Donald Sterling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Donald Sterling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

 "On April 26, 2014, the team held a meeting to discuss the incident. Both coaches and players expressed anger toward the comments and they briefly raised the possibility of boycotting Game 4 of their series against the Golden State Warriors on April 27, 2014 before deciding against it.[45] Instead, players protested Sterling's remarks by wearing their shirts inside-out in order "to obscure any team logo".[46] The next day, April 28, 2014, players of the Miami Heat wore their uniform tops inside-out to show solidarity with the Clippers. LeBron James commented on the situation saying, "There's no room for Donald Sterling in the NBA. There is no room for him". The owner of the Miami Heat, Micky Arison, also called the allegations “appalling, offensive and very sad".[47] NBA's Kevin Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kobe Bryant also condemned Sterling's remarks.[48][49] Donald Trump stated his opinion that Sterling was set up by Stiviano,[50] while filmmaker Spike Lee said Sterling had the "mentality of a slave master. [Sterling] sees his players as slaves."[51]"
