Clippers make silent protest

6:26 pm on 28 April 2014

Members of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball side have staged a silent protest following reports that their team's owner had been secretly recorded making racist remarks.

The Clippers went through a pre-match routine for a Western Conference playoff match against the Golden State Warriors with their shirts inside-out to hide the team's logo.

The National Basketball Association is investigating a report on celebrity news website TMZ that Clippers 80 year old owner Donald Sterling made the remarks although Sterling maintains the recording doesn't reflect his views.

The players also wore black wristbands or armbands and all wore black socks with their normal jerseys.
