Sterling has expressed his displeasure about Davis’ play by taunting him from his courtside seat at Clippers’ home games, several sources told Yahoo! Sports. Among Sterling’s verbal barbs:
– “Why are you in the game?”
– “Why did you take that shot?”
– “You’re out of shape!”
While Sterling has also taunted other Clippers players since the middle of last season, none have received it worse than Davis, the sources said. Davis has missed 14 of the team’s 25 games this season and is averaging 7.4 points while making a team-high $13 million. Including this season, Davis has three years and nearly $42 million left on his contract.
I just want to take a moment to praise whatever higher power is responsible for the ownership group we have here. I can't imagine Wyc doing anything like this.
Heckling your own players? I don't care if they are slacking. I don't care how bad they look. Get up, walk to the back, and blast them in private.
Public humiliation? That's bushleague. I don't know how this guy is allowed to own an NBA franchise. He's an embarrassment to the league.
