Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
– “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” (3:30)
– “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games.” (5:15)
– “I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.” (7:45)
– “…Don’t put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.” (9:13)
Not only is Clippers owner Donald Sterling a disgusting racist, but he’s also delusional and hypocritical. I don’t understand how a man who processes thoughts in this manner can run an NBA franchise.
Someone needs to stand up to this bigot. David Stern turned a blind eye to Sterling’s racist behavior for decades. Adam Silver must do something, anything to get this franchise out of his hands.
How can Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the rest of the Clippers tolerate this behavior? Have they no principles? Where’s the statement from the players union?
You might think I’m being unfair to Doc, but he knew full well what he was getting into when he sought out the Clippers. Plus, I’m not the only one questioning Doc’s judgement:
i am, however, curious about the calculus doc rivers used to decide he was willing to work for sterling. that’s a little different.

How about the girlfriend asking Sterling; “Would it be better if it was Larry Bird?”
Even Legend gets lumped into this mess.
On Page 2, KG was kinda sorta fired up last night in Brooklyn.
Watch the first two clips in this highlight reel for some Truth and Ticket.
F-Brooklyn is up 2-1.
