    You did.

    But at least they felt good about their message. And they will feel better when they deposit the big paychecks that mean old man gives them.
    Your insinuation was clear.

    What do the players have to do with this? Why are you making this about them?

    Ah yes, the new message. Black athletes complaining about a bigoted owner should tear up the paychecks they earned so they can play for free.

He knew that his racism couldn't be made public because it would hurt his business, so he kept it private, and he got caught.

    I don't feel sorry for the man. Everyone has a right to say what they may, but that does not free them of the consequences.
    I don't feel sorry for him either, the guy has billions of dollars. I only feel for him for the fact that everyone in the country is discussing what he said in the privacy of some venue with his lady friend. I'm not a big fan of people's private conversations becoming public fodder.

    I also don't care what his opinions on people of any kind are. The guy is pretty entrenched in a sports world filled with a larger than normal per capita black population. He seems to be a walking contradiction. If he doesn't care for black people, he should have bought the LA Kings instead. He shouldn't be surprised that there are black people coming to his games.

    Nope, they should just play and be glad the old fool pays them what he does. And for their own sanity, it would be best for them to find another team to play for next year.

    Why not? They keep getting brought up. Am I not allowed to comment on them?

    No.

    If the old fool actually keeps his team, the old fool should be glad.

    He won't care. He'll retire rich and move on. And this will set a wonderful trend where everyone's personal conversations will be analyzed and everyone will be scrutinized for what they say and do in private.

    I can imagine what you say in private...

    I don't go to basketball games and I don't watch them on TV, but I know that a lot of black people play and are interested in basketball, so I am a little surprised that Mr. Sterling, whose girlfriend is half- black and half-Mexican, would say this.

    It will be interesting to see what the NBA has to say about this.
    I have heard the NBA may force him to sell his team. It would serve him right. If Black basketball players are the ones keeping him wealthy, the least he could do is speak kindly of them.
