Adam Silver Respects Players’ Views, Prefers They Abide By Dress Code

LeBron James

The preponderance of players wearing “I Can’t Breathe” shirts during pre-game warmups in lieu of league-mandated apparel puts Adam Silver in a tough position. He can’t in good conscience fine Derrick Rose, LeBron James, and company, but he also can’t sit idly by and watch the dress code be flaunted. The commissioner effectively toed those lines by telling Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowksi that while he respects the players’ right to voice their views, he’d prefer if they wore standard apparel.

Then, he dropped 17 points in the third quarter to keep pace when Derrick Rose put up 10 points of his own. But before he did any of those things, he sent back a Rose drive in the opening session.

Derrick Rose

The Chicago Bulls ultimately lost to the Dallas Mavericks in double overtime by a score of 132-129. But that’s mostly just semantics considering the heroics it took from Derrick Rose for the game to reach a second extra session at all.
