“Why are you in the game?”

“Why did you take that shot?”

“You’re out of shape!”

Clippers fans have been yelling that at Baron Davis for years.

Now that is what Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been yelling at Davis, Marc Spears of Yahoo reports. Apparently Sterling has taunted other players as well, but like other Clippers fans Davis gets the brunt of Sterling’s wrath.

Sterling is notorious for not wanting to pay if he isn’t getting the service — the last few coaches he fired had to sue to get the rest of their guaranteed contract money. He opened up his checkbook and paid for Davis and he has a right to be frustrated with the return on investment there.

So he is publicly venting at his own team, because that probably makes him feel bigger and more important. Even if it is terrible management.

Of course, Sterling should hear the venom and taunts that are yelled at him nightly from the Clippers fans in the 300 level seats (and the 100 level seats, frankly):

“You’re no Jerry Buss, heck you’re not even a James Dolan.”

“San Diego called, they told LA to please keep the Clippers.”

“Sell the team.”

There are a lot more, but as this is a family publication we can’t repeat them here.

Just like Sterling’s taunts at Davis, the fans’ taunts are ignored. And life goes on with the Clippers. Same as it ever was.

    It is a Christmas miracle! At last someone in the Clippers FO, the owner no less, gives a darn about how the Clippers play. I know it is hard to believe, it is certainly refreshing even through it won’t last.

    Baron Davis better wise up . The Clippers have a 20 year old playing point guard and pushing Davis for playing time . Yea yea it’s the Clippers , but their not the ” same old Clippers. ” With the addition of Blake Griffin and the two guard Armstrong , the Clippers are a player away . I like their center Kaman , but he’s injury prone and therefore must be traded away . The Clippers are going to be a force soon just like the Oklahoma team that came from nowhere when they got Durant. Believe it or not Blake Griffin is better than Durant and there are only a few better players in the league. Give him time to mature . As for Don Sterling , just enjoy the games Don . No boo birds welcome .
