    Hope the skanky bitch looks good in an orange jumpsuit.
    That last line made me laugh out loud.

    Exactly. It's against the law to tape someone without his knowledge. She committed a crime.

    I must be very old fashioned. I could never sleep with an old stinky man just because he's rich. Her career choice in this case was legal prostitution. If I understand old Donny's comments correctly, he also let her sleep around, as long as her partner was white. Did the old pervert watch?

    She may be a rotten person. I still think it incredibly convenient for some to focus on her instead of his behavior in this situation. It's not her fault.

    I also do not like Larry Johnson's comments and think them just as despicable. Nevertheless, the lengths people go to defend Sterling from criticism is rather transparent.

    It's not her fault? She was coerced to commit a crime and push record?

    Damn, I hope the mind control beams don't hit me too.

    When she hit record, was she in control of what his brain was thinking and what the man would say?

    Doesn't matter what he said. The second she hit record, she committed a crime.

    Plus she baited him into that conversation.

    How does it not matter what he said? That was the source of controversy in the first place. Her potentially committing a crime should be noted, but not used in a manner that will diminish the impact and quality of his words.

    It doesn't matter what he said because it's not a crime and is protected speech. The only time it'd matter is if he said, "I'm gonna kill Obama" or "let's go start a riot". I don't care if he said he hates black people, he touches himself to gay porn, or admitted to cheating on his taxes. All of that is LEGAL.

    See where I'm getting at? I guess you support FISA and NSA spying too, right?

    So if he said you can only have sex with black guys with a big penis, that would not matter to you?

    He could say I smell like fetid urine and call me a goat-f'er. He has that right.

    It was the source of controversy in the first place. She may have committed a crime (and maybe not-have to wait) in the process of securing the words, but it was the words themselves from Sterling which started the firestorm in the league. Dismissing that as irrelevant is beyond hilarious.

    In limited amounts.
