Apparently, Sterling's beliefs haven't been a secret to the NBA. They've known about how he is for years and just left him alone. It's going to be hard for the NBA to just sweep Sterling under the rug now since it's out there. But this story definitely brings back memories of Marge Schott for those of us old enough to remember .
I'll give Doc Rivers and the Clippers players credit for trying to keep their focus on the playoffs. I rarely get surprised about people being racist, sexist, etc anymore, but this Sterling story surprised me. How do you own a team that's dominated by minorities, in a league dominated by minorities, and your girlfriend is a minority and you still can have those stupid beliefs? But the best way for people to let Sterling know how they feel is to refuse to spend a dime on the Clippers as long as he owns the team.
