, “We’re going to be one. Everything we do, we do it together. Stay together. Play ball.”

Donald Sterling, the disgraced owner of the team was absent from the game, but his wife of 50 years, Rochelle Sterling, was present. Despite their efforts, the Clippers lost to the Warriors, 97-118.

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”

This isn’t the first time Jemele has used (what some deem as) controversial language while employed at ESPN.

It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan. Deserving or not, I still hate the Celtics.” That opinion garnered her a one-week suspension.

If she got one-week for referencing Hitler, there’s no telling what will happen now that she’s set her sights on Trump. We’re praying for you girl!
