There is literally no end to Donald Sterling’s audacity

Okay, it’s an NBA owners meeting sometime last year. You’re Donald Sterling. I’ll wait while you vomit at that idea.

Okay, you’re Donald Sterling. You are certifiably the worst owner in the history of professional sports. In addition to being an alleged slum lord, an alleged racist, having been alleged as having committed sexual harassment on multiple occasions, you also couldn’t get a franchise out of a paper bag with a blow torch, mostly because you’d probably only get served with a class-action lawsuit from your underground blowtorch dealer for discrimination. But also because you’re terrible at what you do. You seem to understand business, having made as much as you have, but when it comes to the NBA, you’re pretty clueless. You’re talking to David Stern, the most successful commissioner in the history of the league, and one of the most successful in any sport, ever. And he asks you for your opinion. What do you say?

Take it away, Los Angeles Times!

Sterling: You don’t want to hear what I have to say.

Stern. Yes, we do.

Sterling. No you don’t.

Stern: Yes, we do.

Sterling: OK, I would fire you. You’re great at marketing, but you’re not tough enough with the union.

Every time we think we’ve hit the bottom of the audacity of Donald Sterling, we find a new level. That Stern continues to put up with the man and not outright wage war to have him forever removed from his league like an excised tumor astounds me.

    I can’t believe I’m writing this but David Stern needs to be a little more like Bud Selig and take the Clippers away from Dumbass Sterling like Selig did with the Reds and Marge Schott. He’s a disgrace to the NBA and should never be allowed to watch a game much less own a team.

    The owners better lock him out before they lock the players out

      How are you so retarded that you like Sterling over Stern? If you are talking about owners of franchises he is probably down there with Al Davis as the worst. And at least Davis has won somethingss

    Sounds to me like you would rather owners bow down and kiss Stern’s almighty feet.

      Yes Donald Sterling, man of the people. If you lived on one of his houses he would charge you high rates without ensuring decent plumbing or rodent control. If you’re wife or daughter worked for him he would probably proposition her at the very least. If he owns your sports team he would pay top dollar for one or two players and then once they are secure cut costs all around to save money while making sure the team was decent enough for fans to come. The level of stupidity that abounds on blog is mind numbing sometimes.

    As a Washington resident and 40 year fan of The Sonics, I can’t help but agree with Sterling on this one. How about a public caning for both of them?
