Donald Sterling is a Tremendous Motivator

As in, he’ll cuss your ass out without even thinking twice: “Sources within the Clippers organization told Starting Blocks that owner Donald Sterling went on a profanity-laced tirade inside the locker room and threatened to trade the entire team. Too bad the trade deadline has passed. Sterling, according to the sources, blasted players by name, including the team’s second-leading scorer Al Thornton. In one exchange, Sterling called Thornton the most selfish basketball player he has ever seen. When Thornton asked coach Mike Dunleavy (who was standing nearby) how he was playing, before he could answer Sterling told Dunleavy to ‘shut up’ according to one of the sources”.

(Thanks to reader Carl for the tip.)

    I bet that the boys can’t wait to get on the court and put in a solid effort tonight.

    Taking your anger out on a young kid who’s still learning the NBA game is shameful. I think you may be right TAD.

    You know what they say. Those who can’t buy those who can and then criticize them for not being profitable.

    worst owner, cheapest owner, most retarded owner…and top it off Big Dun went out like a beeoch when he should have stood up for his team…and they wonder why the Clips cant go nowhere

  • luke

    Cant stand the heat,get off the court….brought in a few fairly big name players in the off season,ricky davis,baron,camby etc…..never look like they play hard from one night to the next.Dunleavy clearly wasn’t going to do it,someone had to.In any industry you would get blasted for not doing your job properly,and with some being on around 20 million a year,I think the owner has every right to blast his players.

    Is motivator a euphemism for racist?
    Just curious…

  • luke

    What an idiotic thing to say…

  • chintao

    @ luke ==> Sorry, but Sterling’s history begs Allenp’s question.
