Many people have wondered how the Los Angeles Clippers would respond to the racially insensitive comments reportedly made by team owner Donald Sterling.

LeBron James said Saturday that he would consider sitting out if he was on the team, and Shaquille O’Neal wondered if the Clippers might shut down.

Before Game 4 against the Warriors, the Clippers took the court as a team and made their statement.

The team then warmed up wearing generic red shirts with no logo.

Game 5 of the series will take place Tuesday in the Staples Center. Former Laker Mychal Thompson predicted Sunday that there may be thousands of empty seats as black fans may stay away from the team.
