More Proof That Donald Sterling Has No Business As An NBA Owner

As I have said repeatedly, there are three ways of doing things: the right way, the wrong way and the Clipper way.

That belief has once again been reaffirmed by the team's owner, Donald Sterling. Thanks to legal filings obtained by, we know for certain what we all suspected to be true for a long time - Clipper GMs are hamstrung by Sterling's frugality cheapness.

According to former head coach/general manager Mike Dunleavy, "there were several players I wanted to sign and we didn’t because Sterling refused to spend the money. The Clippers' biggest concern was making a profit."

Former general manager and resident Nipsey Russell lookalike Elgin Baylor complained that Sterling was unwilling to adequately pay black players, adding that they "lost a lot of good talent, including Danny Manning, Charles Smith, Michael Cage, Ron Harper, Dominique Wilkins, [Corey] Maggette and others."

Not willing to pay black players?!? It only cements Sterling's reputation as a racist. That might have worked in that hare-brained "whites only" basketball league, but if you try that in the NBA, you're going to have a tough time winning. (Note to Blake Griffin: try going the "cablinasian" route at contract time)
Hey might wanna put a shirt on.

What's that you say? The Clippers are having a tough time winning in the NBA. Oh...carry on then.

Sadly (amusingly?) that's not the strangest thing to come out of the filings. I'm not really sure what to say about it, so I'll let you decide for yourself.

"...players Sam Cassell, Elton Brand and Corey Maggette complained to me that DONALD STERLING would bring women into the locker room after games, while the players were showering, and make comments such as, 'Look at those beautiful black bodies.' I brought this to Sterling’s attention, but he continued to bring women into the locker room." Creepy doesn't even begin to describe it.

Nonetheless, Sterling continues to make money hand over fist presiding over the NBA's worst franchise while the league outbids people who are actually willing to compete. Go figure.
