D. Rose…much respect.

The Chicago Bulls star made a strong fashion statement last night in honor of Eric Garner, an African American man who died in July after an overaggressive police officer placed him in a chokehold while he was being arrested for selling quote,unquote ‘illegal cigarettes’.

A grand jury decided this past week not to indict the officer in Garner’s death. The decision has lead to a slew of protest all over the states. During the Chicago Bulls pregame warmups last night, Rose elected to silently protest by wearing a black t-shirt which read “I Can’t Breathe”, the last words we heard Garner gasping and saying during the fatal encounter which was caught on videotape.
