You guys hear about Sterling's comments on minorities?

Disgraceful. David West tweet summed it up the best:

David West @D_West30 8h

Sterling basically articulated Plantation Politics...Make money off the Bucks/Lay with the Women/No Association in Public good or bad

Durant and Westbrook 11-45 combined and OKC still won. :no:

Btw wtf is up with Kidd Gildchrist's shooting form? So awkward

Key part: “Why are you taking pictures with minorities? Why?” Stiviano, who is of black and Latin heritage, replies: “People call you and tell you that I have black people on my Instagram, and it bothers you?” Sterling: “Yeah, it bothers me a lot that you want to promo… broadcast that you’re associating with black people.”

Wow, ridiculous! :doh:

How can such a stupid human being be allowed to own a Basketball franchise (of all sports)...

They had bad games, (again) but this time somebody stepped up and started making shots, happy with the win yesterday, will probably go 7 games anyway. I doubt KD will have 3 straight poor shooting performances, and honestly, i just want this series to be over. It's painful playing against the Grizzles, even from the couch!

What a series Dallas-Spurs is shaping up to be,, Honestly should be 3-0 Mavs, if only they didn't bottle it in the first game. Hate those spurs, sooner their out the better. Although i think OKC vs Spurs is a better match-up for us than vs Mavs. The phrase about the playoffs being about match-ups couldn't be more honest than this post-season here. Teams got matched up with thier equals across the board, and it's showing as every series goes to 2-2/2-1 (Bar Wizards and Heat). Best post-season in years honestly.

Raptors of course!

Also cheering for some upsets, especially Memphis and Dallas. Memphis cause I dont like OKC much and Dallas because of my all time favourite player, Vince Carter.

People shouldn't be surprised about the Spurs, father time is catching up to their foundation.

Once Duncan retires, you can bet both Manu and Pop to retire as well.

Good.

Yes and NO....

He was setup. People in Los Angeles already know about his racial tendencies, this isn't real big news. However, with this decision from Adam Silver, now people are going to look to potentially blackmail others, etc. There is even some rumors that Magic Johnson was in on this so he could purchase the Clippers...

Take into consideration the person that recording this tape was his gold digger girlfriend, not a random innocent person.

I don't really care about the politics behind it all, it's just a disgrace in my opinion that someone as racist as him is even associated with the NBA.

It might've been a setup, it might've not, but frankly I don't really care. He's scum and it's good that he's out of the NBA, and if it leads to more idiots that think like him being exposed then good.

Racism is a lot more difficult than you think, especially in the United States.

Racism is all over corporate america, schools, etc. Just because Sterling makes a racists comments, doesn't mean other people do not have racial tendencies even though they don't say it. You may be the exception, but I can guarantee in the United States most people are racists to a degree. They don't have other people record their racist comments, however, most people are, they might not think they are racists, but they still have racist tendencies.

I'll give you a perfect example of racism in the United States, ala affirmative action. When I was in high school, three of us apply to UVA for college. Three of us had similar sat scores, gpas, extracurricular crap and two of played sports. However, he was spanish and we were not. Guess who got into UVA and he didn't even apply early decision? Technically, this is racism at it's best. However, if racism work's to your advantage, it is not racism to you.

That's why racism, especially here is a lot more difficult to overcome than you think. People all grow up from different upbringing, different cultures, etc. Sterling is 80 years old. You know the saying, "you can teach an old dog new tricks." its kind of like Sterling. He is too old to change, doesnt mean he right, however, changing the mindset of an 80 year old man is quite the task.
