Donald Sterling made the Clippers the laughing stock of the NBA for years. He wouldn't resign players, and he wouldn't fork over the cash to compete with the Lakers. But now, after the Clippers drafted the Blake Griffin in 2009. The Clips owner has went all in, and the trade for Chris Paul in 2012 helped that.
Now former Celtics head coach Doc Rivers works for an old racist. I'm not a guy who cares about celebrities, or who reads gossip trash like TMZ. But this was around many NBA sites, and so I listened to the audio, and it wasn't pleasant.
I gather that this guys girlfriend, who seems 50 years younger than Sterling, set him up. This sounded like a private conversation between the ignorant fool and his gold digging lady.
"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?" (3:30)
-- "You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games." (5:15)
-- "...Don't put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games." (9:13)

Doc Rivers thought the grass was greener. But when you have an owner like Sterling. Your not safe from his craziness.
