With the Clippers situation with Donald Sterling and how he handled that how he worked with Adam Silver in that regard, You know how he got kind of left in the Dark River scenario because I work out of Alicia Would Blake and DeAndre To then travel and go to different teams scenarios to go to Houston to give it a shot to be injured again and sees Career That's always been nagged by injuries at the wrong time for him to them.

"I mean, what? What did the players get for there One day. Other than raising awareness. What did you think of the initiatives? And do you think that's really there's a really positive steps. I do think the initiative is a positive steps. I think they're positive, right? Why do you think the biggest thing with players got was? Everybody knows they will do it now. And I remember 2014 when Donald Sterling and stuff would come out and it was game for an Oakland and the Clippers took off the search. You know, there was like this big old protest it everybody the wait and see what the The owners were going to do. And the Warriors and Clippers before Game five word Platon a walkoff If Donald Sterling was not particularly and Adam's over did and it was all like He knows all squash kind of before that, but they were ready to not play and it sounded like I mean, are we really not gonna play? You know that was always there like, Hey, maybe we won't play. And the question is, will they really do that? And now that people know that they will do that? Now People know that this is a real thing, and they will walk off the court. If they don't get their way. I think that's the biggest thing they got. Aside from that, I mean, all this all these initiatives a good new thing they don't answer. The actual problem and You know, this is the stuff that I don't even though I don't think they can answer this. Like They want to end how people feel about people. I don't know how much money you got public schools to change How people think I don't know how much money you could give to the black community for racist people's inaugurations like that's not the answer. It's all that's all. Great, that's all good. But it doesn't stop people from not liking other people. At some point, you just gotta talk to those people say, man, Why are you like this? Let's do with that. And they're probably not gonna listen to the people they hate So there's there's a central core issue here that somehow needs to be addressed. I don't know if the players can address that, like this is why Doc Rivers It's choking up like crying because, like the reality is tough, like there's not, but Doc Rivers could do. Some people just hate this period like there's nothing he could do. So who can talk to that person who hates him? And change. That person's heart is not Doc rivers. He's done all he can. He's committed his whole life to be the best person you can and some people still hate him. How do you answer that question? I'm not sure there's enough money donations of schools that could fix that, right. That's it. That's a different conversation. Marcus. Look, Racism's always going to exist. Period. You just have to accept. That doesn't mean you stop trying. I think you keep trying and try to reach as many people as possible. But that's just something you're gonna have. Tio, we're gonna have to a society is as a man, not this, Yusa. Is the planet deal with that's just That's just the way it's gonna be. At least that's my thoughts on it. A CZ faras, the owners are concerned. It there behind the players Rights to protest. They're not completely down with him. You're not going to tell multimillionaires and billionaires had a vote if you try to get down that road That ain't gonna happen that that that will be a nonstarter. So it's just with it, And there's a lot of figuring out here and I, like the first step would be more impactful. If they did it outside the bubble in a normal year. This year is different People like Okay, Cool. That's awesome. You know, we're gonna miss a couple games. We've already missed five months was cut more days. Not that big a deal. But if you were to do it, let's say in May June during a regular year during a conference finals. Then it would have a massive impact, and I think they've already planted that seed. So I like the step because you've got to take a step first before you could move on. I think the players have already planted that seed and maybe it does get someone to change their mind. Just a little bit, But I do like the fact that the N B a and allows their players to express themselves. And I think this has been fruitful. Is it close to being finished now? Not even close to being finished. Will it ever be No, probably not. But it's okay. Actually change little by little and try to get this may be what the MBA players start. Marcus doesn't come to fruition for 20 years or 30 years, but someone's got to start it. And I think the fact that them and I thought hockey was a big step yesterday it took him a day but predominantly white sport baseball canceling games. WNBA's always What about that? And they've always been incredible always about that, and they're very pointed About that little mince words at all. They don't They don't worry about the sponsors. They they They tell you exactly what they're feeling. But I think that's what I get out of this mark is is it's a step the long way to go in again. This may not come to Parisian for a couple of decades. We may look back when we're 70 or 80 and go. You know what? We were there when it first started? And you know that. I think that's why it's so important to be very calculated, organized about this and You don't You definitely don't want to start tether stuff that can be delivered right to your demands. I do feel like they have to understand some of these things. We'll take 10 years and he kind of got of know exactly what you want to get done on this situation. You know, obviously there was talk inside of the bubble. That means about You know how the buck should have gone. The rest of the players Union should have organized. There's there's There's probably some value to that, like I mean, there's a reason like Union work and, you know, labors are together. So because when you act together, you have a plan you figured out. You could get. You could get a lot done. So I do think moving forward. They they need to realize that wasn't one of the steps that they could take now that are designed to take place in 20 years. Like what? What is the gradual stuff that That happens. You get some of the now stuff to get the thing that will have immediate impact, but also get the thing that will that will, you know, slowly deliver like that was slow, cause I think one of the big is $300 million investment, but that I just hope they understand. Some of the things that are resulting out of this is not dealing with the part that they want, like They were clearly shaken up about what happened to Jacob. And they don't want that to happen. But You know, like the core issue of that. Is there something about when these officers see these people of colors, especially African Americans? In their mind? They get they get more afraid than they probably should have been there by reactively. How you change that? Is that something that's way different, So you gotta attack the laws, and that's the point of policies right? That's the entire point of amid Mrs because you know, there's a sentiment that exists. That needs to be guarded against on you need some legal standing, right? So I think there's these things that they've gotta work out. Figure out. I do think they should get people evolve. They should get some organizations of all I love Jailer Brown. I've got a new favorite. But Dan around the basketball player, and while he's very knowledgeable, and he's.

Well, the backstory is that the videos are in possession of our reporters will hops in Lewis Clark. And that's Reinhard. Not only that, but for different people from the organization have spoken to the post about the videos, and the videos have also been examined by an outside expert. So we know they weren't tampered with or manipulated. It's pretty straightforward, actually. Is there been any reaction around the NFL to today's developments? Not that I know. It's been very quiet. Actually, I'm like every other reporter or columnist that covers the NFL. I'm I'm waiting to see what their league reaction will be. And of course, that you've already written a column about this and you, you don't hold back here is Dan Snyder in trouble is, is the lead in a political position right now to do anything about having him be disengaged from the team. I mean, we saw something similar happened in the N B, A with the former owner of the Clippers. Donald Sterling is Daniel Snyder in that kind of danger. I think he is. I don't have any special insight here, except that I know Snyder does not have much, if any support in the league. I don't believe he's got a you know, a squad of owner friends who will support him in any sort of political battle with the league. I think he would wind up on his own in that sort of confrontation. That's Washington Post sports columnist Sally Jenkins. Now we mentioned whether there would be legal reaction, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has now weighed in on the latest allegations in a statement. Adele condemns what he calls the unprofessional, disturbing and abhorrent behavior and workplace environment alleged in the report.

Spike Lee and James Dolan are having a silly feud over which MSG entrance Lee can use
"Area obviously the fallout continues on from Spike Lee having to sort of be re routed or potentially routed from the entrance he's been in all these years and it upset him greatly so we went on first take and then the next the next released a statement saying it's laughable that he's playing the victim card and actually posted footage of the VIP entrance and then a touching of hands in some way shape or form with Knicks owner James Dolan and Spike Lee as he was upset about he could use the app is used for twenty four years and about how you feel about that part of it which I understand if the Knicks are trying to avoid that I get that it was handled clumsily I think that's an easy way to say all of this correct yes it was handled in a way that seemed almost designed to draw attention to it yeah after after by the weight Leon rose as the team present the first came with him they beat the rockets right the Knicks are not a good team and they beat a good team and yet this became the story so obviously someone having an issue with James Dorn is a nothing new but be it reminded us of someone else who very recently had a very public issue with that is a square garden and James Dorn that'll be Charles Oakley who was escorted out of the building by executing was told in twenty seventeen by James Dorn you'll never get into MSG again even if you buy a ticket so of course we were gonna have Charles Oakley on the show this morning to talk about what he thought of the Spike Lee situation of what is going on under James Jones ownership and let's just say Charles did not hold back it is a plantation whether it's good bad people won't talk about is real bad over there someone may have been but I think it was twenty years old ten million dollars in new quick about it because though that bill what what is this mail problem bottle control you so much of a control freak then he heard the whole NBA them all immediately this guy hit land every month or every other week with something that don't have many women together with individual people life we should be going to live with them days will be cold with this control freak in all this that if the court would be in the business you have to have people to work for you so you have to go with people to succeed in life you got into trouble operating business you need people to work he was in distress are working every day wow I mean he listen it was a hell of an interview no doubt about it and and and I guess he he kind of gave an answer by saying that he thinks in all honesty the league should take the franchise away from him but that's not gonna happen but he can he compare him to Donald sterling he said because we've pointed out this on numerous occasions that none of this changes while James Dorn is the owner we don't expect some metamorphosis from him and his point was this is so bad for the lead we saw another very different instance but he pointed out the comparison with Donald sterling saying the league stepped in then he believes the league should step in now I I just don't see them doing that and just like we all don't see no matter who the coaches the GM is the president is good likely on rose that it doesn't matter because players are not you if you're gonna build a team what what Charles Oakley said you're not the building through the draft when you draft somebody to come there because big time free agents are not coming to play for the Knicks yeah what happened this past summer they cleared all the cap space in two point prime free agents did they just didn't go to the next they went to the nets and Stephen A. Smith is in on this as well basically saying the culture of the next sadly is still the culture now I can't he can't he can't help the Knicks win and winning you will accept already and still make the culture that you can get that part the only expense but the only person that can fix this culture change though James Dolan have stopped thank hi guys that that's in Charles Oakley brought that I mean you you you you're in New York you have to have a little bit of a tougher widely I mean okay we can bring that up what do you think that's going to happen if we don't we don't there's no chance that we think that's going to happen this guy owns the most or the franchise won the most in all the NBA one fifth in all of sports right in that area four point six billion dollars he is not as we talk about money should make you treat people assert what you treat people but this guy ain't changing no well that's I guess that's the issue and all this right is you look at it and say unless someone else does step in James Dorn is gonna own this team for as long as he wants a life is about what's incentivized writing his behavior based on the numbers that you just said has been incentivized it is been shown Hey this is a lucrative for you it may not win you basketball games but it's going to make you money you're gonna get to feel important and do all the things that come along with owning the Nixon owning Madison Square Garden and yada yada yada on down the list but what can we count on until that is an endless loop of things like this what an endless loop of Fruita futility so much so that if the Knicks are other good it's going to be completely on accident yeah yeah it's going to be just because within the body of a long period of time a broken clock is right twice a day

David Stern's greatest act as NBA commissioner was supporting Magic Johnson after HIV diagnosis
"When you think about sports that have massive worldwide appeal their soccer of course and there's basketball wasn't necessarily always that way specially when he came to the NBA and back to the early nineteen eighties we can say the NBA was flirting with extinction David stern took over the reins as commissioner and grow it into a five billion dollar per year industry during his thirty years as commissioner former commissioner David stern died Wednesday afternoon at the age of seventy seventy had suffered a brain hemorrhage on December twelfth never recovered earlier on the who collected podcast with Brian Windhorst are Jackie MacMullan I've met a lot of amazing people in my life but he is the smartest person I have ever met Brian I he had an answer for everything now they also might not have always been correct but god forbid you challenge him which we all have done from time to time he was just here the sharpest sharpest mind in a very very sharp edge to him as well which I think he very freely acknowledged throughout his you know his tenure as a commissioner he had some blind spots of you know you talk about the blocks the people that supported him I don't know this for a fact that you've got to believe that Donald sterling was one of them because why else would he have looks the other way the way he did yeah I know that's that works landmark Georgian also so you know he he's nobody's perfect of course but I just what I liked about him was there were when things matter to him like supporting women in being fair to women and whether it was a woman reporter or these W. NBA players weather was being fair to African Americans and making sure they he was so fiercely supported in the other the other example I always give is magic listen Magic Johnson was HIV positive none of us understood it in fact even urban himself when he right before he was a how to go on stage to tell everybody this is what happened to be internal on and once in one rose in his agent months Adam you know what you're gonna say something you know what one of just going to tell them I'm just gonna tell my have aids and lan said home urgent you don't have H. you have the virus that causes age I was in seventh grade or something like that right in our sole so none of us understood the severity and and David stern was up late at night Colleen medical experts all over the world to try to stay one step ahead so he could understand this crisis that he was dealing with and of course you know when Irving retired the first time and then came back and retired the second time and then you wanted to come back when you want to come back the first time that's when everybody starts it will win and I the all star game Jackie right right right we also right but that was that was accepted because that deck didn't count no one was going to you know that no one was going to play too hard that was sort of thing is a one time thing will will and you know that was the Dream Team but then when he wanted to come back following that Brian that's when you started to hear the complaints wait a minute I don't want to risk my life there was and their owners saying Hey I am not in support of this I don't want to do this and and what David stern told was all right listen I'm just gonna tell you right now if we don't do this first of all you can expect a lawsuit and we need that kind of bad publicity the we won't let it H. I. V. person and then the second thing and this was the hammer this is the hammer David stern news and I don't think this is been reported very widely was widely was this okay if you're not going to let him in and we're gonna have mandatory HIV testing for everybody in the NBA and are you all sure that you don't have anybody on your roster that's HIV positive because I'm not sure and this is the kind of and he just he was going to do the right thing by Irvine not because he loved Ervin Johnson because you did because it was the right thing to do and those are the moments when I admire him the most when even though there was I mean his legacy was at stake there imagine if that had gone badly in the attic on rock and remember we know now all about HIV that is treatable that you can live a full life with it but you can't you can't get it from exchanging blind or or I mean exchanging you know some live or or but you know blood if you you know all these things that all these scary things that back then in that climate because I lived it everyone thought will if I get near him and hugs him I might get aids we have aids but this but David store was one step ahead and he was telling everybody you bet I'm you know I'm going to fight this fight and if you aren't willing to I'm warning you these are the things that could happen and now I mean Magic Johnson told me flat out he gave me my life back he saved my life that's what I've been told me and I believe on to saying Wednesday he was devastated quote David star was such a history maker when I announced in nineteen ninety one that I had HIV people thought they could get the virus from shaking my hand when David allowed me to play in the nineteen ninety two all star game in Orlando and play for the Dream Team we were able to change the world David stern died Wednesday at the age of
LeBron James continues fight against NCAA, announcing support of 'Fair Pay to Play' Act
"College sports yes you're listening to caspian los angeles lebron james has this thing called the shop right this show on HBO and gavin newsom the governor of california has been talking about newsome awesome was a baseball player at santa clara yes so he knows that they monetize student athletes all the time so you do you have this i do okay this was newsome with lebron maverick carter on the uninterrupted deciding whether or not to sign a bill that would allow college athletes to be able to monetize their name and likeness and to be able to make endorsements our cash here's gavin newsom i don't want to say this is checkmate this i don't want to say this checkmate but this is a major problem for them to be brought the maverick carter put pen to paper right now what is going to change and what's it gonna do it's going to initiate initiate dozens of other states introduced similar legislation and it's going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest finally of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions now we're rebalancing that power arrangement let's do it let's do all right so he actually signs the bill on tv cowboy this this is this is number one reason reason why we've created this platform to be able to have moments like this where we got the governor of california signing a bill to allow athletes in college in here's a little bit more from lebron sure i don't wanna say this house opinion about it went off to any one of these big time colleges where i'm pretty much that twenty-three jersey would've sold all over the place without my name on the bag but everybody would have known the likeness my body would have been on the NCAA basketball game two thousand and four and the sosthene center would have been sold ought every single night there so coming from the this me and my mom we didn't have anything we wouldn't have been able to benefit at all from it and the university of neighbor to capitalize on everything that i would have been for that year or two or whatever so understand and with those kids are going through i feel for those who've mcguire that's wild personal in that obviously was today at training camp mason and orland ESPN LA lebron james there you heard from gavin newsom to me this is the silver bullet solution to paying college college athletes it is well first of all let's make a point here though this particular bill does not authorize colleges colleges to pay athletes what it allows is for them to make money off of their name and outside agent and to be able to be due to endorse somebody or something like to endorse nike if you're a top-flight athlete and this to me is a very fair way to deal with compensating college athletes because those athletes with a high profile will make a bunch of money those athletes without a high profile won't necessarily make anything so to me this makes perfect and complete sense if you are as he said lebron james at the collegiate level last year if you were zion williamson you could have been a nike endorser by the time you were a freshman at duke and it would have been totally okay the biggest stars would make the biggest money and and that's the way college sports should move forward this is insanely overdo it should've happened a long time ago ed o'bannon was in the room and ed o'bannon was the guy hi who originally filed a lawsuit against these guys because he was the face of a video game that made millions of dollars and he got zero from it when when he when the national championship at UCLA the NCAA which if you listen to the show you know i think a bunch of phonies and i wish the whole organization organization will go away but the NCAA makes billions with a b. often these kids billions and as brand points tout the kids often in the case of of some of these inner city kids come from poor households come from single parent households could really use a little bit of what all this money that they're making and and let's make no mistake here when lebron stock would not allow us ed oh man manning is an example when obama was at UCLA they sold a number thirty one UCLA basketball jersey in the student store that sold out as fast as they can get it in their UCLA was ranked number one in the country ed o'bannon wore number thirty one and they were all wearing it at the games how do you make the argument that that's not his name and likeness of course it's his name and likeness and if he is being marketed and sold like that he's entitled to a percentage uh of the prophets and the funny thing was mace they wouldn't put his name on the back so his actual jersey would say o'bannon by the students store would just be number thirty you're just get around paying him and lebron's one hundred percent right yep that that this is something that that should happen a long time ago i'm glad that gavin newsom here's some stake in the lead on this and your next thing's going to be well the NCAA is threatening to keep teams from california out of let's say the college football the playoffs are out of the NCAA tournament the way this bill was written first of all it doesn't come into effect till twenty two twenty three correct so nobody that's a student now is going to benefit from it it's it's gonna start in twenty twenty three and they've written the bill in a way that the NCAA can't do that can't can't single them out that's how they've prepared the bill how's that we'll read it read the LA times article today it explains it in detail they've written the bill which basically soclean prohibits anyone from in indemnified these kids from being ruled eligible for this for this specific so campaign NCWA keep a school out if a player is making money i don't think they can well that's what that's what the NC double a. threatened has threatened to do but the way this is written is that it would make it illegal for them to i would compare to the donald sterling case donald sterling when he sued the the NBA his shelly had already indemnified the the sterling's from being able to so he was an essence ensuing himself off the NCAA if you read the times article today it lays out in detail how the NCAA can try they can try and and do this but the way the bill has been written is it would not threaten their eligibility now the NCAA rules they try and change the rules but andrew how they're going to do it with new awesome i think this is going to it's going to force the other states to what is it going to go on like i i can imagine a world where if california's by itself and california schools i would imagine since he NCW becoming an advantage owns the college football playoff and runs the NC double a. tournament i can imagine them being excluded however this bill is now picking up steam in south carolina it's which would affect clemson it's picking up the contrary very to you know dabo sweeney who says the day college athletes get paid he's gonna walk away so this guy with one hundred million dollars guaranteed state of new york is now pushing this legislation nation i think the reason why twenty twenty three why in five years this goes into effect is to allow other states to catch up to the state of california when you're which by the way other states are always catching up to the state of california right well think about it if the other states don't follow suit it gives the the state of california a tremendous advantage in recruiting and other stuff they have to follow suit or their kneecapping their own teams is the the interesting thing to me is that so many people at the NCAA we are now trying to say no no no this this is a bad thing it's a bad thing because of course they're going to say that it puts them out of business it takes money out of their pocket but you know what you watch all the conferences are gonna come out and they're going to say they're disappointed the twelve does say they're disappointed in the past passage of SP SP to a six believes it will have a significant negative consequence for our student athletes and broader universities in california well of course they're going to say that larry scott by the way makes five point three million in dollars per year and he's not good at his job now he's terrible terrible it is a job okay so the bill and it was the person who brought it to the due to the floor was a state senator named nancy skinner she's a democrat out of berkeley and here's what i was talking about with you before present sound too liberal prohibits hits the NCAA from barring a university from competition if it's athletes are compensated the university of california system the california l. a. -fornia state university schools stamford in USC all opposed the bill saying they feared it would increase costs to ensure compliance with the law and lead defines or expulsion but the bill specifically prohibits the from barring university from doing that so let's see how it all plays out now he's newsom said that that presidents and boosters urged him to veto the bill let he felt strongly the state needed to address the racial gender and economic injustices justices that exists now in college good firm decision absolutely the right thing let's see where it goes

"I hear I'm certain in nam sudden sweat a little bit because I'm white nobody's in here there's a reason why they left he just right leave on the trading block yeah I mean at least you kind of speechless yeah and I think that when we talked about this story and the part of the reason why people reacted so viscerally to it so emotionally to it is he had what's called you know when we refer to as a plantation mentality right like this idea that I am the owner and golden hints at it you know these are black slaves okay these are these are proud black men who have worked their entire lives to become fantastic basketball players and they're in the not NBA the best league in the world most of them have great careers off the court as well for them to be treated like as all the money says black slaves and be seen that way and made to feel that way was absolutely disgusting and you know they interpret it even in the tape that that Donald sterling has when he talks to V. stiviano he says who feeds that will give them a call looks like as if they should be indebted to as they hold that in defense of himself when people are accusing him of being a race yeah like as if somebody else can own the clippers and give them this job they don't need you for a job you just happen to have a franchise the reason why that felt like such a dangerous thing in the league if we want to extend this metaphor and it's I'm always careful in how I talk about it but I think owners are always terrified of the players rising up against them the same way if we go back to the plantation days plantation owners or afraid of slaves rising up against them I mean this is a terrifying existential question and I think at that moment it finally was so egregious right and it was so public that players like lebron James felt comfortable the day after those tapes came out stepping in front of the cameras and saying there is no place for Donald sterling in this league that right now seems so obvious right there is no place for Donald sterling in the NBA but when lebron said it it was reveling Tory it was like this is the rebellion so this is also a story about how a new NBA commissioner actually does something about an owner how much of this was about Adam silver asserting his authority I think a lot of this story is about Adam silver hearing the tape and knowing instantly that they needed to get rid of Donald sterling you know I I've I've talked to Adam at length about this over the years like I think I like his comedy that you know in some ways my newness to the job he'd only been on the job for less than ninety days when when this happened in some ways my newness to the job actually help me because he didn't have to think through org or get bogged down by all of the other issues involved here and the slippery slope rather owners the issue of being in court with him forever like he just knew this was morally repugnant any issued what amounted to an executive order I mean he just did it and the challenge anyone to say he was wrong wait and where is Donald sterling today it's like nothing ever happened he's living in Beverly hills he hastily dollars richer he is still frequently spotted around town with much younger women we have people who always are taxing the screen shots of Donald out with it another mistress a young woman the only difference is he doesn't own the clippers anymore and then all never forget one of the long time employees of the clippers he said you know when I the clippers Donald just another rich guy in LA Ramona Shelburne she's the host of the sterling affairs.

"Donald sterling sterling affairs you find it wherever you get your podcast among other the people that they talked for a fresh interview John Blake Griffin Andre with dollar Donald sterling's wife Shelly sterling but I've not heard a lot from Ramona Shelburne super connected all over Los Angeles does an extraordinary job reporting on basketball things and she joins us now on ESPN radio us so first question Shelly sterling what was the best of what she gave you as you remembered one of the craziest scandals in sports history what about what she gave when she remembered or you like what she's doing now no just what she remembered like that the interesting parts of what yeah we sterling gave you in your reporting on this so I think that the story that people don't realize the backstory of it all what is the riding all the love triangle between and I don't know if I want to use the word love Bradley okay but it did get weird you're right between her at Donald sterling V. stiviano the Nestor because obviously Donald sterling it had a lot of ministers with over the years but there was something different about the error rate like a nastiness and a glass of Mr the that the other mistresses didn't really have an episode one of yes starts with one of these complications where they were walking outside in the mid market the Beverly hills Donald Berwick be and some of her friends entourage should not usually to Donald in the next chapter Donald in after her friends right and she runs into Shelley and they have a pretty nasty confrontation outside at the market and that's the one where you know after they had such a bad relationship like the we come the game at this you know kind of be up in her face she would follow her into the bathroom and say things like I'm getting old is he and I'm gonna be Mrs sterling I mean you know there's a sort of like code among Mister statesmen and and they're all very old very much older Richard how a bike you don't you don't bring the wife into it radio rabbit the white space indeed and it here to that but when I have this confrontation outside in the market it really takes things to a new level and that the next day is when Shelley Susie fifty on and says I want everything Donald after giving her back that's my community property is much ahead and she shouldn't have anything and that lost it of course is what leave that to be really syndicate we have hundreds of hours of tapes and some of them with some of which make Donald sterling look terrible and if Sally doesn't do her and then it or shelling would have dropped a lot this template I don't think okay ever come out but that would be leverage what why is Donald sterling's dating life how would you encapsulate thirty seconds dating life old can we call it dating you know he always had a much younger woman on it arm and some of these relationships felt like they felt like affairs but the description that the women involved would give later on a court deposition they seem a lot more than that there was a lot of descriptions of beating hammer putting in stocks on the same payment line with like you which I'm just silly rabbit I mean like we're just a rabbit kind of thing like there was this you hear them arguing on takes about what their relationship was and I don't know if you can describe it is love lives records contain definitely a quality where like you like younger women to other hand in a way Ramona Shelburne with us here on ESPN radio new season of thirty for thirties available now with a five part series on former clippers owner Donald sterling available wherever you get your podcast raw what's something you found out doing the thirty for thirty that you weren't aware of before you start of the project I don't think I realized how similar the playbook wide right so you have plenty of other mistresses and if we heard about them over the years but all written about them but you know then and I'm Hugh Shelley and hollering and she is married to the guy but there's this same playbook of like Shelly suing the metric can get community property back that actually played out a few times in history and if they use the sterling always you know emerge whether we kind of went on after that but the difference in two thousand fourteen is that B. have the receipt right eight and they're in outlets like there without looks like TMZ that would run those I don't know I don't know but mainstream organization like this one that really tawdry hate him he just ran I don't know if that happened fifteen years earlier or with some of the other Mister says that they have the means to make those kind of recording I don't I don't know as one of the light of day I think that was the big that was a big thing like wow I didn't there's literally like the same play both with like two or three other ministers and that you can find and so beyond this and again you're going to want to listen to the new season of thirty for thirty it's on Donald sterling and the whole thing is not and he loses his team for two billion dollars I've been saying for awhile or more that's just the owners wanted him gone that would've been everybody yeah they wanted that guy gone when you point to the most embarrassing things here can you just go through two or three of them as somebody who is you know are just very expert on the details here yeah I mean like you said by the department of justice for housing discrimination and they settle there's two there's two major case against them either and that he was the largest residential landlord in LA right so I I and I think that the fact that if that happened today than the a I think that would be grounds enough for a dead Billy to start proceedings to get that person out if you can't hide nickel crimes like that I would think you know heck with the players there was some pretty high profile instances of like heckling gave it actually Richard plan a minute with the entrance wound behavior that he had we had a minority owner for the warriors like bands in the league for a year for just putting hand how Lowry during the final I am the one incident that was enough to get back out for a year you have no priors right don't certainly have thirty years of bad behavior and several incidents that whatever reason to discount level but then I honestly think that the league good idea what am two reasons one he he always stated that would they they they would end up record eleven Massey in in my life I think they're kind of happy to just have a team in LA that was not good because if you're twenty either when I other the other owners who are competing for candy for every year and one of the like spot in the league that could be a great destination or could be a great franchise thank the other party all that much leave it that way like the clippers were never right related worry about them new season thirty for thirty available now five part series it's on Donald sterling how close to the clippers come to actually protest in pro testing walking out costing themselves games yeah I think it was the way closer than any of us realized just in talking to clippers players especially the warriors players like in some ways I am still the warriors players were stronger on this issue than the clippers players because guys like Andre with Alice Steph curry Jermaine o'neal they were all prepared to walk out and boycott if after the clippers won a one and and I think they want to do like an talking downgrade the dollar he was like you know I I think we should why did that you know that as well I think a lot of it was you know they were taking their lead from the clippers they felt like it was the clippers decision but I think Adam silver banning him for life on the morning of game five may have just inverted the crisis because like nobody knew Adam had the power to dance and be a lie getting her life is not in the NBA constitution gives like almost like users wartime power you know he did we just went you just went all the way with it and I think the players were satisfied with that but the if they didn't if you didn't go that far he would just they suspended him for a year or just find and two million dollars whatever I I don't think they play game five in keeping with the warriors find out that they were yeah they would she rather warning and they were like you know I I I I will let players can do on either side and Adam silver like within an hour if you had the press conference at the end of my life but if he doesn't want I don't think he played through that there might there might have been right the lady there might and violence now like you I was here that day in the city it's not like you know kind of a wait well during the ride the king trial or the OJ trial like the whole city was like waiting to see if justice would be done and it feels weird say that about sports case when you're comparing it to two criminal cases but that that was the feeling in the sitting there like.
Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era
"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

They'll never forget spots. Well, you better believe that I'm gonna have to rework sentence. Phil do that. When we so my question, Donald sterling has anybody heard from him has anybody talked to him about Donald sterling the closest anyone to him was that a steakhouse on Sunday night as they were getting into their car. His wife ran interference as well. As a couple of members of the security staff there at the restaurant, and essentially oh would not allow anyone to talk to him. I thought it was a very interesting. They have a racist. And she answered no he is not. And they said are these things true? And she said, no, of course, on I want to say something, I think it's very interesting. These men these big sexy rich men once they get into trouble with little girlfriends. They go ready whom to mommy, are you? Are you familiar with that done? What do you mean high from nuclear with that seeing you thing you went through it? I'm saying if you've seen this. I thought you were busting Mike. I you have been married. A long time if you will. About me. But no, I haven't you talk about me and young women. It gets a little too close to hopes that I would say that. Now, I forgot what I wanted to. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to take. I'm just saying that he runs the, mama. Absolutely. Right. He ran home to his mom me as a good friend Vernon those you would say of Donald sterling was caught his life is coming apart. Let's face it. He's losing his basketball team is reputation is in tears. He is no longer. The man about town. He is a reviled individual looked upon by the sporting community of Los Angeles as somebody no one wants to have anything to do with this guy thirty years. He was a member of the sports community in the city of Los Angeles in the country, and now no one wants to know him. So what does he do? He runs home. And there's and guess what mama Santa him everything's, okay. Baby, baby snuck. Everything's gonna be fine mommy's back in the in the picture now, isn't she? And he goes, yes, Bonnie, you better believe it. So now understand Rachel sterling. Or if you will are there showed Starling or if you will Rochelle Spangler, she is now back in the fold.

They're good luck. Got it sounded personal him. Did that did it really set it personal? Yeah. You save never been married done. But it sounds to me we'll have to get into that with Don.

"The host of midday madness. Good morning, John. How are you? Great. How are you guys? All doing fantastic. Just wonderful, sir. Travis before we get rolling here. Can I can I put in my contribution for all request Wednesday. Absolutely. All right. So you guys have heard this. But my guess is some of your listeners haven't, and I t I was trying to remember you guys the morning show was born after Donald sterling got thrown out. Right. That happened before you guys had a show before. Okay. So when that happened. It was a it was a weird thing to try and figure out what to talk about. Or how to talk about it because it was sterling was was screaming to anyone who would listen that he wasn't racist. But it was obvious that he was I mean, there was just all this evidence that that he was and Adam silver was going to have to deal with it. And all of us were trying to figure out what to do. And how to talk about that story, and it was weird. And so Michael Thompson. That's that's back in the days of Thomson gel. God blessed it. Yeah. Used to write as you know, he's the puns and every once in a while he used to write parody songs. So right in the middle of all this when we were trying to figure out how can we talk about Donald sterling, it's a sensitive subject. There's racism involved Michael came up with this song, which is my favorite thing that Michael has ever produced. Go ahead and hit it Raj. Had a team. And on his team. He had some blacks and these. Oh with the black man here and black man there. He said if you're black or with a black. I don't want you to come back. Donal had a team as as hell. No. I won't go. It's not just the writing which was excellent. But I thought the performance was over the top. He sings. I said it.

"We're talking about Bobby some meaning he was a trial attorney for Donald sterling during the mess that was him eventually selling the team you mentioned how this is all part of a larger investigation into human trafficking. So very serious issue with that in mind with that many different people, you know. Being charged and that many people involved. Do you think there's a chance that somebody like either Robert Kraft or other people are being charged in part to get them to cooperate and help a further the actual investigation itself. Well, you know, what I thought when I read the report was I wondered if maybe he was specifically parted at because this investigation appears to have gone on for six months hip seems to be alone time, you know, for this type of investigation to across. And maybe during that time they made some determination that maybe frequent at this establishment and decided to expand the timing. So it could get could be just coincidence or a D that they they had some sense that he would do that. Nabis SIMEONI trial attorney for Donald sterling talking with them about this situation with Robert Kraft being charged with soliciting prostitution, we really appreciate the time. Bobby? Thank you. Thanks very much. Thanks bye. You had a to me really interesting to see where this goes from here. When you brought up that last question, you realize maybe there is a bit of a conspiracy theory with this like maybe whoever brought him. There was just like trying to out him or have the fall. Like, you never even know. I wasn't necessarily thinking about that. As I I mean, I know election a lot of these. We'll know. Yes, we're there's also a lot of them. Let you say there's a lot of getting rich. Cooperate in the news, very powerful owner. Go Murska Haggerty out of nowhere here. She I mean.

But you wonder if maybe to get his own exposure lessened in all of this or just, you know, his his prominence lesson. They're looking for any type of cooperation that he can offer because it who knows who brought him to this place. I mean who knows how he actually made contact in the first place. If someone tells you to go to a place like that spunk to spot a spot at cool. Are they do you trust them? Like are they another billionaire? They'd just random guy you met at the bar like this has been a conversation and in in the fellows group chat. Okay. Okay. Actually, it's been a chat show. The fellas fellas. It's about twenty guy. What else seventeen of us? These are. I I assume coming up next you're going to share all the messages in this group tax could just talk about what we've been what's been talked about and five of them actually live in the state of Florida. Visit this is fairly common. Okay. And that. They're not on the list. They're not being charged being charge..
Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged in prostitution sting
"A multi-billionaire Robert Kraft owner of the most successful football team of a generation is caught soliciting sex in Florida. Yes. And part of a human trafficking sting. Bob Kraft is charged with two counts of soliciting someone to commit prostitution in Palm Beach county. And the cops say they have videotape of him paying for the axe inside this Asian massage parlor, the orchids of Asian day spa in Jupiter, Florida. So there's been a months long investigation into all of this. There were ten total spa. Shut down as part of this thing in Orlando Palm Beach county on the treasure coast, again Coffman looking into this for several months showing that women there were in sexual servitude. Boy, terrible terrible situation. There were two hundred arrest warrants or somewhere in that ballpark issued in recent days. More are expected and Robert Kraft was among them. It's one thing that if you're talking about him soliciting some Hooker when it's part of a human trafficking sting. Oh, yeah. And that gets into the spotlight because that is a problem across the country across the world. Yeah. Then what does the NFL do with that? You wonder you. You would think I mean come on. What's his name with the oh, I just blanked on his NBA team owner got caught on a hidden recording device. Shoot man, always the clippers owner now, I forget his name, sterling. Donald sterling. So that guy. I mean, he he was booted essentially, right? I mean kind of iced out of the league for that. Robert. I mean, yeah, I mean it was that. I mean, there was a lot of things that led to that. I mean, he was known as the worst owner in the NBA had done a lot of stupid bad things over the years. Robert Kraft has this great reputation. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But this is a criminal. I know and especially like you said if there is human trafficking going on. Man. Oh, man. And my goodness. So as the nine it right now. Right as denying it. Although the police have confirmed now they have video evidence not only have been paying, but allegedly capturing what went down. And the mental image that comes to mind. Immediately leads me to another thought, which is cops work in. This case aren't getting paid enough. Whatever they're getting paid. It is not an oh boy. It sounds like a cheap shot. But it's true. I mean craft before what are you talking about, you know, investigations things like that that he wanted to see hard evidence. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. We expect hard facts as opposed to circumstantial evidence. No, he's not talking about. This story is stories from the past. I just saying that's Deflategate, right? Or was that spy gate? That was Deflategate. Going by gate is different eroneous story coming out was really harmful. And what bothers me more about this story is where it went throughout the country where people don't know us as well. Well, they know you pretty well down in Jupiter. Don't they I think they do. They won't see this retraction. But people who know us know what we're about. Oh,

"Yes, as he's being hypnotized and taken into the sunken place. So for those who don't know, the sunk in place is not knowing. And how would I, how would I notice not knowing your place in society as an African American museum and not knowing the injustices essentially that are going on around you and not getting to a point where you can actually speak speak up for yourself. Remember he silenced during that period when you're in the sunken place, you can literally not speak. Yeah, there's a little. Air with the body experience and that Prescott isn't a tough situation. Now, as an athlete who's been in a similar situation, this is the way you feed your family. Do you do not have the money, nor the means on the resources necessarily to walk away and is this call is big enough? Is it big enough to where you step away from it? I was on that clippers team when Donald sterling? Yes. Had his whole big shebang of. Early one way of putting it is his farewell tour the anti farewell tour with the lady. Yeah. And we had a message in the locker room. We, we had our one little outbursts in Doc. Rivers goes, listen guys. I want to know what you're going to do because I don't want you to go out and do something crazy in the one thing that we kinda agreed to do that we ran out and we took our shirts and we do it down and that was that. And after that doc said, listen, do not speak out, don't say anything. We still have games the win. We still have a plan. We're playing the warriors that time. We have a big season at hand to to to play. There's still a lot of basketball left. Now, Ryan highlands is not the guy to essentially blackball himself potentially or put myself in a poor situation where my team or two emotionally hijack the Los Angeles Clippers until my feelings about Donald sterling and everything at the time. So I had to be quiet. I shut my mouth. There were no, and I was asked, I was actually asked from the station and say, hey, we want you to come on and speak about it. And I said, I have gotten direct orders from my job, not to do that. And. I had some people that asked me, hey, this is your chance, take a stand and say this and that I'm like, dude, I don't. Why are you surprised everybody knew sterling was racist. Why go? Why are you so surprised now? I know all those job, right? I mean, like the the selective outrage that went along with that and and everybody. I mean, and I mean, everybody was complicit in a lot of ways because it was no secret at all that Donald sterling was who he was. And what I always found funny about this is, you know, Donald sterling spent decades disenfranchising, nameless faceless powerless people of color. The minute. People decided you can't do this anymore was when he said, bad things about magic deaths, don't know about that one guy, the one person of color who needs nobody's help whatsoever getting magic and take care of himself. That was a bridge too far and like along those lines, like there's a part of me that feels bad for Dak Prescott because I feel like he's. Actually been put in a bad position by Jerry Jones explained that coming up. Also, Alan sleep is going to be join us. Talk a little Lakers forty, five wins over under. That's what Vegas has projected for the Lakers. You bet the over. You bet the under Alan sleep was going to tell us his side of the bet. What are you saying? What side.
