  10. Report: Donald Sterling almost blew up Bledsoe trade, Clippers summer

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:13 PM EDT

    Donald Sterling, Rochelle Sterling

    Things are different around the Clippers organization now compared to even five years ago, let alone a decade. It’s not just the winning on the court, there is more professionalism around the entire organization. But they are still owned by Donald Sterling, the man who is the reason for the decades of futility. This summer…

    Mike Malone Warriors

    Golden State’s Mike Malone has been in the group with Brian Shaw and Mike Budenholzer the past few years — top assistant coaches that get interviews but have yet to land in the big chair. That could be about to change for Malone — it’s a good thing when the owner wants you. And the…

    Wednesday night the Clippers went from “good young team with potential” to “these guys are close to being contenders.” The Clippers are not title contenders yet. Not until we see them play better and consistent defense. Not until we’re convinced Vinny Del Negro can coach a team to a championship. Not with the stopgap Chauncey…

    Mike Dunleavy

    Well, it looks like at least one of notoriously cheap Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s cost-cutting measures has failed. Courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ Lisa Dillman, here’s the story: An arbitrator has awarded former Clippers general manager and coach Mike Dunleavy slightly more than $13 million in compensation. The Clippers had quit paying Dunleavy immediately…

    Clippers Donald Sterling is still a despicable human being. A man with a laundry list of offenses of offenses from the serious (racial housing discrimination) to just screwing up his NBA team. This has not changed. But he has won key court battle. A jury Wednesday rejected a $2 million lawsuit brought by former Clippers…

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    We’ve all been there — working for a boss so bad you started plotting your way out from the first day you were on the job. We’ve all got the horror stories. Clipper GM Neil Olshey has said Blake Griffin will be a Clipper forever. You can bet that is the desire of the front…

  16. Donald Sterling sounds out of touch, disinterested at trial

    Clippers owner Donald Sterling did not sound like a cold hearted, penny pinching, racist on the witness stand of a trail Tuesday. He sounded clueless and disinterested, however. Elgin Baylor — Lakers legend and Clipper employee for more than two decades — is suing Sterling for age discrimination for Baylor’s firing as team general manager…

    The Clippers — behind the force of nature that is Blake Griffin — are on the precipice of being good. Maybe very good. Only the Thunder are a young team as well positioned to grow into a contender as the Clippers. Los Angeles has a franchise player, a good number two in Eric Gordon, quality…

The Clippers GM told…

    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…

  20. Funniest part of ‘Melo trade: Nuggets asked about Blake Griffin

    Jan 11, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame a guy for trying, I guess. Of all the crazy rumors flying around the Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios this one (from Marc Stein of ESPN) made me laugh out loud. The Clippers’ Blake Griffin is one of Denver’s dream targets in an Anthony trade, but sources told ESPN.com that those overtures have been…

  21. New legal filings against Clippers should make Blake Griffin cry

    Mark Cuban tries not to, which is more than we can say for Donald Sterling. If you are invested — emotionally and financially — as an NBA owner, you bet you would get frustrated when your team doesn’t play well. Los Angeles Clippers owner Sterling has taken that frustration out by heckling players during games,…

    “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…

    Donald Sterling. While other owners strive to reach his level he remains to gold standard. Well, maybe the coal standard. Or, um, fertilizer standard. Let’s ignore his Clippers slow start on the court — they are entertaining and show some promise in spite of everything — and talk about him off the court. Remember that…
