“Just watched the Commissioner speak about the Sterling Tapes. I have no doubt the @NBA will move swiftly & definitively. However, there IS a history w/ Sterling that is well documented. If the tapes r authenticated there is 0 room in the NBA at ANY level.”

“Hate the man all you want, show him no mercy if you must. But the players who put on that Jersey do it because the love basketball. They want to win for the city of LA, for their families, friends, fans and themselves. Racism isn't born, it's taught. It is the refuge of ignorance and seeks to divide and destroy. The clippers need the people, fans, and city of LA more than ever. The team deserves it.”
