Basketball sure as hell isn't the right sport for someone hating of black people.

He's a slave master, dude. Guy looks at his black players like fine livestock. It's sadly the most accurate assessment. He's been known to bring women into the locker room after games, telling them to look "their beautiful black bodies" like he just picked the strongest slaves off of the auction block.

Guy's a total piece of :censored: and can't find a permanent home in a wooden box soon enough.

I just listened to the recording, very bizarre! Was he saying that inter-racial friendships are ok as long as they are kept private?

It seemed like an irrational 9 minute conversation of "What will the neighbors think?!?".

Since Stern is gone, hopefully the new commissioner can do something about it. Wonder if the players will want out after the season.

Tweets are saying the players are furious.

I'm hoping Warriors and Clippers hold some kind of a standoff in their next game. Refuse to take the floor or something.

Edit: Looks like they held a players-only meeting.

I want Donald Sterling and Rob Ford to hang out and just be magnificently disgusting together.

Reality show? Printing money with that gold.

I don't want you bringing black people to your drunken stupor, Rob.

If non-natives are looking for a reason why the Clippers aren't as beloved of a sports franchise as the Lakers or Kings are in Los Angeles, here's one reason why. It's really unfathomable how the local franchise with the most stable and healthy future on the field can have such a bastard of an owner, while the other Staples Center tenants are regressing towards mediocrity despite having well-worthy owners.

As a Clipper fan, I have mixed feelings. I'm sad and angry for the players, coaches, and front-office guys who had nothing to do with this and don't deserve this. I'm also livid at David Stern for enabling this piece of :censored: owner for decades and making him feel invincible. And there isn't even a word in the English language to describe how angry I am at the piece of :censored: owner (I won't even say his name) for once again bringing shame to this franchise with his bigotry.

On the other hand, this :censored:storm could be the best thing to ever happen to the Clippers. I genuinely feel that we will have new ownership by the time this saga ends, whether it's by the piece of :censored: owner finally selling or the NBA taking over and selling the franchise themselves. I hope the Dodgers' ownership buys the team so Magic can have the last laugh in that piece of :censored:'s face.

Ultimately, the good people of the organization need the fans' support now more than ever, so I will still be rooting for them. It's just a damn shame that the piece of :censored: owner had to put a dark cloud over the team for the rest of the season.

BTW, some Clipper fans are trying to get a protest going for Game 5 where the entire crowd, or as many of it as possible, wears black instead of the usual red T-shirts. Please don't assume that the fanbase supports our piece of :censored: owner, we're just as sick of him as everyone else.

i don't see the NBA forcing an owner out, i could see significant fines coming though. and the fans should protest by not going to the game, i know they already paid for the tickets but they at least wouldn't be able to buy concessions and parking that go straight to the owners pocket. also i feel the empty seats would be a bigger visual "FU" than having a packed house full of black shirts

As a Clipper fan and as a man of color I don't have many words that are constructive so I'll just say this:

I'm sorry that the men and women of that organization have to be put in such a terrible situation. They are just trying to make a living like everyone else and should not be asked to boycott either. The man doesn't deserve another dime but my team deserves the support and with that comes dollar signs. It's unfortunate for sure.

I just hope the players can play through this. I can't imagine having something you fought for and dreamt about getting such a black cloud over it. Say if they win the title...how do they celebrate on that stage with a man that sees them as something other than equal?

Like what? Racism and bigotry are not illegal in the greater sense*. A commissioner, with a legal background like Silver, who has been on the job less than 90 days is not going to make this his first task, period.

*-Sterling was fined $2.725M in a housing-related racial discrimination suit in 2009.

EDIT: Regardless of what you think of Sterling, what type of person records a phone call without the other person's consent?

That's a move of a ,regardless of gender, a buster...a snitch! I'd rather befriend a racist/bigot than a snitch.

California is a two-party consent state.

And Sterling's wife filed a suit against the woman who gave TMZ the recordings in March.
