Before tonight's game against the Bobcats, the Miami Heat joined in L.A.'s silent protest by removing their shooting shirts and leaving them at mid court as a sign of player-wide solidarity against racism. No one told the equipment guy, though, so he immediately snapped into action and gathered up all the shirts.

The Heat were also wearing their warm-ups inside out, but wanted the added message of the shirts left on center court during the pre-game shootaround, so they told the guy to put the shirts back on the ground. So he had to pick them up again later, I guess.
