The NBA is paying tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. in a touching way.

Ahead of their games on Monday, which is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, teams like the Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Brooklyn Nets, Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers will don a special shirt that honors Dr. King, the civil-rights icon who was assassinated in 1968.

The shirts, which will be worn during team warm-ups, features one of Dr. King's impactful quotes from his famous "I Have a Dream" speech ("Now is the time to make justice a reality for all") on the front, while the back reads, "HONOR KING," alongside his signature.
