Anthony Davis is ready for Game 3.
The Los Angeles Lakers star showed up to the game in his “Sunday Best” wearing a black Colin Kaepernick jersey. It’s the No. 7 with the San Francisco 49ers emblem.
Los Angeles is up 2-0 in the series against the Miami Heat. Davis scored 34 points in Game 1 and 32 in Game 2.
LeBron James also sported a Kaepernick jersey during the postseason. He walked into Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals in Nike’s new monochromatic No. 7 jersey that sold out immediately later that week.

The Icon Jersey 2.0 was to honor four years since Kaepernick first took a knee while the national anthem was playing. He protested to bring awareness to issues of police brutality and racism. The former quarterback wrote in an Instagram reveal the number has “come to represent something greater than football, something greater than me.”
NBA players have devoted themselves to social justice messages while in the bubble at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. James and Davis linked arms near midcourt and took a knee during the anthem when the NBA tipped off the remainder of its 2019-20 season this summer. James said afterward he hoped the demonstration — which came after the death of George Floyd sparked action across the country — made Kaepernick proud.
