So whether you're a fan of the Warriors or the Cavs (or any other team) you're covered.

It's a pretty big deal, considering American sports have generally lagged behind the general public when it comes to social issues.

The NBA, NHL, MLB and NFL have created pride-themed merchandise in the past, but this is the first time a league has made pride products featuring every one of its teams available, according to the Washington Post. Moves like this are doubly important for the NBA, which has the youngest audience of all the major American sports.

But the NBA has been a leader on LGBT issues among American sports leagues.

The league has routinely fined players for using homophobic slurs.

Big ups to the NBA for the assist.
