According to Yahoo Sports writer Marc J. Spears, Rivers states the team is upset by Donald Sterling’s recent racist comments. According to Spears, Rivers states that players even considered boycotting the next game over the comments:

Magic Johnson has already announced that he and his family will no longer attend Clippers’ games as long as Sterling is the head coach. Clippers’ point guard, Chris Paul says an upcoming statement from the NBA Players Union will be the only response Clippers players will give. Paul is the President of the NBA Players Union.

    they just found out they are slaves (the house negro variety) in massas house. To him they’re a bunch of well looked after toys. His statement shows his contempt not just for them (his employee negro toys) but for black people in general.

    Now the next question is, how many other Franchise owners share his sentiment. You know he can’t be the only one right?

    • STFUUIgnants

      Allen Iverson was blackballed out of the league. This bastard’s been a known racist for years. Baron Davis used to talked about it, but was ignored. Lets see what happens to him. This is why blacks need to OWN teams and create institutions with ONLY OUR contributions..but niggas

      • Ryan Cole

        Iverson wasn’t blackballed out of the league. He kept pissing on every opportunity teams gave him towards the end because they didn’t let him have his way. What team would sign a player on the downside of his career who quits on teams because he doesn’t get to start (but still gets significant playing time)?

      • Sekou Garrett

        What the hell does Sterling have to do with Iverson anyways clown?

      • brotha_man

        not sure if Iverson was/is racist. maybe ur confusing his frustration with the way the Media and the general population portrays the black man.

    • Ryan Cole

      Truth.

  • Sgt. H. Jennings

    He’s not the only team owner who feels this way. He just got caught…. Why is this such a big surprise to everyone. Either you’re going to play or you’re not. This guy has already stated how he feels. So if he apologizes, does that change how he feels? Absolutely not…..

  • STFUUIgnants

    The NAACP gave him some kind of Lifetime award…..figures.

  • Tyfromthechi

    Every black player on the clippers should boycott playing and demand to be traded

  • STFUUIgnants

    When is team owner Michael J. Jordan going to say something. Or will he play it safe again.

    • scullyson

      When ? Thats easy . When Hell Freezes Over. Dont hold your breath

    • Tfc

      MJ is basketballs GOAT but also the blackest non black dude I ever seen in my life.

      Statement just released by Jordan, “Hey, racist buy shoes too.”

    • NCcatsBALLhard

      MJ won’t reply until after the next release of them xi’s…

    • brotha_man

      Jordan never gets involved. He likes the fact brothers are dying over his shoes, more than Donald Sterling does

  • jsj23

    I will be sure to have this recording handy, when shit hits the fan in the Ukraine and them Jews (Sterling is a Jew) need us to go liberate their asses again, as is the case every century. Us blacks are always the first to fight, only to be insulted. Doc Rivers didn’t learn much of his own history. This is not a “let’s win this to show, blah, blah, blah” moment! Where’s the integrity?

    • DJ7

      Doc is married to and procreated with a caucasian…need I say more?

  • REALTALK

    if they boycott the next game this could be historic! they should do it and prove a point instead of look like they have already sold they souls because they aint got no more fans!

    Do it you only get so many chances to make history

  • yesanditcounts

    It’s amazing to me that people are actually surprised at his comments, as well as Paula Dean’s comments. It would be surprising to me if any 80+ year white person “didn’t” feel that way. As for boycotting that would waste everything they worked for this year. What should happen is every black NBA player should never sign with or accept being traded to the Clippers going forward as long as Sterling is the owner.

    • eddieknucks

      Agreed. Players worked hard to get to the playoffs. They shouldn’t forget what has happened and all demand a trade after.

    • diondraedwards

      Now your the comment I seen actually being logical

      • diondraedwards

        Only

  • Casualkul

    Why is that the most racist people live long? Racism dies when they die. Die already!

    Due process.GTFOH iggas giving out statement talking bout almost. These iggas puzzy. Imagine if Ali, Jessy Owens, Jim Brown, Jackie Robinson almost stood up. Where’s your backbone, ballz, nuts, cohonez ….pause. These puzzies had a chance to set the world on fire for our generation and future young dudes and they took the easy road. Eff your statement and team and career. I know no one cares but the clippers lost me. Major disappointment and fail. I will never talk down to a young dude cause we ain’t giving then nothing to look up to.

    • Last statement hit like a hooker cut ( Hook / Uppercut mix ) to the liver….the type of ‘chet that stays with you & makes you feel like you have to poop!

  • dee

    I think the whole league should boycott

  • heavyboy

    “Magic Johnson has already announced that he and his family will no longer attend Clippers’ games as long as Sterling is the head coach.”
    Sterling isn’t the head coach.

    • EniggaMA

      That’s shit threw me for a loop

  • Executive

    Almost doesn’t count!!!

  • EniggaMA

    Why dudes acting all high and mighty when we feel the same way about them

  • brotha_man

    cant imagine what the world would be like if Martin Luther King “Almost” had a dream. If we almost boycotted buses and business after Rosa Parks was arrested. If the little rock nine “almost” enrolled in central high.

    • Lisa

      I prefer the Malcom X approach.

      • brotha_man

        i prefer nat turner. but x will do

  • brotha_man

    Now that society forgot you
    And they locked you in an obstacle course where nothing’s possible
    If you slip up and they caught you
    They got boxes where they lock you make a million dollars off you

  • Dhz30

    almost doesnt count

  • digitallife

    If they don’t play they get sued, it’s a reality when contracts are involved. The best attack for them would be to publicly demand trades after the season…best way to hurt a rich racist is to hurt his bottom line. When the teams loses a hundred million in value I bet you dude will get the memo that it’s time to sell.

    • heavyboy

      They get sued by who…. the league? You really think that the league would dare sue a black player for choosing not to play for a known racist? When the league itself is about 80% black? Bruh… that would open the entire league up to a possible protest that could cost billions. If the players would’ve stated that they weren’t going to play, the league would’ve made a statement already that Sterling was being removed.
