    When you've played a whole season and put yourself in a situation to go to a Championship, you don't let an ignorant guy stand in your way.

    The best way to get even with Sterling would be to win a Championship and not allow him to be apart of the celebration. Trust me, Sterling will be forced to sell the Clippers.

    jsgolfpro: "Sterling is a delusional, narcissistic man...The NBA should force Donald Sterling to sell the Clippers and make sure htat he doesn't ever own a sports franchise in ..." you said America but you obviously don't mean. Actions do have consequences but saying something stupid should not bar you from making a living. In fact, your labeling of Sterling as delusional is offensive and maybe you should be barred from any future employment in America.

    Come on man. Of course he has the right to say stupid, insensitive things. Nobody is trying to take that away, they are just saying that what he said is wrong and totally inappropriate. Why is it that whenever anybody says something offensive and there is backlash, that people cry foul and that the liberals are trying to take away free speech. People can say whatever they want to, but they are not exempt from the consequences or uproar that their comments might create. Sterling is a delusional, narcissistic man who represents the NBA by owning one of its franchises. The NBA should force Donald Sterling to sell the Clippers and make sure that he doesn't ever own a sports franchise in America again.

    As much as I resent what this bigot said, I still would defend his right to say stupid, insensitive things.
    Where is the outrage from the left? It seems to have lost its voice since Sterling is one of their own. I guess it doesn't fit their "Republicans hate minorities" meme.

    Totally disagree. That would be a childish thing to do.

    I credit Doc Rivers with acknowledging that action was discussed and considered. The Team is making a statement that, although they work for Sterling, they do not work FOR him. The play for themselves and their fans. They've worked hard to get where they are right now.

    The proper response, in my opinion, is for everyone who does not have an ironclad contract for next season to leave when they finish playing this year. And no free agents should sign to play for them next year.

    Hit him where it hurts - in the pocketbook.

    These poor, poor millionaires. If they truly wanted to stage a protest, they would refuse to play for the man and refuse any sort of paycheck from him. Now that would make a statement.
