The Los Angeles Lakers are the latest team to acknowledge the mass shooting that took place in Thousand Oaks on November 7th. Prior to their matchup with the Atlanta Hawks, both teams sported shirts that said “Enough.” on the front while listing the name of the victims on the back.

The two teams join the Clippers and Bucks who started the trend for the league when they first wore the warm-up shirts before their contest on Saturday. However, the Los Angeles Kings were the first team to do something in response to the shooting. Prior to their game against the Minnesota Wild, the Kings held a moment of silence for the victims while holding up signs on the bench that relayed the message of “Enough.”

When news of the tragedy broke, the organization, as well as its players, went to Twitter to offer their condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

Against the Hawks, the Lakers took action by allowing their voices to be heard and honoring the victims of the shooting.
