Actually, this is a good thing. The loss of sponsorships puts even more pressure on the league to get DTS out.

So are State Farm and KIA backing off or still thinking about it? Sucks long term if he stays the purpose of a big market is the endorsements. Losing the advantage will be brutal.

DTS has to man up and set up a press conference to let the world know he is stepping down for good. This has to end today. There is no tomorrow. DTS owes the City, the minorities, and the long time fans who just got their dream shattered. I hope this moron has the decency to make this right before game 5.

I hope CP and BG are not down by this situation, but see at as strong means or strategy to get rid of DTS. State Farm may have met CP and Kia with BG to discuss the circumstances. Who knows.

He won't do that. It appears that he now won't have a choice, though, since the Board of Governors is going to rewrite the bylaws of the league to allow them to force him out. All the other owners want him gone.

Yes, no debate there. That would be the best and only solution to this mess.

I'm with you, CJ. Also, I'm going to miss seeing all the Blake and Chris commercials during timeouts. Now we'll just have to see more of those terrible FarmersOnly.com commercials. Hahahah.

TBH, I was kind of getting bored with the Cliff Paul and Blake Kia ads. They were being run into the ground anyway and annoyed people, further feeding into the hate for our team.

Like I've said before, do you really think a man who spent 80 years of his life being an intolerant racist will all of a sudden sell his billion dollar empire just because it's the right thing to do?

I wish that was a possibility, but Sterling's brain isn't wired like most peoples. He's a sociopath, and we can't expect him to act any different than what he's already shown in the past.

Next, Doc asked to be released from his contract. BG and CP demand a trade. Ism glad I'm not seeing any support from this scumbag of an owner

At first I was getting worries because the ads were bailing, but really.. this is just a necessary part of the process and is expected. Plus, if the only thing that Sterling understands is money, this is one of the big ways to make him consider giving everything up and making a profit before it's all gone..

Red Bull is suspending "all team-related marketing activities" with the Clippers but will continue to support Blake Griffin.

I like how many of these big sponsorships are "suspended/paused." Maybe they're hoping for a quick resolution, too?

Oh Gawd. This is truly what nightmares are made of. I hope Sterling acquiesces and does the right thing and sell to someone else not related to him. He is a pariah and the NBA has a huge mark against it for sweeping his past racist behaviors under the rug and not doing anything about it then.

This is not unexpected, and in a good way puts even more pressure on Sterling and the NBA. If the by-laws can be re-written to force out Sterling, then it would be terrific. I'm not sure, however, how quickly that could be done & then approved. The Golden State Warriors owner is probably like- let's wait until the series is over, lol.

DTS please sell the team, you're NOT going to make another cent with this team.

Damn red bull had the best commercials with Blake. What in the world are we going to show if KFC pulls out and want to do the bucket chart? Lol

I hope CP3 and Blake will announce tomorrow that he wants a trade after this season, to pressure sterling to step down for good or sell the team immediately. It's sad I lost my hope that we will become a champion in WC this season. And hopefully NBA champion. We need miracle.

Statefarm and Kia will continue to support Chris and Blake as players, so they will still run the commercials. They just won't sponsor the Clippers or run the commercials during Clipper games until DTS leaves.

Wishful thinking, but it's NEVER gonna happen. He's gonna drag this team back into the ground with him. Because at the end of the day he will never let the NBA, the players or the fans win. He wants to have the last laugh and word at all costs. Even it it means destroying the entire franchise. Its sad, but true. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news guys.

This is great! As many sponsors leave the Clips, this will definitely hurt Donald on his pocket.

exactly. as every sponsor drops, that's less money on how much the Clippers are worth. If he wants to make the most of it, sell now. i don't care how much he makes as long as all power is stripped from this bastard!

The sponsors pulling out is the best thing that could happen. It makes the public see how bad what he did was. The whole world will know and it's good advertizing for them. DTS will never Man Up. Would Attila the Hun (major hyperbole) man up? He made billions by being a fearless and dirty fighter and he won't stop. He has no shame. HE HAS TO BE FORCED TO LEAVE or the league at least has to try to force him out no matter what. He has done significant damage to the league not only financially but to it's reputation WORLD WIDE. Sterling may just shut down the team out of spite. The goal isn't suspension it's trying to stop his control and have league appointed people run it till it's settled in court and put profits in escrow. Are there morals clauses in league owner's contracts?

He won't lose much. He won't pay anybody and say "sue me"

He would lose a lot more actually. Before he would make money out of sponsors from all those losing seasons. Now with bare bone what is left promoting the team, there basically no revenue coming in anymore. Just the tax money he have to pay for going over the salary cap Razz.

Btw: is Barry's ticket still sponsoring us?

Isn't this franchise basically a financial burden on the league now? The NBA has to do SOMETHING to get this piece of **** out of the league now, right?
