NBA Players Can Honor Flip Saunders, NFL Players Can't Honor Their Dead Parents

LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 28: Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Lakers team wear t-shirts to honor the passing of Philip "Flip" Saunders before the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center on October 28, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Kobe Bryant was just one NBA player who honored recently-deceased NBA coach Flip Saunders with a t-shirt Wednesday night. Kobe wore it in the pre-game layup lines, and then while on the bench.

There’s zero indication he’ll be fined by the NBA.

Reminder: The NFL is fining players who attempt to honor their deceased parents by wearing a certain color of cleats (for domestic violence) or eye black (cancer). Just shameful, Roger Goodell. And if you hear anyone counter with, “but if you let one person do it …” no, it doesn’t work that way.
