Cleveland Cavaliers stars Lebron James and Kyrie Irving recently donned the now-familiar "I Can't Breathe" shirt in warm-ups.
But it was a different shirt, worn by another Cleveland athlete, that has some of the city's police upset.
Prior to Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns' wide receiver Andrew Hawkins walked onto the field with a shirt that read, "Justice for Tamir Rice and John Crawford" on the front and "The Real Battle of Ohio" on the back — an apparent gesture protesting their deaths.
