Respekte nou is a reference to the message the shooting guard wore on his jersey during the 2020 NBA Bubble in Orlando, Florida. The message means “respect us” in Creole — Dort is of Haitian descent. Players were able to customize their jerseys to include messaging related to the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

Lu Dort sustained a concussion in Saturday’s game against the Boston Celtics. He is currently in concussion protocol and is expected to miss a number of games because of this.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are currently in a rebuilding period, which has resulted in their uneasy 19–27 record. They currently place second to last in the Western Conference.

Watch Respekte nou on RDS, premiering March 31, 7:30 p.m.
