Things have been going too well for the Clippers, so Sterling of course has to correct that by running his ignorant, racist mouth again. mad

The NBA needs to step in and give him the Marge Schott treatment already, this is getting ridiculous.

Was going to post this. As if I needed another reason to defend being a Clipper fan for this long. Oh man. Right in the middle of playoffs too. I hope this doesn't affect the mindset of our players.

This is going to be a huge f***** distraction now. I'm no longer confident at all in this series, and even worse, in the future of this franchise, unless the NBA forces Sterling out.

If this piece of trash isn't forced to sell and his racism ends up bringing us back down to lottery status again, I'm done with this franchise for good.

Fuckface just had to pull this around playoff time. You gotta wonder how the players feel about this.

Imagine what Chris and Doc think about this. We are f***ed. Seriously. Season over.

This is ridiculous!!!! We take 1 step forward and 100 back with this crap!!

I'm tired of this guy already. Enough is enough.

Can the NBA take the team from sterling?

If the other owners don't step in at this point, they are just as complicit as he is. The fans, the players, the coaches, and the good people in the organization don't deserve to be tainted by this senile, racist piece of **** and his vile rantings. DO THE RIGHT THING AND FORCE HIM OUT!!!

I just saw this. I said it before and Clippers fans got mad at me but this guy is a grade A piece of ****. People don't change that easily.

He certainly hasn't. Scumbag. Just as bad as trash like Mark Jackson.

Maybe it's wrong but I don't really associate him with the team anymore. He just signs the checks. This is Docs team and I have to believe that Doc will keep the players focused.

Repped High Quality Post

I listened to the whole thing... I (being black) didn't find anything he said offensive... She obviously recorded this out of spite to get him riled up. He didn't say he hated black people, he didn't say he was racist.. All he said was she didn't want her taking pictures with people on instagram... this one person happened to be black. He doesn't want to publicize his girlfriend being out with other people. He even said she can do whatever she wanted privately. Just don't publicize it. Maybe sterling "has" racist friends and they question him about certain things... doesn't necessarily mean he is the racist. He said he loved black people etc (and that is not knowing he was being recorded). I could imagine other people saying much worse.. To know that he didn't know he was being recorded.. he is a scholar.

The media associates him with the team and they're going to be the ones spreading the distraction.

I just don't understand how the league can stand idly by for so long and let this piece of **** keep tarnishing the image of the NBA with his racist rants.

DTS is garbage and it's his own dumb fault for messing with groupie hoes like this. Kinda sounds like she wanted to set him up and extort money from him.

You are "never confident nor are you positive about anything, ever". At the first sign that something is going wrong you bail. You are such a flip flopper. I'd rather beans talk because at least he's consistently against our team. You are consistently inconsistent.

I'm sorry, but you're clueless.

Fact: The media is going to have a field day with this. You don't think it's going to distract the players? He's already trending on Twitter now.

Fact: League officials might be getting involved here. That's exactly what we need during a playoff series - the league investigating our team. roll

Sterling opened his mouth at the worst possible time of the year and created a massive distraction during a playoff series. Try to write it off all you'd like, but it's the truth.

Agreed. I can't remember the last time the name Donald Sterling crossed my mind. He's an idiot, but as long as he's willing to sign the players that Doc's recruiting, it won't affect the team. It's unfortunate that he had to create bad publicity for the Clippers, but it's not surprising. I've heard the horror stories about the racist things Sterling has allegedly done.

Its people like you guys that make things like this a big deal. Its your judging... I've said worse about black, mexican, white, asian, etc etc... The fact that he didn't know he was being recorded and kept it so PC I have to give props to him. Sorry guys.. I don't see things the way you do.

He didn't use the "N" word once... he said minorities and black people... both are fine in my book.

Then you're as bad as he is. Some of us aren't bigots and therefore can't see it your way.

Really, you see nothing wrong with him saying he doesn't want black people at his games because he didn't use the "N-word"?

Fandom =/= blind apologism. I refuse to defend this piece of **** and his bigotry just because I'm a fan of the Clippers, and nobody should feel the need to do so.

he said he didn't want "her" bringing black people. Probably because of sterling's friends. I doubt its because of sterling.

And obviously that he said it, that goes without saying. The clippers really are cursed. I think he will be forced out

What does it matter what race we are? I'm upset because our piece of **** owner made an ass out of himself again at the worst possible time. Everyone else should be too.

Unbelievable that not accepting bigotry is apparently seen as "trolling" on this website.

That wouldn't be a curse. Shoving the senile old piece of **** out of the league would be the best thing to ever happen to this franchise.

Go back and listen to the whole thing again.. try to use your brain and think about his responses.. think about the situation. I think he handled it rather well.. especially not knowing he was being recorded and being in a heated argument.

Audio clip of Sterling being racist in a conversation with his bi-racial girlfriend.

Sterling isn't out on the court playing... Everyone know's he's a pos... but he is cutting the checks.... Its Doc's team. Doc is running it. You know the #1 thing the clippers try to portray? MENTAL TOUGHNESS. You may want to read up on it.

I'm not supporting Sterling. I'm not saying he's a good guy.. All that I am saying is what he said on this recording "isnt that bad". That is all.

Use your brain and understand why any owner - especially one with a past like Sterling's - would have to be entitled and stupid to an INSANE degree to ever say the words "don't bring black people to my games" in ANY context - especially one in which they can easily be recorded. If that wasn't enough, he dragged a beloved and revered NBA legend in Magic Johnson into his drama.

Sorry, but there is no excuse here, this is cut and dried. Sterling is once again bringing shame to this franchise with his bigotry. Even if it is "out of context" (which I highly doubt), I have zero sympathy for him because he brings it on himself. End of story.

I'm not even going to listen to the audio. There's no way it will change my perception of him anyways. I already think he's the scum of the earth. No need for any negativity when I have the playoffs to be happy for.

But Donald, seriously f*ck off and take your eternal rest already.

They should never have to be in a position to do that.

He needs to be forced to sell the team. Come on Silver, grow a pair. Show us that you're a better commissioner than Stern.

The media will finally start talking about the clippers, unfortunately its going to be about how much of a racist our owner is.

What a shock, the same drama queen master of panic JQuick32 is freaking out over a tabloid video (and not shockingly he's crossposted this at the exact same time on the other Clipper forum even though he denies that he is BlueJaysClippers). I wonder if JQuick32 has even listened to the audio that has gotten him into such a tizzy. Well, I just did-- all 9 1/2 min of it, and it's not nearly as bad as the site makes it seem. Basically this is a huge setup by his whore golddigger girlfriend who is obviously baiting him to....
