    Portland lost, but man that was a great game again.

    What's going on in the first round games?

    It has to do something with L.A., Boston, and N.Y. Not being in the playoffs.

    Guys I'm thinking of buying a NASCAR track and then not inviting any white people.

    I find it hilarious he doesn't want Magic Johnson at his game. He does realize if it wasn't for Magic(and Larry Bird....), he wouldn't be the owner of the LA Clippers.

    I'd hope that at least a handful of players speak out.

    What's lost in all this is that they're regarding TMZ as a real news source . . .

    But if it is true, yeah . . . Stupid.

    Is there an NBA franchise in all of history with a more schizophrenic mix of spectacular success--three championships--and utterly infuriating losses--0.4, Manu's Foul, Ray Allen, this--in a ten year period? God.

    Sad thing is, would this story have blown up the way it has (all the way up to the President commenting on it now), if the Clippers were the Clippers of old and being prennial locks for draft lottery picks instead of having a playoff game this afternoon?

    Pre-game:

    The players are also wearing black arm/wristbands during the game... all very nice, a good way to show their disgust & anger. However, you know what would have been nicer? A boycott. Sometimes something drastic should occur, and what would be more drastic than that?

    If you're able to read this post right now, turn on the Clips-Warriors game.

    It. is. amazing.

    It's almost like the Clips are boycotting without boycotting!

    PS - It should be noted that while the tapes are bad there, thus far, is not indication they are true. I personally think they are but until they are verified we should probably hold off on excoriating Sterling for this. Doing it for the previous decades of racism, though, is totally fine!

    This broad isn't innocent either, but it doesn't give the owner any excuse for his racist beliefs.

    Apparently Sterling's wife was at the game and had a brief off-camera interview with ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters.

    Yeah I am calling her out in a negative light. Maybe I'm wrong and she is totally in love with this man and it isn't about the money. I'm sure she didn't know he was married either.

    as entertaining as this first round has been, i'm getting a little worried that all the teams that everyone thought could beat the heat are going to be done in the first round.

    I guess I was questioning the rather unnecessarily misogynistic name-calling (is misogyny ever really necessary?). Without a doubt, she has made some questionable choices in her life, but none of us know her story, do we? What I do know is that she is a person, not a "broad".
