Mavericks considering gesture of support for Clippers players

Posted: Updated:
Nothing is finalized, but members of the Dallas Mavericks are considering some type of gesture to show solidarity with Los Angeles Clippers players.

The Clippers were thrust into the national spotlight over the weekend when tapes were released that allegedly have owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks.

Members of the Clippers wore their warm-ups inside out to hide the team logo during pregame and on the bench during Sunday’s playoff game in Oakland vs Golden State.

Now, Dallas players are trying to figure out what kind of gesture they can make to show their support of the Clippers players.

Shawn Marion said the players are trying to find black socks for everyone to wear, but they hadn’t found enough as of Monday morning.

“We’re going to figure out something to do, if we can’t get hold of socks for everybody to wear,” Marion said to reporters during Monday morning shoot around at the American Airlines Center.

Samuel Dalembert, who is from Haiti, said he was surprised these comments could still happen in 2014.

"We're gonna watch what's gonna happen...for me personally, knowing where I come from, it's hurting, it's hurting deeply," Dalembert said. "Hurts, you know, but people are people and we just have to pray for them."

Dallas plays San Antonio at 8:30 p.m. on Monday in Game 4 of their first round playoff series. Dallas leads the series 2-1.

The NBA has called a Tuesday press conference to discuss its investigation into Sterling.
