Warriors at Clippers: Protesters rally outside of Staples Center (Photos)


On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Clippers hosted the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference series. The wounds opened from the racist comments from Clippers owner Donald Sterling were still fresh despite the lifetime ban and $2.5 million fine handed down by NBA commissioner Adam Silver, and protesters showed up to let their displeasure with the owner be heard loud and clear.

From signs that read “No Bigotry Allowed” to simple signs saying behavior like Sterling’s must go, it was obvious that there are fans who want Sterling to sell the team sooner rather than later.

You can see some of the signs of protest that were outside of the Staples Center on Tuesday night below:
