The recent racist allegations against Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has put the entire team in a tough spot. With most of them being African American, it has to be one of the toughest tasks of their lives not to make some sort of comment in response to Sterling’s recorded remarks, which we know right now they can’t.
However, they may be planning their own special form of response when their current playoff series with the Golden State Warriors moves back to LA for Game 5.
Clippers players strongly considered making a statement today but will likely do something to be determined in LA for Game 5, source said.

What this could be–well at this point it could be anything. There was some talk when the allegations first came to light that the team could plan on boycotting Sunday’s Game 4, but they ultimately will not go that route.
What would be the team’s best form of a response, if they are planning one for Game 5 in LA? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
