The NBA is watching Los Angeles with a close eye — as is the entire basketball community — thanks to the racist rant that Clippers owner Donald Sterling was recorded going on. While the NBA is investigating, others around the league and around the game are responding to what is going on and not everyone is shocked.
While Magic Johnson was taken aback, mainly because it seemed like he was singled out, other like Baron Davis who used to play for Sterling are hardly surprised.
The Clippers’ season is over at this point as while they are on their way to possibly eliminating the Golden State Warriors, the racist comments by their owner has cast an unfair shadow over the accomplishments of Doc Rivers, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.
It is unknown what the NBA will do to punish Sterling but it’s no doubt a story that while not shocking to everyone, is far from being over.
