Default [BREAKING]Chris Paul : A boycott is a real possibility

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...erling-remains

LMFAO could you imagine the Clippers not dressing for their first few games because Donald Sterling is still lingering around in operations

**** the Clippers. Even when they have a built team and good coach they can't catch a break

Who are they boycotting? The NBA, which has pretty much put everything in motion that they could? Their fans, who will completely get ****ed over? Themselves, who will have their playoff possibilities nerfed?

It can't be Sterling, dude is nuts and/or senile, do they think he gives two ****s if they don't show up and lose games and how he looks? A boycott basically hurts everyone except Sterling. It's also a big FU at everything the NBA has tried to do, why should they try so hard if the players have their own unhelpful agenda.

Weird situation.

If nothing is resolved, does that mean potentially they could sit out all year?

Good for the players from the Los Angeles Clippers along with their head coach talking about taking action to address this raving lunatic of an owner who seems intent to drag this through one lawsuit after another. This could go on for years if Donald Sterling has his way.

Not only should the players and coaches threatened to boycott, the rest of their corporate sponsors should pull away from the franchises well until this is resolved. Some have already done so.

They should just contract the clippers. A team with no history or prestige and most NBA fans wouldn't care all that much if they disappeared off the face of the earth the next day.

Silver, the NBA, Clippers players still need to be called out for lying about not knowing Sterling's history.

If a bunch of nobodies like us on ISH knew about his history, how does a couple of hundreds of multi-millionaires didn't know?

Now all the sudden, the masses, the non-NBA/non-sports people know about his history too and they're gonna start acting like a bunch of noble freedom fighters or something? GTFO here with that bullshhht.....They let Sterling to continue his "racist" ways for over a decade.

Isn't that some sort of breach of contract by refusing to play?

But yeah, Clips fans will be thrilled their team is chilling at the crib instead of playing in the game they bought tickets to.

If only all these players knew Sterling was already a racist before signing their contracts, and before the tapes leaked. Oh wait....

Even well before that TMZ incident, I too knew about DTS's bigotry and thought he should have been out (since that story about baron Davis getting heckled by DTS circa 2003).

But somehow everything was fine and dandy as stern let him run his joke franchise.

But hey...players are/were getting paid their millions to buy their toys and mansions so as long as they were happy with that they kept quiet.
