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.
