Everyone has been reacting to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist remarks that were caught on tape. It puts the players and coach Doc Rivers in a precarious situation, with some like rapper Lil Wayne saying they’d refuse to play.
Rivers downplayed any idea of a boytcott saying they wouldn’t let Sterling’s comments stand in the way of achieving their dreams.
“Honestly, I’m completely against that and they were too,” Rivers said, via the Los Angeles Times. “Why should we let someone’s comments stop what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to do something too here and we don’t want that to get in the way of what we want to do. I think the biggest statement we can make as men — not as black men, as men — is to stick together and show how strong we are as a group, not splinter, not walk. It’s easy to protest. The protest will be in our play.”
