LA Clippers Stage Silent Protest in Response to Statements By Team Owner

LA Clippers silent protest

While the controversy surrounding racist statements made by the Los Angeles Clippers owner continued to rage, Clippers teammates showed their solidarity by staging a silent protest before game 4 of their 2014 NBA playoffs series last night.

Team members chose not to speak publicly about statements attributed to Donald Sterling. Prior to the opening tip off in game 4 against the Golden State Warriors, they tore off their warm up jackets to reveal red shirts turned inside out to hide their team logo.

Obama calls Donald Sterling comments Offensive

Sterling was caught on tape telling his mixed, biracial girlfriend not to bring black people to his games — including NBA legend Magic Johnson.

Sterling’s girlfriend, Vanessa Stiviano, angered the Octogenarian by posing for a photo with Johnson and posting the image on her public Instagram.com account.

Players also wore black wristbands or armbands. They all wore black socks with their normal jerseys.

“It’s just us, only us. We’re all we got,” Clippers star guard Chris Paul could be heard shouting to teammates before they ran out.

The Warriors’ sellout crowd of 19,596, decked out in gold shirts, booed the Clippers – as they always do – during introductions.

Sterling’s wife, Shelly, was sitting courtside across from the Clippers’ bench. Commissioner Adam Silver had said Donald Sterling would not be at the game.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said before the game that he would remain the only one to speak for the team on this, saying players want to remain focused on basketball. Even he, though, acknowledged that has not been easy since TMZ released the alleged recording of Sterling on Saturday.

“Our message is to play,” Rivers said. “Our message is that we’re going to let no one and nothing stop us from what we want to do. And I think that’s a good message. I really do. I think that’s the message we’re trying to send. And if we can pull this off all the way, I think that would be a terrific message.”

Many believe the Clippers lost game 4 to the Warriors 118-97 — to even the series at 2-2 — in protest over their team owner’s statements.

All of the pre-game posturing by the Clippers is odd considering Sterling’s past history of racial discrimination. Sterling has been sued twice by the federal government for refusing to rent apartment units to blacks and Hispanics.

Didn’t the Clippers know who signed their paychecks?

    OMG! Mister & I had the biggest debate about this yesterday! I said why would the president comment on that? (before we found out he was ASKED about this in a press conference). I was thinking there are other issues that need to be covered. Is he going to go to every state, corporation and tell them how to run their business? Of course, I don’t agree with the owner’s comments.

    She was his “Jezebel” fantasy, He was her “sugar daddy”

    She exposed him for what some people knew he was, others we just saw what we never knew. Good Job mulatto girl :thumbsup:

    Now to the PLAYERS: If these negroes don’t cut the shyt and take a firm stance on this bullshyt here. THIS WAS THE BEST YALL COULD DO?! This is what Dr. King and Malcolm X got popped in the head for?! Medgar Evers and all ah dem? This is the best huh? FUKK A CONTRACT! Yall better start demanding respect and forfeit the massa’s dollars. This shyt is sickening on all kinds of levels!

    And to make matters worse, dude that said all that shyt was said to bring WHITE WOMEN to watch the “Nigras he bought” shower naked and he would describe them as a slave owner to a potential buyer.

    People who say shyt like “Yeah that’s how all of them think” might as well be the 2014 House Nigga. This is blatant disrespect for us, our money and our men. They better come harder. Shyt if our President is speakin on it, it def shows how hard that dude’s words stung.

    2know the ledge excuses are for the weak says:

    them losing and turning the jersey inside out was mute point. not playing the game would have made a bigger statement but this is doing and saying nothing crap is bull. It shows that they will lay down and take anything from anyone. The nba, nfl, and mlb are all racist but the whole trade thing is a modern day slave trade pay attention. the only difference there are no shackles or chains. You get paraded for the masters in suit and tie instead of shackle and chains.

    Money rules everything and these simple ninjas going to keep going for it b/c they sdon’t want to lose these so call millions the masters pay them.

    SOME TEA, IF IT HASN’T been SPILLED ALREADY :coffee:

    As for his girlfriend the mysterious V. Stiviano, we happened to know a few things. V stands for Vanessa, her full name is Maria Vanessa Perez, 38, she also goes by other aliases including Monica Gallegos, Maria Valdez and Vanessa Perez, she met Sterling in February, 2010 at the Super Bowl, they began an affair that same year. two women have referred to Vanessa Perez aka V. Stiviano as their sister Karen Beltran and Grammy Award singer Kay Cola…. Not much is really known about the asian beauty but it is speculated that the reason many people don’t know about her past is because she use to be a man. TO BE CONTINUED….

    Racism aint never interrupted money flow in this country. Might touch it a little bit. But they find away around it dont they? The end of slavery didnt bankrupt the south like they thought. They found away around it. Paula Deen had a tad bit of an interruption but she is slowly getting her endorsements back. The Clippers are valued at 575 MILLION dollars. What this dude said aint gonna interrupt nathan. Spark alot of debate and outrage but thats about it. Whole thing is SAD.

    The President absolutely should have spoken it. Besides being a huge NBA fan, and being asked about it, the NBA (and all professional sports) are ALLOWED A FEDERAL MONOPOLY PROTECTION. Sterling has benefitted from the Government’s PROTECTION, while at the same time discriminated. He bought the Clippers in the 80’s for $12 million dollars. Today, they are valued at $700 million dollars. Some of that is from the federal gov’t protection.

    In the recordings, by definition, he discriminated. So yes, the President had every right to speak on it and I’m glad he did. All this “he got bigger chit to talk about” stuff don’t mean he can’t add his two cents on this.

    What did people want, or expect the players to do? They are trying to win a championship. You only have so many years to do this and out of that time, an even smaller time with a team actually good enough to do it. If you are LUCKY, you have about a 4 or 5 year window to do it.

    Why should they give up that up? The only reason they have made it to the pro’s is because that has been their dream since childhood.

    Plus, I think all of the players, (not just the Clippers) are waiting to see exactly what the NBA does before “acting an azz” about this.

  27. 27
  28. 28

    Hmmmm…. I see both points of “is this what we died for” and “people still got bills to pay.” I actually think the only way you can hurt someone like that is through their pockets. Granted not playing would send a message. I think it bigger than just the players. It’s about the fans/the areana/merchandise. The people who actually buy the tickets. If people either don’t show up for the games or demand refunds (don’t know that they can) it will hit him in the pockets. That’s where he needs to see it. His bottom line. That’s when he’ll feel it. Not care but feel it.
    People are saying he doesn’t have the right to own a team. Yes he does. This is America. Hate it or love it. It is up to the players to CHOSE whether or not they want to play for him. I don’t know contract statuses but I am sure some of the have some leverage. But like someone on the radio said if all of the “big stars” vacate then a lot of lesser knowns who need to make money will gladly step right on up :bball: and play for pennies on the dollar.

    No he doesn’t. All you have to do is read the NBA By-laws. Or the federal Gov’t contract with the NBA to allow them to have monopolies.

    I’m not talking “morals,” I’m talking as a matter of law. He factually does not have the right to own the team. The question is whether anyone will have the guts to force him to sell.

    David Stern (ex Commisish) is GONE as of Feb 2014…and Adam Silver is too new to be pissing off a team OWNER so early in his tenure (David Stern was NBA commissioner almost my whole fuggin LIFE). Adam Silver is also an attorney just like ole [Comment edited for offensive language] Sterling up there. Legally there is not much the NBA can do. We shall see though.

    The NBA as with all other sports organizations that pay taxes to this country in some form or the other have rules they have to follow from the Fed. So I think just like TRAYVON getting shot, he has an obligation to speak on the controversies that affect the nation that he governs.

    Especially if a team such as the Clippers has foreign players that are from nations that are our allies n suck. Just my thought :shrugs: He didn’t get too deep though but it was short n powerful.

    This is too much for me personally. Are they really planning to punish this man in some way for his private statements? On this and every blog that I read people make racist comments pretty much daily. Black, white, Asian, everybody. Should they lose their jobs for that?

    This is too much for me personally. Are they really planning to punish this man in some way for his private statements? On this and every blog that I read people make racist comments pretty much daily. Black, white, Asian, everybody. Should they lose their jobs for that? Ain’t no telling what folk say in the privacy of their own homes to their partners. Sheeeet I’m putting too much into this already. I’ll catch yall in the next post

    “Not really.

    Obama — who called Sterling’s remarks “incredibly offensive” — said he’s confident NBA Commish Adam Silver will do the right thing.

    Again, yes he should. Privacy or not, you have some one under gov’t contract actively discriminating.
    (he instructed her not bring someone to the games subsidized by the gov’t based on the color of their skin)

    On God’s green earth, why would he not speak on that? :huh: Someone they have had to sue in the past no less!

    :facepalm: How disappointing are these comments… :no: <<smh

    So we just going to fly over what dude said and concentrate on the President answering a question. He also commented on Travon and Zimmermna, was he wrong to do that. Like it or not he was asked a question and he answered, If he hit them with a no comment he’d be all kind of uncle toms this morning.

    Problem is I think we got some Uncle Toms in here tho.
    When politicians been restricted on what they can and can’t talk about?

    They been talkin bout rap for over 2 decades… and that’s an art. But Obama should “focus on other stuff” with someone who ACKNOWLEDGED HIS OWN RACIST PRACTICES (when he settled with the gov’t that was his acknowledgment)? wtf?

    They should have forced him out then.

    I’m talking as a matter of law
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    This dude as well as the new NBA Commissioner are lawyers. Dont you think they know some LEGAL loopholes?

    Most people work for a company or corporation that has racist people in it… Sometimes the Minorities are the ones that are racist! Point being these are Professionals, they have worked all season and off season to get to this point. This old man will not stop them from realizing their purpose this season – bring home a ring! I applaude that they KEPT IT PROFESSIONAL while still showing they do not support this man’s thoughts.
