Los Angeles: Los Angeles Clippers players staged a silent protest and wore black apparel during an NBA playoff game Sunday in the wake of racist remarks attributed to team owner Donald Sterling.

Sterling, the NBA's longest-tenured team owner after buying the Clippers in 1981, did not attend the game against Golden State Warriors, but comments allegedly made by the 80-year-old billionaire cast a long shadow over the contest.

Players gathered at center court in Oakland before a pre-game warmup, removed their team warm-up shirts and left them on the floor, working out wearing shirts that were inside out and did not display the Clippers name or logo.
