One of the earliest public responses by a Clippers player following racist comments allegedly made by team owner Donald Sterling didn't involve a single word.
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan posted a picture to his Instagram account Saturday morning that was simply a square black image. Jordan then tweeted the link to his more than 426,000 Twitter followers without adding any commentary.
The image seems to be similar to the blacked-out profile image that people used in support of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot to death in Florida by George Zimmerman in 2012. Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder but was acquitted last year in a case that highlighted charges of injustice in instances of white-on-black killings.
Jordan, in his sixth professional season, led the NBA with 15 rebounds a game during the regular season.
The Clippers resume their first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday afternoon at Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Clippers lead the best-of-seven series, 2-1.
