WNBA teams pay tribute to tragedies But some teams took a different approach than others

After last week’s mayhem tore the nation apart on multiple fronts, three WNBA teams decided to pay their respects to victims in different ways during the weekend.

First up were the Minnesota Lynx, who are closest to the mourning out of the three teams, with the death of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, rocking the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul community, never mind the rest of the country. The warm-up shirt each Lynx player wore on Saturday said, “Change starts with us. Justice and accountability,” while reading on the back, “Philando Castile. Alton Sterling. Black Lives Matter.” A Dallas police shield is just above the last phrase on the back of the shirt.

In New York, the Liberty took a similar tack on Sunday. Their shirts plainly read, “#BlackLivesMatter” and “#DallasFive.”

In Los Angeles, also on Sunday, the Staples Center decided to go full non-woke. Mind you, actress/singer Amber Riley (you might know her from the Fox show Glee) performed at this game, wearing a shirt that said “Selma Is Now.”

Welp.
