I saw that story earlier.
I don't really see the cases becoming interesting. NBA employees sign contracts. Once they violate it, they can be fired. That guy already has another job.

Since it is a "private" entity, they can pretty much do whatever.

Dude probably said something along the lines of "I was not able to be in every meeting so I chose to record them to review later."

Pro sports are known for giving 2nd chances.

Also, does this mean they will be going after the Magic b/c they are owned by avowed homophobes? How about a lifetime ban for every player who beats a women? Kidd?

meh.

He's really talking about the players here. You've got a bunch of black guys from poor backgrounds working a physical job for incredibly wealthy white guys. It's a racially charged environment, and Sterling broke the seal.

Apparently the players were seriously considering a strike. That would be pretty disastrous for the NBA product.

Holy fucking shit!

LOL at the thought of mayweather even approaching the NBA on purchasing a share of the Clippers. That's exactly what they need. Oust one racist for another.

Holyshit grizzlies might actually beat okc

Mavs might actually beat spurs

Golden state might actually beat clipper

Portland will definitely beat the rockets

Nets will probably beat raptors

Hawks will probably beat pacers

Wizards already beat bulls

Holy shit. Playoffs first round so fucking good this year

I don't remember playoffs ever being this close and contested

Every match up besides cats and heats have been incredible

Fucking nene holy shit who knew he was this good. Completely trashed defensive player of the year

This. I think everyone's done their piling on, lets move on. This is just an old jew protecting his public image on tape. Who cares? There's been worse. How about Rodman and Isiah v Larry Bird and many others.

Michael Irvin on Tony Romo – “He doesn’t look like he’s that type of an athlete. But he is. He is, man. I don’t know … some brother down in that line somewhere … I don’t know who saw what or where, his great-great-great-great-grandma ran over in the ‘hood or something went down.”

In Spain they can't seem to stop throwing bananas at the soccer players.

Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao, calling him a “yellow chump” plus “motherfucker to make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice”

Zoeller v Tiger Woods: "You pat him on the back and say congratulations and enjoy it and tell him not to serve fried chicken next year. Got it? Or collard greens or whatever the hell they serve.”

Barkley on TNT on the high horse? What about “This is why I hate white people. You guys try to turn everything into a racial issue.” And Shaq? “Tell Yao Ming, ‘Ching-chong-yang-wah-ah-so.”

Ha ha, I find it funny how they sit on the TNT set all righteous now. Most people have racist views of one sort or another. People need to stop raising their own profiles and pretending they don't.

WOW!

4 games, 4 overtimes. What a series.

They weren't. They just said they were because it sounds good. And its a wealthy white guy paying wealthy black guys to basically run around and have fun and fuck lots of women and fly in chartered planes and basically have their entire lives catered to. This is hardly a racially charged environment. Its actually much more a socio-economic disparity between them and 99.99% of the donkeys that watch the games.

shit didn't realize tnt shows their shows for free online on their site. clippers and gsw on tnt right now

Nice flop, Paul. Time to start giving suspensions after x warnings, like with techs.
post #14922 of 27206
holy shit i just thought about conference finals. it actually might be wizards heats or even better wizards nets. so nets could potentially go to the finals against grizzlies or mavs

holy fuck mind blown.

this year is so fucking awesome



goddamn look that at that DJ free throw. theres zero doubt that he squares up and has both feet on the line facing the rim. he pauses after he rises up negating any momentum from his legs and his release point is so inconsistent. sometimes its behind his head sometimes its way in front of his head

i dont understand how any serious nba analyst former coach or otherwise think he has good form

he's so inflexible that to line up his shot he has to twist his body right cuz his feet his squared up


look at the darren collision free throw. so much better form. momentum from legs brings up the ball and he doesn't do a two motion free throw, but a one motion (you can see how he ends on tippy toe) feet turned left 10 degrees, arm and hip lined up with basket, release point right in front of forehead.

why doesn't DJ ask darren collision or jamal crawford or chris paul for advice on free throws?


DJ's form so inconsistent. usually he's squared up sometimes he's staggered, but feet always towards basket. torso rotated right, release point always different, elbow sometimes out sometimes in

even draymond green has great form. same thing. ten degrees left, arm and hip lined up

The plan was set, the product of a 30-minute players meeting.

The Warriors were going to go through pre-game warm-ups and take part in the national anthem and starting line-up introductions. They were going to take the floor for the jump ball, dapping up the Clippers players as is customary before games.

Then once the ball was in the air, they were just going to walk off. All 15 of them.

“It would have been our only chance to make a statement in front of the biggest audience that we weren’t going to accept anything but the maximum punishment,” Curry said. “We would deal with the consequences later but we were not going to play.”
Your last paragraph is ridiculous. Compare the net worth of any of these owners to just about any of these players.
