I felt the original tape was missing something, and now I know what: a Godwin.
 
2014-04-27 08:33:51 PM  
Anyone pointed out that he is a democrat yet? Apparently that is important ...
 
2014-04-27 08:34:13 PM  
He hates the jews.
 
2014-04-27 08:49:59 PM  
How many people were recording him?
 
2014-04-27 09:08:57 PM  
I don't see any way out of this for him but to sell the team.   The NBA is the only sports league where the majority of viewers are black, and he's just made himself a pariah very publicly, not to mention all of the people of other races who will boycott due him coming out as a major asshat.

That Donald Sterling is racist scumbag is not what you could call earthshattering, hold the presses sort of news.  The evidence has been there for years from conversations had with him and fellow owners, from his openly deriding and shouting racist remarks to members of the team he owned, from his not so subtle efforts to get around fair housing restrictions, up to the shabby and meretricious recordings being reacted to in faux shock and horror by people who knew all about Sterling.  The thing is, his fellow owners allowed him into the club and now they have to figure a way short of paying for a team of hitmen.  fark them.  Channeling the Airplane, "they paid for their tickets and knew what they were getting into" meme, they knew what they were getting into, let the league die.

Wow. I swear this guy sounds high.
 
2014-04-27 10:45:38 PM  
He's old like Cliven Bundy and Phil Robertson.  Therefore it's not real racism for some reason.

They both sound like immature 8-year-olds, so I'm not surprised that the H-word got thrown around.

For anyone who said they were waiting for the full clip for context:

When's the last time a seemingly racist/bigoted celebrity/rich person clip turned out NOT racist/bigoted once the full context was heard?

No, he sounds old and raspy. If he was high he'd probably be more tolerant of black people. Because pot always makes everybody more friendly.

HawgWild: Anyone pointed out that he is a democrat yet? Apparently that is important ...


That would have been the right party for him to register at 18.  This just shows he was too lazy to change it, which is true for many, there's no other explanation for most Southern states still having more registered Democrats than Republicans.

My grandpa is 73 and he hates jews and laughs when they die.

I'd say these lines are the real story here that nobody is talking about, no?

I find it funny that Sterling got Mel Gibson'd (getting set up by a skank ho) and the cause of Mel Gibson's original rant was the Sterling's of the world.

anyone notice what an ugly slut his gold-digging gf is?
 
2014-04-28 12:05:57 AM  
Some of those comments are just amazing. Even after hearing that some people are still holding steady with the claim that she set him up, the tape was edited or she led him into the conversation. It is amazing how people will go out of their way to defend a racist.

I think she's attractive, if a bit overdone.  I do find it odd that she's bi-racial black/Hispanic (of Mexican heritage) and he's made plenty of racist comments about Mexicans as well.

I don't even understand that argument as a defense.  She could come right out and state, "I intentionally set this up and led him into this conversation," and it wouldn't change any of what he said.

I suppose adding "that don't involve Andrew Breitbart" at this point would be moving the goalposts, wouldn't it?

I don't think the NBA has much time. They need to do something tomorrow or Game 5 in L.A. could be a disaster in waiting.
 
2014-04-28 12:34:53 AM  
I dont think the NBA wants the team to fail yet. Squeak by golden State then get real anger towards Sterlings team going for the next round. I expect death threats and everything from the fans. This is a golden moneymaker for NBA playoffs.

I don't think it's the NBA's place to do anything.  He owns the team, unless there's a morality clause in the ownership contract (or something like that) that gives him legal ground to stand on to oust an owner, he's free to be an assbag and continue to own the team.

The fans could definitely boycott though, and the team could refuse to take the court or just throw the game, which would bring up some interesting scenarios.

If his hand is going to be forced it will have to come from the fans or team itself.

I love the cynicism. I'll credit you with this idea when that happens.

owning a nba team is like owning a condo, you may think you own the place, but the hoa can dictate what you can and can't do.  i'm pretty sure the nba doesn't want to be known as the hoa that's cool with racist shiattards living in the building.

The NBA could free all the players and coaches from their contracts. That would be a start. If the NBA does absolutely nothing before the next game, they risk an incident in the arena and they will be the ones responsible for it because they did nothing to mitigate it.

If that's true (and maybe it is) that surprises me. I hate everyone equally.

FTFC:

It's worth noting here that this is just further proof that nobody EVER thinks they're actually a racist. Even in the middle of this giant crazy racist rant Sterling still makes time to be faux-offended at the suggestion that he's a racist.
And it's not like he thought he was being recorded, otherwise he wouldn't have said allllll the rest of this. He wasn't trying to cover his ass, he really doesn't think he's a racist. Because no racists ever do. Cliven Bundy doesn't think he's a racist either. Frazier Glenn Cross is absolutely sure he's not a racist.
 
2014-04-28 01:15:39 AM  
so who did leak the tape if she's denying it now?  she should be proud to knock this motherf*cker down.

and why are we focused on her (calling her a gold-digging slut) so much?  who put a f*cking gun to his head and made him buy her multiple luxury cars and her million-dollar apartment?   i swear to jesus, no matter how old a man f*cking gets, his dick will always rule his life, get him in trouble but the girls get blamed.  none of you are worth it.  no dick is that good.  but pussy will make you want to destroy your lives.  men are stupid and this man is their king.

If the NBA has language in their ownership agreements like say McDonald's or Subway have with their franchise owners, they could potentially just take the team away for an owner harming the image of the league. If a McDonald's franchise owner is found to be messing around on things that would make McDonald's look bad, corporate will come down on them hard. And yes taking away the franchise is on the table. If the NBA has such language in their ownership agreement, they could potentially just take the team away from Sterling and sell it to someone else for any price they care to sell it for. If the NBA took over the team they could sell it for $1 if they wanted. Which were I in charge and the language were in place to do it, it's what I'd do. Take the team and sell it for $1. Preferably to a black man.

Bundy, Sterling.

What's in the water out West this week?
Oh right, there IS no water.

Take away the franchise and sell it to Magic Johnson.

Best interest of Basketball.  Wasn't that the same reason they gave for nullifying the Chris Paul to LA deal?
 
2014-04-28 03:00:18 AM  
Gosh, if only there were an ownership group that has offered to buy a bunch of teams recently...a city that once loved NBA basketball and would love it again, especially with a relevant team...

Nope, guess we need to continue to let a racist who has, for the most part, put no effort into competently running a team for decades, have a team!
 
2014-04-28 03:18:08 AM  
But he said he didn't want to fight, so it's not racist
