Letters: More like a bad dream for Clippers and Rockets

The lack of control demonstrated by the Clippers and Rockets, these highly paid, supposedly professional athletes, was appalling. First of all, they all were wearing "I Have A Dream" T-Shirts to honor Dr. King's legacy. Yet they proceeded to turn the contest into a Crips vs. Bloods-type confrontation.

I understand every athlete is not on a conscious level as let's say, Ali, Curt Flood, Bill Russell, or even Colin Kaepernick. Still let's be mindful that due to your notoriety, you as African American males are prone to scrutiny from the public's eye. So with that being said, let's demonstrate an elevated level of self-respect and squash the pettiness.
