    The players and coach make him money so he probably doesn't care.

    If he had gone the "hey, I own the clippers, how bout you don't get a picture with one of the most famous lakers of all time" route it may have been better.

    Re: Donald Sterling (Owner of the Clippers) is incredibly racist

    Isn't this also the same guy that for most of the 1990s and 2000s publicly took pride in having a team that lost 60+ games a year because at the end of the year it was an extremely profitable team?

    Never liked the guy to begin with, but SMH at this.

    Re: Donald Sterling (Owner of the Clippers) is incredibly racist

    I think that any "black" players on his team should stay home. "You said you don't want black people at you games." Heck, I wouldn't want to play for this guy (although given my supreme lack of athleticism, not playing would probably help any team that I was on).

    Exactly - that's like the blueprint for getting caught saying something stupid on Twitter, texts, phone, etc. Don't own up to it; say it was taken out of context; etc. Someone said it best...what a colossal *******

    Re: Donald Sterling (Owner of the Clippers) is incredibly racist

    In other breaking news, water is wet! He has been racist d-bag for a long time. Players knew what they were getting into.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: Donald Sterling (Owner of the Clippers) is incredibly racist

    I don't expect to hear an apology from him. Sterling has a long, well documented history of racist remarks and atrocious behavior, but not a lot in the way of apologies. This is who he's been for a long time. The fact that this time he got on tape doesn't change much for those who have close followers of the NBA for the last few decades.

    Re: Donald Sterling (Owner of the Clippers) is incredibly racist

    It's not just the racism. I'm trying to wrap my mind around the fact he is openly having an affair with a women who is obviously not white, sits courtside with her, yet has issue with her sitting with and taking pictures with black guys. No problem if she sleeps with them, just don't be publicly associated with them. Whaaa? I understand elderly rich people are probably about as detached from reality as it gets. Doubly so for the ones living in LA. But still, how does he reconcile that thinking?

    it it is literally the exact mentality of a slave owner. Don't associate yourselves with them, just profit off them, sleep with them, etc.

    to him minorities are not people they are tools

    Exactly. I don't expect an apology from DS at all. If he does it will only be is his hand is forced and if he believes it will benefit him.

    The NBA needs to deal with this like the Marge Schott situation. Show this a$$clown the door. I can't believe this attitude can still exist in society. He did say she could sleep with black folks so he's got that going for him....I guess

    Re: Donald Sterling (Owner of the Clippers) is incredibly racist

    Read his wiki page. This isn't the first time he's been accused of being a racist. Sounds like a pretty screwed up dude.

    Invasion of his privacy. I bet there are plenty of people here that wouldn't want every thing said at home put online.
