    Yeah, he's a pretty classic antebellum racist who embraces all the racial stereotypes. It's not that he doesn't want to consort with them, but that he wants them to occupy certain racial roles. He thinks blacks are athletically superior, so he wants black athletes and he's leary about a white guy being able to compete. I'm betting his tax accountant, on the other hand, is not black. He'd probably prefer a Jew to do that work.

    New Los Angeles Clippers CEO will be Richard Parsons, who in recent years was chairman of Time Warner and Citicorp, CNN has learned.

    Donald Sterling purportedly says jealousy behind racist comments

    Donald Sterling tells Anderson Cooper: 'I'm asking for forgiveness'

    {Excerpt airing pregame on TNT}

    The people that will decide my fate I think are not the media and not the players union but the NBA.

    The owners?

    The owners. If the owners feel I deserve another chance, then they'll give it to me.

    There is a path for you to fight their decision, isn't there?

    Of course. If you fight with my partners, what at the end of the road, what do I benefit, especially at my age? If they fight with me and they spend millions and I spend millions, let's say I win or they win, I just don't know if that's important.

    And:

    She's delusional... a non controller owner even if she was one has no power over this situation.

    If she was Donald Sterling's adopted jewish princess I would of defended him. Require counselling for the stupid stuff he said. I was holding out for that. When he admitted to using her for sex I changed my mind.

    Ya but NBA players saying "We want what is right" by wanting Shelly Sterling out. Guilt by association is a dangerous thing. If it were 2 business partners and 1 partner said some racist things why should the other partner suffer? How is it "right" by having Shelly Sterling removed?

    I understand from NBA owner contract perspective, the NBA reserves the right to remove anyone associated with ownership of a team by virtue of 75% league-wide owners voting for it. But that doesn't mean it's "right". What a bunch of BS for lebron and other players to say that.

    What is "right" for the NBA is what makes the NBA the most money. If Shelly Sterling staying in place doesn't cost the NBA money-- in terms of sponsors, ticket sales, TV rights negotiation and CBA negotiations-- they would let her stay.

    It's not the NBA deciding whether she is guilty by association, it's the "marketplace" of the NBA's various business partners making the decision.

    Also, let's not pretend that Mrs. Sterling had no association with racial bias. See here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...to-have-made-racist-statements-too/?tid=hp_mm

    In the end, the NBA is free to do what it wants within contractual limits as a private business and it (i.e., the other 29 owners) likely don't want to deal with her.

    She's not a majority or active owner

    She's not the one who was voted into the association

    She is associated with him who could easily be running things through her

    She is a racist as well as he is, and she was defending him then when it got heated she tried to say she isnt with him. The lady has become a walking contradiction in itself.

    She's co consipered with him in the past so there is no doubt she'd do it now


    I mean I could go on, but honestly she has little to ground to stand on here. Right now she's nothing but a distraction and desperate but it's too late. Donald's antics have caught up with him, and when you fall you shake the ground around you.

    This is going to be tough. Who does Sterling think he is, he's not in any position to say anything about Magic, regardless if it's remotely true or not..
