RE: The NBA Thread
You people think there is any moral high ground in the band of brotherhood of NBA ownership. Its a closed and tight group of 30 people. It does not matter what Adam Silver says publicly, the notion of Sterling having his franchise taken away is non-starter. Sterling for his cheap and racist ways has been with the league a long fucking time and helped build it up. The owners class of every league is protected and they will roll out some slap of the wrist for him in public but do little behind the scenes. Pro Sports has always been a modern version of slavery and you get people like sterling when the Executive and ownership ranks of a sport that is comprised of 80% African-Americans still roughly has only 5% of its executives and owners being Black.

You have a bunch of stuffy rich white guys whom have no idea how to identify with their labor. Some owners make the effort, but many don't, especially the old school guys whom just view the team as a toy and hope that it makes money while enjoying all the DHV perks of it all. The NBA as the most PC league will roll out some big educational package and promo thing that will put new policy for each teams and force the owners to shake their salves/labor hands or some shit like that.

AS far as the Clippers team goes. I am not sure how and what they can do. The man pays you millions and the more you undermine your owner the more chaos you being to the whole organization which can affect your team and then in the end ... your money. This situation shows how much of a slave trade pro sports is because many of the players can't do shit. They can say all they want but they realistically are hand tied as the league will handcuff them, and action as I noted will actually do more harm then good since it undermines the business/team.

Had this discussion with my brother, about how the Clips would be affected by this. Baron Davis talked about what it was like playing for Sterling:

Baron Davis on Donald Sterling: He Called Me a ‘Bastard’


Those were Baron Davis's worst years as well (granted, he was older, but he really underperformed in LA).

On the surface, the NBA shouldn't be able to do much about a recording of a private conversation provided by some gold-digging ho who likely tried to blackmail the dude to not release the tape. This is the logical argument. But there is a subtlety to this discussion, and it lies in the fact that this guy, on one end, hates black people, and believes in his heart that he employs them, and they are somehow indebted to him.

Quote:I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have—Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?

It's humiliating and demeaning to play for someone who believes they both own you and despise you. The parallels to slavery are too stark.

Sterling would bring women into the locker room to gaze at his players' "beautiful black bodies."

Baron Davis admits he was affected by that, and I think the same may happen to multiple players on the Clips. They should also be pissed at the bitch for releasing it now, and not after the Clips were done for the year.

At the very least, this is a huge distraction for them, in the playoffs no less. I hope they can look past it soon enough and down the Warriors.

Who is the ho that released the audio? I believe that what is said in private shouldn't be held against you. But that didn't work out well with Paula Deen and others. But at the same time the guy sounds really obnoxious and is arguments aren't coherent.

Do you think his comments were really directed at Magic? I don't at all.

Sterling has a long standing relationship with Magic, has invited Magic into his home and country clubs tons of times. Magic even said that Sterling has consulted with Magic on ways to improve the Clippers.

One thing that the media has totally ignored is that this bitch's head is more hollow than a coconut. Listening to her speak and attempt to make rationalizations was literally like listening to a 3 year old. At no point did Sterling ever acknowledge anything she said--when she'd repeat her self he'd get annoyed and change the subject.

Sterling's point was that there was a group of people she gets attention from that he didn't want her to associate with and bring to games, and in Sterling's mind, Magic isn't part of that. It was irrelevant that Sterling said don't bring Magic to my games because if Magic wants to sit courtside at a Clippers game, he's calling Sterling directly, not going through this bitch. The problem was that this bitch kept trying to paraphrase and throw "what ifs" at Sterling, and it was telling in how Sterling was perpetually losing patience that he didn't want to put the effort in explaining that Magic is ok and others are not. But it's hard to fully grasp the context of what Sterling meant without seeing the instagram pics of the other people he was referring to. If they were well-dressed and well-mannered men, then Sterling is an absolute racist prick. But if they were tatted up with gold teeth and dressed like idiots, then I can understand. At the end of the day he has a business and an image to maintain, and he doesn't want some skank to tarnish it. I give Sterling a slight benefit of the doubt here because judging by how dumb that bitch is I can only wonder what kind of neighborhood she grew up in and the type of company she keeps.

Another thing that irks me about the media is the "people who live in glass houses don't throw stones" analogy. Do all the media members hold absolutely holly opinions in all aspects of their lives? Have they never in their life said that certain ethnicities don't tip well? Do the players and former players who lashed out at Sterling all have 100% PC opinions? Have none of them ever made a comment about someone else in regards to race or sexual orientation? You can't go around making fag jokes in the locker room everyday and then complain when someone else has ignorant opinions about you.

Lastly, there is no mention of the pending 1.8 million dollar lawsuit that Sterling has against this bitch. Not one media member has called this bitch out on extortion. The guy who attempted to extort David Letterman out of $2 million got 6 months in jail, yet what are the chances this bitch sees a jail cell?

She looks like the typical trashy hood hoe slut gold digger. I'm sure she's a hot fuck as all crazy bitches are but she's too much fucked up in the head to get involved with.

Edit: she could easily pass for a ladyboy.

Yes VP a great future, except unfortunately as soon as a players contract is up in Toronto, they run for the hills. Hopefully making the play offs for the first time in a while will change that.

zZzZzZzZzZz.

Another media-engendered "controversy."

Black talking heads and "celebrities" get to act indignant and sanctimonious, and white talking heads and "celebrities" get to self-flagellate to show that they're The Right Kind of white people.

They don't actually care that much if Sterling is racist or not (and neither do I), but it's just another opportunity to posture and signal.

Maybe if we're lucky we'll get a quote from Obama about how racism still exists and how we as a nation need to think deeply about it, or something to that effect.

And that chick is trash. Zero to negative class. Oscillates from looking like a tranny to hot-ish, picture to picture.

This was obviously a gold-digger scheme pulled off by this well-coached ghetto ho. If you read the transcript of what has been released, you can very clearly see the way she's baiting him and trying to get the right answers, and he fell for it.

It's also amusing watching all the self-rightous people coming out with their universal condemnation. Let's record some of your conversations and see what comes out of it. The whole freaking non-story has become a national/international emergency.

And the ho in the middle of it all looks like a tranny with one too many surgeries.

Toronto has played excellent D to close out the last 2 games, especially against the pick and roll. The Nets will bounce back and win the series however. One of DWill/Johnson/Pierce has to be more aggressive going to the paint in the last 6 minutes. Joe Johnson has to go into "poor man's Kobe Bryant mode, and start working that elbow post-up/turnaround game.

This is what I think. I'm black and the first the that came to my mind was" "She set him up" The dude probably didnt give her enouh money or whatever or just was getting tired of her shit(or refused to marry her) so she decided to ruin him.

Only a woman does shit like this. This bitch was pretty much on the fastlane to being set for life, Just for having a Vagina, a decent body and giving it up to a rich dude.

Instead her hamster brain fucks it up, instead of taking tha tmoney, investing it in some assets that will KEEP her set in the event that he does get tired of her/she gets too old.

All the older women I know are cheering for her (while inside laughing at her for fucking up such a good thing) This chick is done, She may get a little bit of money from the fallout but really now everyone else knows her name, and another rich guy will never touch that girl ever again.

A lot of people don't know but Rich dudes routinely trade their "girlfriends" around a lot. Basically if a hot ass girl hooks up with a rich dude, who's as well connected as this guy was, pretty much she becomes a high class escort to other rich dudes. They get cars, money, clothes etc, and just have to look hot, not ruin their men and fuck. that's all. (Seattle is a hotbed of this)

Basically, she really didn't screw him over, he's rich and his assets are at the point where he , his children, his great great grandchildren can do nothing and be rich for the rest of their lives. This woman on the other hand not only ruined it for herself, but also other women who want to hook up (or already do hook up) rich rich men as a business.

Is this guy a racist? Does it matter? Does he pay his players, Does he provide jobs? yes and yes. . .so what does his views have to do with anything? Sure if he discriminated aggainst blacks in hiring and stuff that may be an issue, but that's obviously not the case. soo really I could care less. . .

I've met ssome racist bosses...that STILL hired me. I've also had some racist managers that didn't like me becasue I was black. . . .so I quit and found a different job . . . this is 2014, and this race stuff is just getting played out. Some people will be racist, period. This is anywhere in the world. . . .people just need to get over it, that's just not going to change. As long as we can all make money as best we can, without restrictions based on race then it's all good.

Someone earlier said tha tthe NBA is like slavery. . .

No way. .. these guys make enouhg money every year to be set for life if they invest their money right. What they need to do during the off season is hire someone to help them grow their money perpetually so that when they retire they can get rich and richer. . .

i.e. Magic Johnson. . .when magic was playing the salaries were not as rediculous as you see now. Magic has grown his money and he's nearly on par with the "30 owners" now. So no. Not slavery at all. That's just a silly argument.

You're kidding, right?

He is 79 years old. He is so rich that his wife of 50 years literally doesn't care that he has a public mistress.

Compare this girl to Zuckerberg's wife. You guys do realize that she's probably 40, not 22.

Hell, I'd approach her if I saw her out and would be non-the-wiser. Then I'd make her lend me the Ferrari.

RE: The NBA Thread
Rumor mill in LA is that Rochelle Sterling is getting power of attorney to run the Clippers. (Did anyone else think it was odd that she was courtside solo today?) That way the NBA won't have to take the awkward position of having to force the sale of the team. Too many legal implications involved. The Clippers are now easily worth $1 billion.

Also, there are more tapes that could be released.

The mistress is being sued by Rochelle Sterling for return of "community property" because Donald Sterling gave the mistress a $1.8 million condo, Ferrari, Bentley, and a Range Rover. Mistress has the title free and clear in her name. The release of the tapes is the revenge.

The truth of all of this is that this tape or any of this would not have gotten out if Sterling's wife had not sued the girl for all the gifts that Donald gave her. This was cold hard revenge on the Groupie's part to make that lawsuit go away and as a "fuck you" to Sterling's wife. Donald is merely collateral damage. These groupies are cold blooded, you mess with them you'll get your fingers chewed off.

Sterling's wife stuck her nose in a man's business in a man's world. This is the result. He said what he said, but who doesn't say fucked up shit in private conversations, I know I do.

I deal with these types daily in Beverly Hills and they have no foresight nor do they have any common sense.
