NBA’s ‘We Are One’ T-shirts
The recent Donald Sterling debacle during playoffs galvanized players and fans from all walks of life against racism. To show its solidarity with them, the league has started marketing its “We Are One” T-shirt to mark the firing of the former LA Clippers owner whose alleged racist remarks caused an uproar across the nation. Featuring the slogan and the Clippers’ team logo, all proceeds are heading straight to benefit anti-discrimination and tolerance organizations.
The Brooklyn Nets’ strange roster T-shirt
This shirt nets the honour of being one of the strangest made to mark a playoffs effort. The Brooklyn Nets started selling tees illustrated with their entire roster ahead of Game 4 against Miami, all with bafflingly-drawn heads. For one, as Deadspin notes, Andrei Kirilenko looks like Martha Stewart, Paul Pierce looks like Harry Potter villain Voldemort and Kevin Garnett appears to be Tyson Beckford’s long-lost twin.
The Clippers’ inside-out T-shirts
These T-shirts (complete with a slight modification) are worth a thousand words, and then some. While technically not for sale, these shirts worn by members of the LA Clippers made a political statement when they decided to wear them inside-out to protest their boss’ alleged racist remarks. The move did not go unnoticed, as it sparked massive discussion about the team’s politics. Chris Paul later told a commentator that the intentional wardrobe malfunction was an alternative to walking out on the game altogether.
