LMFAO, We all knew he was a douche and there were allegations of him being a racist before. What a grade A asshat.

Someone merge the threads

 

This guy is a horrible person. Someone like this shouldn't even be allowed to own an NBA team

Is the Woman shown in the image his GF though? If so, she seems semi-black herself or some kinda mixed.

“You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games.”

 

That's just disturbing in various ways.

Supposedly Black and Mexican.

How do the Clippers players/coach play for this owner? Them succeeding puts money in his pocket. Guess they have to put it aside, and deal with it later.

In all honesty if the paycheck is good enough, I am sure most in the Clipper organization can put up with it, aside from Doc as a coach I don't think the players themselves come into contact with Sterling much.

Not talking about collecting your regular check, I'm talking about them succeeding in the playoffs puts money in his pocket.

Magic Johnson: Donald Sterling is Shameful! 

 

Magic Johnson tells TMZ Sports ... "it's a shame" that Donald Sterling feels his girlfriend shouldn't bring black people to Clippers games. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Sterling went crazy on his GF after she posted a photo of her with Magic on Instagram -- with Sterling saying she shouldn't be seen in public with blacks. 

Magic tells us, "It's a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about African-Americans."

He adds, "He has a team full of amazing African-American basketball players that are working to bring a championship to Clippers fans. The Clippers also have a strong minority fan base."

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Actually... Sterling is who he is, lol. I have this aching feeling like his girlfriend has an ulterior motive in this though. 

 

Hope it's just me.

I'm personally shocked ESPN hasn't said anything about this yet.

I just meant regardless, I am sure most didn't like him to begin with, much less now. Players play for themselves, and if you're a lucky franchise for their teammates and the coaching staff, that sense of camaraderie.

 

In the past this was brushed off since Sterling as long had a racist reputation, but now since the Clippers are actually relevant I wonder what the attention will be.

 

Still its got to sting, after all Doc is married to a white woman, and Blake is an interracial child of a black/white couple.
