Tweet of the Night: Magic Johnson addresses rumors about him looking to buy the Los Angeles Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has done quite a job to shake up the entire NBA family over the past weekend with the now-infamous comments filled with hate towards African Americans. The league is still in the process of investigating the authenticity of recordings that have been exposed by TMZ – recordings that reveal Sterling’s comments on not wanting black people at his games. There aren’t enough words to explain just how ridiculously stupid and ignorant those comments are, and


Schayes: Donald Sterling Is a Schmuck; But We Already Knew That


With the explosive headlines being splattered all over the place this weekend concerning Clippers owner Donald Sterling, the thing that surprises me is that people are surprised. Under his ownership, The Clippers have been the doormat of the league for 30 years. He has paid millions of dollars in fines to settle race discrimination suits before in his other businesses. Every star player who ever played for him has fled screaming for the hills at the first opportunity. He flaunts his


Bernucca: Silver vs. Sterling Not About Black or White, but Green


NBA commissioner Adam Silver cannot just suspend Clippers owner Donald Sterling for the rest of the playoffs. Silver cannot just suspend Sterling for a year and drop a seven-figure fine on him the way his predecessor did to Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor in 2000. Taylor broke the rules. Sterling broke the game. Silver has no choice but to suspend Sterling indefinitely, as in until he sells his team. And when Silver suspends Sterling, it is important that anyone and everyone with an opinion on


Tweet of the Night: Wizards owner speaks out on Sterling


In the midst of one of the best opening rounds in NBA playoff history, this weekend was marred by the alleged cruel words of shamed Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. There isn’t much use in rehashing Sterling’s comments, but if you have not read the coverage and are trying to play catch up you can find them here. While this put a serious black mark on a weekend set up for marvelous basketball — which we still did get, by the way


Hubbard: In Dealing with Sterling, Silver Should Overdo It

Donald Sterling

In what surely would be a failed attempt at objectivity, I searched the Internet to see if there was any way I could give Donald Sterling the benefit of the doubt. I have to admit I was giggling at the premise. Sterling has a long and glorious history of idiocy, so any attempt to paint him as a party wronged in his current racist controversy — or, in fact, any of his controversies — would be spectacularly futile. But miracle of miracles,


Tweet of the Night: Brandon Rush thinks Stephen Curry was fouled by Chris Paul on the game-winner attempt


“That’s my go-to move, the step back. I’m not going to air ball that.” That’s what Stephen Curry had to say about the final shot he took – the shot that was about a foot short from the rim – against the Los Angeles Clippers in a 98-96 loss in Game 3 of the first round of the playoffs. With time winding down and the Golden State Warriors desperately trying to get back into the game, Curry took over in the final


VIDEO: Will the Referees Let the Clippers and Warriors play?

Joey Crawford

Through two days of NBA playoff games, we have seen some horrendous officiating. Blake Griffin basically got benched by the refs in Game 1 of the Warriors-Clippers series. Dwight Howard picked up his 6th foul late in last night’s Blazers-Rockets game on an egregiously bad call. Four players ended up with DQs in that game, which lasted a ghastly 3:21, featured 65 fouls and made quite a few East Coast viewers a little less productive today at their jobs. Is this what


Heisler: ‘Clipper Time’ in L.A. at last … Well, for a Moment There it Was


LOS ANGELES — It’s Clipper time, at last, in L.A., or was. No. 3 seeds in the Western draw, with the town to themselves, at last, after finishing 30 games ahead of their cross-town rivals, the former Lakers, the Clippers had it all going for them, at last… Well, at least until they tipped off Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors, who didn’t have Andrew Bogut although they supposedly did have all sorts of internal issues, who nevertheless held themselves together long
