PBT Podcast: Talking Donald Sterling fiasco with Dave Zirin of The Nation

The racist comments allegedly made by Donald Sterling have become the biggest NBA story of the season. By far. Which is sad because they are overshadowing what has been a thrilling playoffs.

In the latest edition of the PBT Podcast myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss Sterling and the fallout with Dave Zirin, sports editor of The Nation (as well as author of a new book about Brazil and its World Cup efforts).

Zirin has written some fantastic pieces on the Sterling situation and we discuss how David Stern should not be blameless in this mess as well as why Commissioner Adam Silver now seems to have a mandate from the other owners to act (think $$).

      This would be a coup for the Lakers if they know what they’re doing.

    One of the reasons players would play for the Clippers is for the beautiful L.A weather and big marketing opportunities. It’s a destination city, of which there are very few. It’s got to be frustrating for a player to play in such a fantastic setting under such a despicable owner.
