08:58 AM ET 03.24 | Amar'e Stoudemire wore a hoodie for a portion of pre-game warmups as the Knicks prepared to take on the Raptors Friday night to show his support for Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black Orlando teen who was gunned down Feb. 26. Miami's Dwyane Wade posted a photo of himself from a previous photo shoot wearing a hooded shirt, otherwise known as a hoodie, to his Twitter and Facebook pages on Friday morning. A couple hours later, James posted another photo - this one of the Heat team, all wearing hoodies, their heads bowed, their hands stuffed into their pockets. The photo was taken at the team hotel, though it was not clear when it was snapped.

I feel it was a tragedy and my condolences to the family. But we need to realize we don't know the whole story. And for those of you out there trying to play police, aka Paul Blart, this is what can happen.

Good comment, very true we don't know the whole story, but the 911 call will tell us quite a bit.

oh they were out during the daytime too. Unfortunately, 5 lovely ladies took away my troll gun and held me hostage with b00bs, sake bombs, and beer so I couldn't be on watch last night lol.

Sounds like you were in peril, AJ...
