G4: Heat 109, Charlotte 98: Sweep = sleep!; plus new Dolphins draft projections, NBA racist-owner poll, Panthers, Dr. Jack, Ireland, Herald & more

1aa1amichotwalt1) It is TUESDAY, APRIL 29. Demolition has begun on the iconic Miami Herald building, and Walt Michot's photo here is worth a thousdand words, all of them sad. 2) Jay Z and Beyonce's summer tour will kick off June 25 at Dolphins stadium. 3) ICYMI, click on The Perfect Quarterback for our column on the death of Dolphins icon Earl Morrall. It generated a voluminous positive reaction. 4) In The Previous Blogpost (ITPB): Heat-Charlotte G3 with preview/live blog/postgame thoughts/Sunday reflections, Dolphins best-game result & more. 5) Join us Twitter @gregcote.

Panthers fire coach: The Florida Panthers today fired coach Peter Horacheck. It isn't a susprise in the least. They never removed the "interm" tag from him, he did not spark a notable turnaround, and the Cats need a replacement with more NHL experience. With an impressive young nucleus of talent and the No. 1 overall draft pick coming, Florida has a fairly inviting roster. Now GM Dale Tallon must find a premier goal-scorer and make the right coaching hire to re-energize a listing franchise.

No radio today: No me today on the Dan Le Batard Show. I'll be on Friday this week instead.

DOLPHINS LATEST DRAFT PROJECTIONS: ESPN dueling Mock Drafters Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay crap their latest guesswork today and Kiper has Miami selecting Alabama inside linebacker C.J. Mosley 19th overall, while McShay has the Fins picking Virginia tackle Morgan Moses. They have Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin -- the guy Miami really wants -- going 15th and 17th, respectively. Sounds like a trade-up for Martin may be the way to go.

Seahawks hire Jeff Ireland as a temp: Champion Seattle has hired ex-Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland as a consultant through next month's draft. Explained coach Pete Carroll: "We were tired of all this success." Naw, Pete didn't really say that. But Seattle really DID hire Ireland.

G4 FINAL: HEAT 109, CHARLOTTE 98: SWEEP = SLEEP: Postgame: Miami sweeps Charlotte 4-0 with tonight's triumph led by LeBron James' 31 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds. Now let the playoffs begin! I mean the real playoffs. Brooklyn-Toronto winner on deck for Miami in next round, but, with that series tied 2-2, Heat could be in a for a full week's rest thanks to this sweep. Tonight's Heat 3 Stars: 1. LeBron. (Or did that go without saying); 2. Chris Bosh, with 17 points, 8 rebounds; 3. Norris Cole, with a sparky 13 points, 4 assists off the bench. ..... Halftime thoughts: Heat trail by two 54-52, but Al Jefferson sitting for Bobcats with foot injury and like Heat based on flow of game. Funny that Charlotte fans boo LeBron James at every touch. It's so 2010! Loved Heat's pregame warmup-shirt stunt in support of Clippers and against racist Donald Sterling. Miami shooting only 41.5%, only 2-for-12 from 3 and LeBron with a mortal 11 points and yet it's a (near) even game. Thse things do not bode well for the Bobs. ..... Original post: While playing golf on Saturday (I had a 93 at Inverrary-East while my showboat son shot 79), I predicted the fired-up Heat would win that night's Game 3 easily but 1aa1aheatchag4 1aa1aheatcha 1aa1aheatsweepthen lose Game 4, which is tonight. I called the first one right. Now I'm wavering on tonight.  All know the series is effectively over, and that in 108 all-time NBA playoff sets the team up 3-0 has won every time -- 108 for 108. But human nature can work two ways tonight. It might spark the Bobcats to avoid the embarrassment of a series shutout coupled with the Heat being complacent and coasting. Or! It might find the Bobcats going through the motions, resigned to defeat, while the Heat rev it up again for the sweep -- knowing that would mean welcome extra rest before the next round. Unlike Saturday, I don't have a strong feeling which way this one will go. (I'll be back here with commentary at halftime and postgame).

THE LIST: HEAT-CHARLOTTE SERIES SCORING LEADERS: The top five updated through Game 4:

1. LeBron James, Heat            30.0

2. Kemba Walker, Bobcats       19.5

3. Al jefferson, Bobcats           18.7

4. Dwyane Wade, Heat            17.5

5. Chris Bosh, Heat                 14.5

Heat Postseason MVP Standings (updated through 4 games/first round): Entering second round: LeBron James 11 points, Dwyane Wade 6, Chris Bosh 4, Chris Andersen 1, Norris Cole 1, James Jones 1. (We name 'Heat 3 Stars' every game and award points on 3-2-1 basis).

MY VIEW: NBA SHOULD FORCE OUT STERLING AS OWNER. NOW YOUR VIEW GOES HERE: No company or entity that deals with the public can afford to be owned or led by a racist -- let alone a franchise owner in 1aa1adonaldsthe NBA, with more than 70 percent of its players African-American. That is why L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling's racism on that audio tape is such a bombshell-crisis for the NBA and must be dealt with quickly. For now the NBA has told Sterling (pictured) not to show up at Tuesday's Clippers home playoff game, but surely more punishment is ahead. I think Sterling needs to be forced out as owner or at least be made to relinquish his authority -- the harshest penalty. But a hefty suspension and/or fine also is possible. Perhaps you think a public apology would suffice. Some of you may even think no punishment is due because, after all, it's a free country and Sterling isn't breaking any laws with his views even as they outrage most of us including NBA star like the Heat's LeBron James, who said, "There is no place for Donald Sterling in our league." How would you handle this situation if you were new NBA commissioner Adam Silver? (Hmm. Sterling and Silver. How bizarre). Take a dip in our poll and say why.

1aa1adrjackHEAT REACT TO DEATH OF "DR. JACK": [Update: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is pcitured left at age 10, with Dr. Jack at a basketball camp in 1980. Lil' Erik was so cuuuuute!] Original post: Jack Ramsay passed away Monday morning at age 89 at his home in Naples, Fla., after a long battle with cancer. (Naples, 1aa1adrspocoincidentally, was also the adopted hometown where Dolphins great Earl Morrall died on Friday). Ramsay is best known as the basketball Hall of Famer and 20-year NBA coach who led the Portland Trailblazers to their only championship in 1977. But his post-coaching career in broadcasting also was long and accomplished. He has a niche in Heat history as the team's eight-season on-air personality alongside Eric Reed from 1992-2000. Fans may recall the Dr. Jack nugget, "This-away, that-away, Hardaway!" Team owner Micky Arison said today, "When I first bought the team we had no basketball organization in place and Dr. Jack was the first person who I turned to for advice. So for a few days, he was the entire basketball organization for the Miami Heat. Over the years I often turned to him for advice. Club president Pat Riley said: "Dr. Jack Ramsay meant a great deal to me as a mentor when I was coaching and while I've been with the Heat running the team." Ramsay's long, remarkable life included a pre-hoops stint in the Navy working underwater demolition. R.I.P.

Donald Stern ignored Sterling for years as did everyone this isn't new behavior by the Clippers owner. Now it's outrageous because we have a sound bite. Do we now force out every owner who has opposing views? Magic owner opposes gay marriage. Knicks owner blew off a sexual harassment claim and ended up paying out 10 mil for such idiocy. There are other examples. Should the players boycott these owners? Doc Rivers saying he doesn't know if he can coach next year is a bit disingenuous. Doc took the 7 million per season and jumped ship likely knowing what kind of an owner Sterling was he took the money and ran. Now he's upset. Can't have it both ways.

ear morrall. dr. jack...

real dave, how about a little something from the better days!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1AWV3F8muI

To the crusty old racists on this blog hating black people is merely a "opposing view".

I am 43 not that crusty and opposing views was just an example it had nothing to do with accepting racism. Point is it opens doors for other players to boycott games and make political statements and that could upset the sports landscape. Have a nice day.

I have a thing for Thai trannys.

I am 45 but look 5.

Sneaking Sally through the Alley one of the all time great songs shadow my friends and I in college would always play it and turn it up loud. Thanks for the memory.

It's a huge problem that isn't easily solved. The Clippers player's signed contracts, so they can't just walk, but they shouldn't have to play for an owner who's a racist. They can sue the NBA for forcing them to work under unfair conditions. Sterling can sue the NBA if they force him out, since he's protected by his 1st amendment right. You can bet if this was the beginning of the NBA season, all of the Clippers would have boycotted this last game. When you have other players saying they would not play for such an owner, it puts added pressure on the Clippers players to take some kind of stand, but they are stuck with their contracts. I hope Silver can convince Sterling to sell and go away quietly. It's not like the Clippers would be a hard sell with the current team they have. Of course most normal owners would move them to San Diego or Anaheim and not try to compete with the Lakers in the same exact market. The team is originally from San Diego anyway.

Big Baby- Great response. I agree about Stern ignoring this for years & do you think he is glad he retired a few months ago! I listen to Doc Rivers and I have to laugh. Tougher to spend that 7 million now huh? I don't know what the right response is except Sterling has always been a headache for the league and this is just another one. they should have forced him out years ago. Also surprise, surprise, a wealthy bigot in big business! All industries have their fair share!

PS- I am a Heat fan & we have a great owner but is there anything Lebron doesn't comment on. Except regular season Heat games which the whole team was indifferent to.

Donald Sterling might be a prick but he has every right to his opinions. If I had a dollar for every time that I've heard some son of a bitch speak highly about Fidel Castro I'd have a billion in the bank. Donald Sterling? Compared to Fidel he's a saint.

Dave, you've played with lots and lots of communists and taken a paycheck from them. Why don't you stop playing for anyone who's free of sin?

Nothing more pathetic than a hypocrite.

You got it Gary the team wins, the checks clear and everyone is happy despite the bad ownership. Be outraged but don't act surprised about this guy folks.

Lets put the politics aside for a second and talk about a more important issue of privacy....

This is opening the door to a whole new level of paprazzi. Now instead of hanging out windows to take pix, they will just bug the room service cart & listen in to anything they want from whoever they want.
People talk about the govmt & NSA spying well this is just as bad.
You will not be able to have a private conversation anymore without the world finding out!!

Put yourself in those shoes for a minute...I am sure all of us have said something incredibly stupid in our lives at some point, now imagine it having been recorded & played back for everyone to hear constantly...

Donald Sterling is a total jerk but just like everyone else that lives in America he is certainly entitled to his beliefs and opinions..

the NBA can't force him to sell but they can certainly suspend his ass for a long time and give him a HUGE fine, it'll be interesting to see what the other owners do with him..

RIP Dr. Jack..great man.


The next time that Dave criticizes Fidel Castro will be the first time.

Should have stayed in Boston Doc. Sometimes the grass isn't always greener. Clippers are sunk with this mess.

Just like clockwork Mr. Woodcock and Orange Bowl 4ever backing that racist piece of s*** too funny.

The next time that LMFAO criticizes Fidel Castro will be the first time.

Drop dead you worthless pile of garbage. Typical of the Nazis that are destroying this country.

Let's recap, Donald Sterling is illegally recorded by some ho that he's banging and he's now a pariah but Ray Rice can knock out his girlfriend and morons like this fool LMFAO and Dave give him a pass. Who's the piece of shit here, asshole?

Orange Bowl made a very good point he didn't mention anything about race. Why are you here anyway if you don't like anyone? Go find another hobby besides being the liberal mouthpiece for race in America.

The majority of conservatives aren't racist pieces of s*** and the scumbags on this blog don't reflect anything but their own ignorant selves.

just like you cubans, making it about fidel.. lol

as for sterling, the NBA has a constitution of it's own that enables the commissioner to deal with conduct "prejudicial or detrimental to the best interests of basketball."
if this incident doesn't fall under that category, i do not know what does.
looks like the dodger's ownership group, headed by magic, are trying to buy out sterling and letting him walk away. looks like the grass IS greener; doc's new owner will be a group willing to spend, like they do with the dodgers, and of course, headed by magic..

Liberal mouthpiece in the sky has spoken now tune him out like we do all moonbats.

No ass hole, not making it about Fidel, making it about the incredible ignorance and cavalier attitude of jack assess like you who are shocked about behavior that pales in comparison to what others are doing. Run along little boy and go play with your little drum. Dumb shit.

Nothing more ignorant than an American who is drowning in the waters of freedom who either supports or ignores tyranny happening 90 miles from America's shores. When you stand up for human rights of every citizen in the world I will start listening to what comes out of your pie hole. Until that happens all that comes out of your mouth is a torrent of shit.

david when I say the Clippers are sunk I mean it will affect their play on the court now and into the future. A coaches worst nightmare. You can dream all you want about future ownership etc but right now that team is screwed.

"Nothing more pathetic than a hypocrite."

i agree, woody.
and nothing is more pathetic than some old fart that doesn't know the difference between a communist and a social democrat, of which i, and many people i've worked for, are.
like i said, keep railing against socialism while collecting social security and medicare.
you should be providing for your own healthcare, and donating ALL of your social security checks to the CANF.
you ARE doing that, right?
mr. i-hate-hypocrites?

(insert cricket sound here)

Pro sports needs more Jewish owners. Especially on Yad Hashoa day. The NBA is anti Semitic. That is why they are punishing Sterling.

No one cares about cuba or all the other banana republics run by a bunch of spics that couldn't even govern a PTA meeting. Backwards people with backwards cultures what else do you expect.

Donald Sterling seems to be quite a POS. And it appears the NBA are just a bunch of hypocrites. His problem with minorities apparently has been well-known for years.

david is right the NBA does have a code of conduct clause. That said, this is not as simple as it seems. Sterling did not make these comments in a public forum. Sterling's conduct was personal, not public. His money grubbing whore girlfriend made it public. And if you listen to the tape it is clear she is drawing this chit out of him while trying to make herself look good "I don't have a racist heart like you". Seriously bitch you are one low class POS...just like your boyfriend.

Now I am sure that Sterling will be punished for his private indiscretions. Whether he should be sanctioned for private conduct is another matter, but he will be sanctioned. But this has got to scare the bejeezus out out every sports owner in the country. Especially those who like to ff around on the side. If I were an owner of any sports franchise I would be leery of talking to anyone, anywhere, about anything in the future. It now appears that even private thoughts are not allowed.

PRETTY FFING SCARY!!!

Poor Clipper fans just when it looked like they were turning the corner they go back to being the Clippers we all know and used to love.

The ugly guy who can't carry a tune becomes a drummer.

Peter Criss could carry a tune. Dave Groel. Phil Collins. Looks like you're a mental midget as well as being named Mike.

i don't play with known communists, dummy. most identify as social dempcrats like myself.
one would think an old cuban would know the difference.

woody, take a xanax, and know THIS, you hypocritical pu$%y.
for one thing, if you REALLY cared about what's going on 90 miles away, you would've done something about it by now.

and second, until you relinquish your medicare and donate your social security to the CANF, no one cares about your feelings regarding hypocrites..

no one, least of all me, ever claimed to be "shocked" by sterling's comments.
freedom of speech means he can stand on the corner espousing them to his heart's content.
as a private business, the NBA can and will make sure he isn't involved anymore and that views like his will be nowhere near the NBA.

midget?
i play guitar, bass, keys i sing AND i play the drums.
and anyone who knows anything about the band hierarchy knows drummers ALWAYS get the best and dirtiest chicks.
nice try, though.. lol

Nothing more cowardly than a Cuban who is drowning in the waters of freedom who is too chicken chit to go back to Cuba or do anything other than whine and cry and blame Americans for all Cuba's problems.

No shortage of idiotic comments being made here today.

I think that LMFAO, PSA and Midget Mike should go back to their KKK rally and stop posting here..

this asswipe Sterling is a pieace of chit, right?..I think we all agree on that however like Tom said we can't forget about as to why he actually said it, that little ex of his baited the guy to bring him down, that much is clear ..a total ho.

those two deserve one another.

Mr. Woodcock disagrees, racist piece of garbage that he is.

Never heard of theClippers owner till now. Heading out for 2 week trip to French Quarter, P Cola, Panama City, Tampa.

Baby, do you know want to talk to PSA? No. Sorry PSA but your wife can't come to the phone right now she has my cock in her mouth.

Of course the Donald, Sterling not Trump, is constantly being feted around LA, by the liberals and Democrats as the Donald, Sterling not Trump, is and has been a major contributor to liberal causes. The NAACP has given him several awards and they were about to give him another in two months. And why do they kiss his ass this way? Because the Donald, Sterling not Trump, peels out "Benjamins" from his wallet every day and places them in their grubby little hands. Donald Sterling contributed more money to both Obama campaigns than any other NBA owner. Did he just have a catharsis and become a racist over night, nah, he's been the same guy his whole life. People don't change they just get older.

How many of the Donald's, Sterling not Trump, dead presidents do you think that the NAACP, the Democratic National Committee, or the scores of Jewish non-profits that he has generously contributed to over the years are they going to give back to him in protest over his "racist" comments?

Right, ZERO.

"I'm shocked, shocked, that there's gambling going on."

Bunch of focking hypocrites. They make me want to puke.

Don't hit them with the truth Woodcock it's likely too much for them to handle.

More banana republic political analysis from a racist piece of garbage who wants to excuse his like minded trash brethren.

I crap bigger than these ass holes like Dapper Dave and LMFAO and wipe my ass with their bank statements. What do I give a flying fock what they say, which is precisely what Donald Sterling is doing right now.

In this country like every other country the only color that counts is green.

FAO, when you have some spare time and can get away from the computer at the public library you can come over to my house and mow my lawn and wax my cars. Just remember when you're applying the carnuba you apply the wax with the hand that you wipe your ass with but buff the paint with the other one.

FAO is busy calling the NAACP asking them to return their money to Donald Sterling. What a horribly unethical organization they have been exposed as now.

Woods, did you see where Toyota is moving their HQ from Torrance over to TX?

http://www.latimes.com/business/autos/la-fi-toyota-texas-20140428,0,2881400.story#axzz30DSLS2J6

Presidential campaign committee should give back money as well I mean how can they sleep at night knowing they took all of this money from a known racist?

Bull crap, BB. They are no different than any other group or organization. Everyone has a price. Only God is perfect.

"Before the cock crows you will deny me three times."

I do not associate with Mr. Woodcock!
I do not associate with Mr. Woodcock!
I do not associate with Mr. Woodcock!

SQUACK

Hahahahahaha...

Yup. But brain dead's like Dapper Dave think that a nasty polluting industry like the automotive industry has no business in the People's Republic of California.

Dave has it all figured out, OC, once they get rid of all those rat bastard corporations that are paying for all the social programs in CA guys like him will start playing benefits around the state to pay for the wet backs and the po' folks benies.

Hey Dapper, how's bout you and your friends come over to the Jose Marti Club in Hawthorne and play a free gig for the big May 20th celebration?

Each time you think this blog can't sink any lower,it somehow manages to do so...amazing bunch of dumb asses on here.

now you're going to make this political?
you're a pathetic old cuban, waiting to die, taking your social security and medicare and telling people you disagree with that their wife has your cock, (which heavens knows stopped working sometime after bush I), in their mouth.. lol

notice how i didn't make it political?
i took the high road, but know THIS:

sterling is a registered republican.

you silly old racist cuban piece of mierda.
a search of the los angeles county registrar-recorder's website for sterling's name, date of birth, and address confirmed that he's registered as a republican.
now, of course, one would have to not have fox news on 24 hours a day to discover that, but it is indeed the truth.
so if you really want to make it political, go ahead. just get your facts straight, douche bag.

Yup, especially Todd's rump ranger ass hole.

You seem to spend a great deal of time thinking about men's asshole's,you dirty old goat.

Nah, it's just that your's stinks up worse than a pressurized stream of skunk juice being shot out at 1000 pounds of pressure every single time that you post on this blog.

why would you make this political, you moron?

STERLING IS A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN

a search of the los angeles county registrar-recorder's website for sterling's name, date of birth, and address confirmed that he's registered as a republican.

now you'd need to put the viagra down and turn FOX off to know that, but it IS the truth.
so if you want to make this political, go ahead, just get your facts straight, for once..lol

Et Tu Brute, OC?

one MORE thing?

don't compare your bank statements to mine, viejo.
my family was hiring YOURS in the 60's in hialeah, back when you folks remembered what it was like to have nothing and didn't BLAME those with nothing.. lol

i wouldn't make this political, considering sterling is a registered republican.
but you knew that, right? lol

Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson had a clear message as to how fans should react to the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling: Boycott Game 5 at the Staples Center.

"If it was me, I wouldn't come to the game," Mark Jackson said Monday. "I believe as fans, the loudest statement they could make as far as fans is to not show up to the game."

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/10853136/mark-jackson-golden-state-warriors-says-fans-boycott-game-5

Of course he doesn't want the fans to show because it will help his team. If Jackson had an ounce of integrity he would refuse to coach the game in LA.

Tom, if you know any of your friends who have tickets and are going to stay home in protest please tell them that Mr. Woodcock will pay twenty cents on the dollar for all the Clipper tickets that they don't want. BTW, tomorrow I will only pay five cents on the dollar.

"Get your red hots!"

The place will be packed. It is must see entertainment. A real live train wreck in progress.

The Donald, Sterling not Trump, is a self made man who grew up in Boyle Heights the son of Jewish immigrants. He started his life with less than nothing. By any measuring stick he is an unqualified success. You don't have to like someone to do business with them.

BTW, I don't see Michael Jordan paying his black players on the Bobcats more money than Sterling is paying his with the Clippers.

As Michael explained to Charles Barkley on the reason why he doesn't give money to pan handlers. "If they can extend their hand and ask me for money they can extend their hand and say, 'Welcome to McDonald's.'"

Uh nyuck nyuck nyuck uh uh stream of skunk juice.So clever and funny uh ha uh ha...What's it like to be 70 years old and have spent your whole life as a total douchebag un-funny moron?Stupid ass...

I already got an invite for tomorrow's game so I will be giving you boys the man on the street perspective on Wednesday. Of course Ol' Woodcock is going to watch the game in a suite and show up at the Staples Center in a low key manner and drive into the subterranean parking under the arena. The only way that I would park at one of the lots and walk to the arena tomorrow is if I had a platoon of armed to the teeth Koreans from Koreatown. There isn't a snowball's chance in Hell that Ol' Woodcock is going to get Reginald Denny'd at the game tomorrow.

It's wonderful. You should try it sometimes, Jr. It's called being a resounding success achieving the American Dream while you look for empty soda bottles to return to Publix. He he.

Wax on wax off?

Nah,money is not even remotely a problem.I have plenty of it.Plus I will bang more poon this week than you have seen in your whole life,you old closet queen.

That's what they all say. Your idea of sex is wanking off at the public library watching negro women dancing in Kenya on the National Geographic channel.

And of course what Big Baby takes out of this situation is that the NAACP is evil. Ya know, not the racist, but the NAACP. Bunch of racist assholes on this blog for sure.

Nope just pointing out that the NAACP takes money from a racist slum lord. Guy has been named in 2 lawsuits citing low income housing discrimination a real champion of causes this guy. If the NAACP had any morals they would have told this guy to fu*k off. Of course they don't and they didn't.

In 38 years in the real estate business I have yet to see a Donald Sterling apartment building that wasn't clean, well, run and had happy tenants.

Donald Sterling is a great man!

Maybe Woodcock you're usually right but I don't think he's feeling the love concerning his tenants. Not a great reputation to have being a public figure.

He runs his apartments like a good madam runs a good whore house, clean sheets, good looking friendly broads, and comfortable beds. The Donald bought in good neighborhoods , fixed up the buildings, brought in competent management usually an older Jewish immigrant couple from some Slav country, and kicked out and kept out the uncleansed and the undesirables. And that ladies and gents is why he's loaded.

You get what you pay for. Donald went cheap and it exploded on him. If he was banging a $7,500 to $10,000 a night ho with a degree from Radcliffe this would never have happened to him and he could have confidently taken her anywhere with him even to a black tie affair in the White House. But what do you expect from a cheap bastard like Donald Sterling.

woody and baby?
since you brought politics into it, you should know sterling is a registered republican.

yeah, a republican. of course, it is a matter of public record, easily accessed by the internet, but when you have FOX and the drudge report, why bother, right? lol

Let's give the players and coaches the option to opt out of their contracts next year. They can automatically become free agents.

Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/post-abc-news-poll-shows-democrats-at-risk-in-november-as-obamas-approval-rating-falls/2014/04/28/2a448b04-cf07-11e3-b812-0c92213941f4_story.html

WTF are those 41% thinking?

Donald Sterling: Well I fool around sometimes. I do. When a girl seduces me and tells me all of these hot stories and dirty things and tells me how much she wants to suck on me and takes off my shoes and licks my feet and touches me. When I'm in a limousine, she takes off all of her clothes. The limo driver said, what is going on? And she started sucking on me on the way to Mr Koon's house. And I thank her. I thank her for making me feel good.

Attorney: Sir, the question was, is this your handwriting?

LOL

Sterling is 80 years old and that ho can suck the moon through a swizzle stick. And by the way, you have seen the face on the latest Mrs. Donald, right? A long, long, time ago, in a galaxy far, far away maybe she had a face and a body for sin and was worthy of being anointed as the new "trophy wife" but come on, bro, even plastic has a 500 year shelve life. I've seen better looking mugs on bottles of iodine than on Mrs. Donald. What a dog. Woof, woof.

Donald Sterling is a great American hero!`

Oh Limpcock we all know you haven't seen any poon in decades.You would do anything to have someone half as good as the latest Mrs.Donald to put that shriveled old dick in.But instead you will just sit around fondling your old man balls and thinking of better days that never were.

Well Well looks like the NAACP listened to Big Baby after all. The LA Chapter came to it's senses and they are giving back the money Sterling gave them. Seems they covered their bases though saying that it was an "insignificant amount". My guess is they hold back on giving him that Second Lifetime achievement Award too. Who gets two lifetime achievement awards? $$$$$$$

Mr. Woodcock,

i am amazed at the sound level of the donald sterling audio; this wasn't a recorded message on some cell phone, but a conversation very close to a powerful microphone. donald sterling is an idiot and has been long before this incident. if you think his wife is no bargain, this "girlfriend" has had some horrible facial work done as onew eye looks to be about two inches above the other. our blogfriend who stated that she looked like a "thai tranny" is pretty close to the truth. i imagine that donald sterling developed "the jerry buss syndrome" and needed to be surrounded by a dozen "women" a third his age. how he got trapped into that dialogue is above me, but maybe not considering the excellent movie "the conversation" that dealt with electronic surveilance forty years ago!! whatever the NBA does they'll do, but forcing him to divest of HIS allclub sounds a little communista, communista to me. remember that originally our declaration of independence was gonna read "... life, liberty, and ownership of property" if i recall correctly. have a great time at the ballgame- the overhaul they did in the area around the staples center was pretty good, i would say. give me the parameters of what you consider to be the "stay out of town" side of LA. in my cruising days the ole shadow knew no boundaries of where to go tracking down girls who would rather ride in the 1974 BMW 2002 than sit waiting for the bus or be walking to there destination. geez, LA used to be a great place to cruise!!

Jr., I'll make sure to give the Donald, Sterling that is not Trump, your regards when I see him at the game tonight. While you and your roommate are having a zit squeezing contest tonight I will be limoing to the game with a couple of escorts.

He he.

Shad, you know that Donald is a gigantic cheap bastard and that he has the first dollar that he ever made. The fact is that there's nothing that anyone can do to him to hurt him in any way shape or form for being an ass hole. He didn't do anything illegal and even if the league can convince him to sell the team he's got them over a barrel because he can now ask for more money for the team than the Yankees, Dodgers, Celtics, and Lakers combined. And he's 80 years old for cris sake. When my 88 year old mother rips one in church on Sundays and the paint is peeling off the walls what can you do other than hold your breath and hope that the Monsignor has turned the AC on to blitzkrieg and blows the smell to the other side of the aisle.

Court Reporter, that's the post of the day.

Every time I read it it cracks me up.

Boys, time to back the Brink's truck up to your bookie's house and bet it all on the Warriors tonight.

It's going to be Circus over there Woodcock get ready. I don't think court reporter is making that up I think that is an actual quote from Sterling. He won't get Yankee or Dodger money but his cool 15 million dollar investment will likely turn into 600 mil if he sells.

I would refund all the money for tonight's game and sit with ten black hookers at mid court sipping on a scotch on the rocks while the ho's took turn giving me head. Then I would proceed to turn off the lights at the Staples Center and give everyone in the building and watching on TVs across the country the one finger salute as I exit the place. Fock em.

Tell Doc to come back to Boston after he leaves LA all is forgiven. David I never brought politics into it show me where I did.

Woodcock,

Keep your eyes open tonight, bro. Unbelievably coincidental, today makes 22 years to the day when the acquittal of police officers who pounded on Rodney King was announced. I remember waitng to cross Crenshaw Blvd. and Jack Northrop Av. to one of our other buildings just after noon when a car full of ("disgruntled locals") began shooting at pedestrians as they made their way driving towards downtown in what was about to become a full on riot.

If Silver's decision is interpreted mild, LOOK OUT.

The coincidence is striking!

Mr. Woodcock: Donald Sterling is a great person.

Big Baby: NAACP is evil.

OC Dolphin: the black people are going to shoot us all.

Of course they aren't evil their mission is mostly noble. Besides constantly honoring that hate mongerer the Rev Al Sharpton and many others who hate white people they are ok by me.

140 for the course, assuming you're white, feel free to make your way to the Staples Center tonight. Just make sure you go dressed in your finest Brooks Brothers suit and tie, while carrying a sign that proclaims, I ❤Donald.

Point well taken, OC. If the head Jew at NBA central doesn't show on the dais with the Reverends Al and Jesse and he dots all the Is and crosses all the Ts then the natives might indeed get restless. If I see smoke rising from east of the 405 I will be watching Rome burn again just like it did after Rodney got tuned up (Actually Rodney didn't just get tuned up he got the entire overhaul) at Shellback Tavern by the pier just like the first day of the King riots when Shellback was serving happy hour "Rodney Shots" of tequila for a dollar while the line to get in wrapped around the corner all while the boys in blue from Manhattan Beach PD kept the Mau Maus from crossing the 405 and leaving the Forbidden Zone.
