The list of Donald Sterling's transgressions is long and varied. And today we're hearing of an allegation that… if true… just tops them all. It comes from TrueHoop (via Ball Don't Lie) and is from Elgin Baylor's lawsuit against Sterling:
"While ignoring my suggestions and isolating me from decisions customarily reserved for general managers, the Clippers attempted to place the blame for the team's failures on me," Baylor said in the declaration. "During this same period, players Sam Cassell, Elton Brand and Corey Maggette complained to me that DONALD STERLING would bring women into the locker room after games, while the players were showering, and make comments such as, 'Look at those beautiful black bodies.' I brought this to Sterling's attention, but he continued to bring women into the locker room."
These are, indeed, simply allegations at this point. I suppose someone needs to track down Cassell, Brand and Maggette to see if this is true.
If it is… then whoa. Nothing like a rich white owner showing off his prize pieces of meat. Remind me again what century this is?
