|See? Not racist IMO.|
If you know anything about Donald Sterling, then this really isn't surprising. The guy is a big racist. He could be Ide's grandpa. He is definitely Ide's mentor. Sterling is a well known slumlord and has been widely regarded as the worst owner in all of sports. His peers and employees have always hated him. He probably says things like "I'm not a racist, I'm fucking half a black chick!" and then he LULZ with all his buddies like Cliven Bundy and Rush. So Sterling's camp says that the audio was doctored which I suppose it could be since he is suing the GF and the GF vowed vengeance for this. But it isn't and everyone knows it.
I don't want to play Devil's Advocate here but what if he was only looking out for the young, buxom Stiviano lass? What if Sterling doesn't want her hanging out with Magic Johnson for her own safety? What if he doesn't understand how HIV works? I mean, he is old and decrepit. What if Donald Sterling actually thinks that HIV can be transferred via Instagram pics? He's just trying to protect his own penis and blood stream! Yeah, that's the ticket! But enough of that. Let's break down all the TAEKS!
*Magic Johnson vows to never go to another Clippers game - Yeah, Don is going to be just fine with that, buddy. Way to give him what he wants. You should pledge to attend EVERY home game. Just troll the shit out of him.
*People like Whitlock (probably...fucking whale) say that the Clippers players should not show up until Sterling is gone - Whether Sterling stays or goes or if he is a cocksucker or not (he is), that doesn't change the FACT that you are paid to do a job. You're JOB is to WIN BASKETBALL GAMES. This is the fucking playoffs. It isn't the time to start taking a stand against the guy who signs your checks. Racist or not, he still provides your alimony. This is the WORST IDEA. DERP stop playing hoops DERP! Get fucked, people who said that this should happen.
*LeBron said that Sterling has no business being in the NBA - Uhhhhhh yeah, and he hasn't in 20 fucking years. Thanks for the breaking news there, King. There aren't a lot of places anywhere for extremely racist slumlords. Ironically, I never saw many of your African American peers refusing to accept his money.
*Adam Silver wants to give Sterling his due process before ruling - WTF? You have YEARS of this sort of behavior to know that this circumstance is accurate. Hell, you even have a blueprint in another sport. Just look at how MLB took the Reds away from Marge Schott because she was a Nazi and do the exact same thing. Due process? Fuck you. Grow a goddamn spine and make this the first big move of your time as commissioner. Sterling should not be an owner in the NBA. Get him the fuck out.
*Baron Davis dropped the biggest TROOF bomb - Whoa. According to Baron, Sterling used to sit courtside and drop epitaphs at his own black players! Did he call them all Toby? Oh God, please say that he did!
My molten hot take, you ask? Look, obviously Don Sterling is a sack of shit. If it's possible for the NBA to make him sell then they should and should have years ago. But I'll tell you this: all of those "holier than thou" assholes need to look in the fucking mirror. Bill Simmons has chronicled Sterling's past for years yet still had no problem paying for courtside season tickets. Doc Rivers is on his second tour of duty with the Clippers. He knows who he works for but doesn't care. Baron Davis signed a monster free agency deal when he had other options but swallowed his tongue in order to cash them checks. Sterling is the villain here, no doubt, but that doesn't make everyone else to be heroes. Just remember these things when all of these dickbags are trying to take the moral high ground now when they took the money a short time ago over their integrity.
As ugly as this is and will only get worse, this is a fantastic story for a site such as this. Donald Sterling may not have much longer to be an NBA owner, but he will definitely be considered for 2014 Money Shot Man of the Year! If you ask me, these accusations/truths have finally made the NBA playoffs interesting. OMG...with the Spurs and Thunder looking really ordinary so far, couldn't you see the Clippers winning the West and thus have a chance of winning the title? And if they were to, imagine how LOLZ it would be to see Sterling standing at center court with a huge shit-eating grin on his face while holding up the O'Brien Trophy! I want this to happen ASAP!
Game 6 at Nationwide Arena tonight...backs against the wall...do or die...Carry The Flag.
