Cavs’ Jordan Clarkson wears shirt with important message after Nipsey Hussle’s death

Cavs, Jordan Clarkson

Rapper Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside of his clothing store in Los Angeles on March 31. To make a statement after the rapper’s passing, Cavs shooting guard Jordan Clarkson decided to wear a T-shirt with a meaningful slogan before Sunday’s road game against the Phoenix Suns.

Clarkson’s message was simple: “Stop shooting people.”

Jordan Clarkson went on to notch 20 points, six rebounds and three assists after donning the shirt.

According to the coroner’s report, Hussle was “found to have died from gunshot wounds to the head and torso.” He was taken to a nearby hospital, then later pronounced dead. The Los Angeles Police Department is calling his death a “certified homicide.” He was 33 years old.

At first, it was not clear who shot Hussle. Now, however, the LAPD has named 29-year-old Eric Holder as a suspect in the case. Police believe Holder is associated with gang activity, but they feel that the motive here was personal:

Hundreds of Hussle’s supporters gathered outside of his clothing store on Sunday night to pay their respects.

Like Clarkson, several celebrities chose to express their opinions on gun violence in the days after Hussle’s death, including Drake, Rihanna, Meek Mill, LeBron James and Stephen Curry:

Hussle became a beloved member of his community. However, he was shot and killed in the same neighborhood where he grew up.
