Both sets of players from the Milwaukee Bucks and the Clippers wore the T-shirts prior to their National Basketball Association game at the Staples Centre, which the home side won 128-126 in overtime on Saturday. According to the LA Times, the Lakers are also planning to wear the same T-shirts in their upcoming game against the Atlanta Hawks to honour the Thousand Oaks shooting victims.
