The Miami Heat won their fourth straight victory Friday night, defeating the Detroit Pistons, but the team scored even bigger news by honoring Trayvon Martin.

Players took the floor with messages such as "RIP Trayvon Martin" and "We want justice" written on their sneakers.

Dwayne Wade added to that, posting on his Twitter and Facebook pages, an emotionally stark picture of 13 Heat players, all wearing team-logo hoodies, their heads bowed.

As has been reporting, Martin was killed as he was returning to a gated community, carrying candy and iced tea.  Neighborhood crime-watch volunteer George Zimmerman shot the teen, claiming it was self-defense.

Martin happened to be wearing a hoodie, which Fox news anchor Geraldo Rivera shockingly claimed was the reason Zimemrman shot Martin.

"I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly not to let their children go out wearing hoodies," Rivera said.  "I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin's death as much as George Zimmerman was."
