Rose Makes a Strong Statement With Warmup Gear

Before Saturday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, Derrick Rose told a friend to make sure he was there early and to get a picture of his warm-up shirt.

A video recording of the arrest shows Garner gasping and saying, “I can’t breathe,” during the fatal encounter. Those three words gained currency Wednesday when a Staten Island grand jury decided against indicting the officer responsible.

“I can’t breathe” has joined “Hands up, don’t shoot,” the protest mantra from the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, as phrases that have entered our national lexicon. Chicago was among the cities where protesters gathered last week in reaction. Several St. Louis Rams players made their statement by coming onto the field last Sunday while making the “hands up” gesture.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
