LAST NIGHT, ALL THE NBA GUYS WERE WEARING BLACK SOCKS IN SOLIDARITY AGAINST THE RACIAL FIRESTORM FROM CLIPPERS OWNER DONALD STERLING
Love how the guys did stood together on this. All this racist garbage has no place in the NBA or anywhere. Here's a few comments from various celebs:
Michael Jordan: "As an owner, I'm obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views . . . as a former player, I'm completely outraged . . . "In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level."
LeBron James: "If the reports are true, it's unacceptable in our league. It doesn't matter if you're white, black, Hispanic, whatever, all across the races . . . there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league, man. There it is."
Former Clippers guard Baron Davis: "That's the way it is . . . he's honest about what he believes in. Been going on for a long time, hats off to the team for playin' above it all."
Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who's African American: "I didn't like the comments. I'm going to tell you now . . . we had a great team meeting this morning about it. A lot of guys voiced their opinions. None of them were happy about it. "[But] we're trying to go after something very important for us, something we've dreamed about all of our childhoods . . . we're not going to let anyone get in the way of those dreams."
President Obama: "When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything. You just let them talk. That's what happened here .
Lil Wayne: "[Eff] you. That simple. That easy. If I was a Clipper fan, I wouldn't be one anymore . . . If I was a current Clipper player, you wouldn't see me on the court anymore in that uniform. Pride and respect is not a team sport."
Snoop Dogg posted an Instagram video, saying, quote, "A message to the mother[effer] that owns the Clippers: 'You [B-word]-ass, redneck, white-bred chicken-[crap] mother[effer], [eff] you, your mama, and everything connected to you, you racist piece of [crap]. [Eff] you.'" (Here's the UNCENSORED video.)
Former Suns guard, and current mayor of Sacramento, Kevin Johnson said the players want a say in how the league handles Sterling . . . and they want the NBA to go after him HARD.
At this point, it seems like if they go on trying to win the playoff series, it just increases value for Sterling. I cant see how any of these guys could muster up any enthusiasm to want to win on this team.
Its a good time to be a free agent.
There's at least a few players that should talk to Mark Cuban, no?
