Amazing!!!!!

See, this is why I freakin love the MIAMI HEAT!!!!

J Small

Instead of taking 2 minutes to snap a pic, take $2,000 out of your savings and start a Trayvon Martin fund. Reverse that ridiculous FL law that allowed him to be shot.

#respect rip trayvon

Much respect! Thank you #TrayvonMartin

#JusticeForTrayvon Amazing!!!

Where's Waldo

Where's Mike Miller at?

Brett

Thanks. Normally not a fan of you guys, but a grow show of solidarity. Don't stop now.

@J Small, do you even know if these players have or haven't donated any money? Do you even know the countless charities these players dedicated their time and money to every year? Why can't you just take the picture for what it's worth and recognize that they are in support of Trayvon instead of picking this moment to further bash them.

Amazing show of Support. Take That Geraldo Rivera

Amazing show of support. Take that Geraldo Rivera

You guys forgot the skittles

Mike Miller is still hurt therefore he did not travel with the team. I had to double check b/c I thought the same thing when I first saw the picture.

Wow...a picture worth a thousand words....

Amazing #respect

RIP TRAYVON MARTIN

Trayvon Martin: this would not have been much of a story if Zimmerman had been immediately arrested. My point is that nobody beyond his family *really* cares that the kid was shot dead, they are upset because we haven't been able to seek our retribution. Yes, there is disparate treatment, and I'm pretty sure it would have gone down differently if he was white and the shooter was black; but all people really want is to get angry after the fact, not change the laws that make these types of incidents less likely.

This picture is far more powerful than any quote

Joel Frazier

this show luv/respect for Mr.Trayvon Martin

Kiana

EVERYBODY PRAY

Wow they put there hoods up. What heroes.

RC

readALLMEDIAOUTLETS you're an uninformed imbecil and it's those like you that help fuel misinformation & get the WRONG people blamed. A COP DID NOT SHOOT TM dumbass...it was a neighborhood watchman...BIG difference!!!

Damn thats real teamwork #JusticeForAll

Justice

Is it possible that Justice can mean Zimmerman is not guilty? Can justice be "self defense"? I fear it can't be, I fear that no result is ok unless it is Zimmerman in jail. He maybe guilty, and if he is he should die. Just worried America has already come to a decision.

amazing!!!

panther

That's awesome.

<3 <3 <3 and gratitude

Perfect !!! I love the Heat now!!! This was awesome!!

I love it! RIP Trayvon Martin

Ya'll look pretty suspicious right now...smh. this is great tweet, thanks LBJ & Miami Heat.

I can respect this.

overzealous

13 suspicious males... many of them shooters.

Bill

Pure class. Well done.

<3

Does me proud to know we both are born & raised.. Cleveland, OHIO & GOT OUT! Thank you for standing up for this child who will NEVER see his dreams come true!!! God Bless You ALL!

ME

I don't even like the Heat but I applaud LeBron & DWade for doing something the so-called greatest player ever (MJ) couldn't or wouldn't do...taking a stand on an issue that matters. Nuff Respect....way to represent!

This is some real -ish right here. Happy to see the Miami Heat coming correct on a social/political issue of great seriousness.

You all are truly amazing. This pic is humbling. THANK YOU for setting the proper celebrity example!

Take that shit Geraldo.

Thats why this is my team.

Amazing! I'm glad to see you guys are paying attention and making your voices heard.

I love it "HOODIE HEAT" Justice for Trayvon Martin!!!!!!!!!!!

Much respect for standing up and out of a comfort zone...

great statement, gentlemen. well done. if you don't like this, rather than criticize them and tell them what to do with their money and time, do what YOU can with YOUR money and time to make your own statement. recognizable men pausing for an injustice is much stronger than unknowns spewing criticism through the anonymity of the internet.

Much respect for standing up and out of a comfort zone..

That's sick

Let's continue this support for our community. #Trayvon Martin

I'm not a Miami Heat fan, nor am I an NBA fan at all, but this is just plain amazing! A powerful message indeed!

WOW- Deep

OUR MIAMI HEAT players wearing hoodies SUPPORTING TRAYVON MARTIN

Standup!!

Very Powerful, Awesome & Amazing pic. I truly love and respect you guys for standing up and speaking out for an innocent child waiting to finally be able to rest in peace. #trayvonmartin

Pat Freeland

WE ALL WANT JUSTICE. "PEACE"

Man, this is so powerful. God Bless You!

Best message ever. Thank you.

David

Not a King James fan but I give him and the whole team props!

tsteiden

grow up

Joe Mama

Lets pose in hoodies and look like thugs which is why he got shot in the first place. Stupid. Think outside the box guys.

No matter how successful, all basketball players have hearts, which makes this one of the most respected games in the world

Joe Mama. you are missing the point. Thats exactly it. Being black and wearing a hoodie should not make u a target.. or make u look like a thug. A hoodie is simply an item of clothing. Why can whites wear hoodies and not be considered thugs? just accept the pic for what it is. a powerful tribute.

You want to be hatin on them for standin in hoodies ("grow up", "Lets pose in hoodies and look like thugs which is why he got shot in the first place. Stupid. Think outside the box guys.") , you aren't any better than Zimmerman! Leave the Hate at the door~

Well done.

Stand Up World!!!

absolutely wonderful

truth teller

Don't be so quick to fall all over Lebron and company! THIS IS WEAK!!! They have the power and influence to make something happen with this situation!!! But all they are doing is posing for a phot that brings more attention to the Miami Heat then is does JUSTICE in the case. JUST WATCH LEBRON and THE HEAT DISAPPEAR after their publicity stunt... SHAMELESS... & you sheep are falling for it!

Much Respect

Ruth

Thank you, Heat hoodies.

Yes sir!!! #Salute

Shelia

Much respect to the Heat ...class act !!! This madness needs to stop thoughts and much support to the family </3

spectacular image - it is copyrighted? Or could it be used elsewhere?

I am a girl and I wear hoodies could i be shot? Things like this should not be happening

jon gilbonni

sad for the kid and his family but how about giving support to more kids senseless deaths of different races.Complete BIAS!!!!

jon gilbonni

any opportunity to be in the news!!!Support behind the scenes and make a difference!!Typical Jabroni James,D Fade and little followers!!!

hal

The Hate was shown, when the Killer was asked by a Police Dispatcher: "Are you following him"? Killer: "Yep" Police Dispatcher: "We don't need you to do that..." Killer: "OK" But the Killer lied to the Police Dispatcher, and left the safety of his truck anyway... and KILLED a child! The Killer said he feared for his life??? Here are the factors of safety: 1. The Killer had his Truck, for protection, and could flee away 2. The Killer had his cell phone 3. The Killer had his gun 4. The Killer had his neighbors 5. The Killer had already contacted the Police 6. The Killer out weighted the child, and could over power the person 7. The Killer was supported, and proper directions by the dispatcher. 8. The Killer could had used and sounded the horn of his SUV, while in the safety of his cab. So, where is the threat, and where is the fear? Only HATE could have any rational human being ignore all the factors Ive'd listed. THIS WAS A HATE CRIME!, PLAIN AND SIMPLE! WE HAVE THE TAPES!!! Hal-

made me cry ....

wow, i'm impressed. good to see an entire generation of high profile athletes don't subscribe to the Michael Jordan School of anti-political statements. Money isn't everything!

"DON'T SHOOT" HOODIES & T-SHIRTS FOR MEN & LADIES http://robertoraymon.com/archives/912 <<GET THEM HERE!! -- http://pic.twitter.com/NkFMbFFD

Salahuddeen Abdul Kareem

I'm proud of Lebron and the entire Miami team for taking a stand about this terrible tragedy. Very often, high profile athletes are afraid to take public stands about serious issues that might have a negative impact on their careers. But again, I'm very proud of this gesture. Wearing a hoodie isn't a crime and Geraldo's racist comments only reflect his sick mind which has been polluted and toxic for a long, long time. Thanks guys for acting responsibly and courageously.

Truth

these guys look like idiots.

Truth

I do not care how people try to twist the facts, but wearing a hoodie at night time when it is 70 degrees like you are a thug would get you treated like a thug. This is a tragedy Zimmermans over zealous actions, meet a young man trying to portray a gangsta hood and now we have this disaster.

Thank you for taking a stand!!! Much Respect!!!

This Is So Great.

Funny how all the haters dont even post with an actual name... ty heat for voicing out instead of staying silent unlike so many other athletes. And ty heat for the many many charities and events you do help those in need. Love and respect my heat boys! #justice #stereotyped

Love the solidarity this situation has brought about

Truth

Whats funny is all these people jumping to conclusions when a witness has stepped forward and said Travon was assaulting Zimmerman what do you have to say now? Oh by the way this is the same crap that happen in NC with the Duke Lacrosse team. Remember that case? Oh do we forget.

#Respect. Praying 4 every #NBA team 2 stand w/ #MiamiHeat & stand up 4 #TrayvonMartin.

Way to go Miami heat Ima wear a hood tomorrow to show respect to this kid #respect

Thank you for this incredible photo. My heart is full with mourning and rage and solidarity.

Read the facts before you assume things. Black on Black crimes happen all over the country and we do not hear a word on that. But god forbid we hear a white person shoots a black person(which that "white" person was Hispanic) and we try to make it a huge story. Very frustrating

TU Madre

FOR ALL THOSE LEBRON HATERS, THIS SHOWS HOW NICE AND CARING AND SMART HE ACTUALLY IS

#TrayvonMartin/Emmett Till = the system STILL declares open season on Black people #WeAreAllTrayvon #WeNeedRevolution http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RWYy0aR0Pc

Kim O

I have no idea who these players are, but I am crying. How solemn, how weary, how understated and yet, powerful. My sons are Trayvon; my heart, always with the souls of my people, holds his memory near.

Great. How about speaking out for Mumia Abu-Jamal. Bissinger wrote a hit piece on him before your biography. Bob M.

I'm just glad to see a celebrity, ANY celebrity finally take a controversial stance involving something other than a personal topic/subject.

Kae

respect for a teen that beat another mans head into concrete? Seriously? Is that what you show support for? thug mentality and actions.
