Sterling on Winning, Or Lack Thereof

Here’s the Clippers owner flat out lying talking about valuing winning over making money: “If only he could dismiss his team’s poor record so easily, the Lakers a constant reminder of what happens when things go well, and it was Sterling who bought property from Buss so Buss would have the money to buy the Lakers. ‘There are other owners who think we’re successful because we generate so much income,’ Sterling says. “We turn more than a nice profit every year. But you know what? I’d rather not generate any income — and win.”‘

    ken: don’t worry about him, he’s just some immature kid who says “u homo” in every thread.

  • tavoris

    Dunleavy has to fire himself. Sterling’s words about winning should be taken with a grain of salt since they haven’t had but 2 or 3 winning seasons in the last 20 years.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    what james said and this d-bag cares as much about wining as Z-Bo!

  • rav

    not sure what is worse – an owner who has been happy to make money instead of win or people who pay $1000s a year to watch a perennially bad team and line his pockets

    so he doesn’t try to go over the salary cap to pay for the talent that would win?
    I dont even know if Billy Crystal goes anymore.

    Isn’t there a limit for owners and teams how much they can lose before the team is assigned to the D-League? Thanks very much for trying Mr. Sterling and welcome to the NBA to the Bakersfield Jam?

    “I’d rather not generate any income and wins.”

    It’s not necessarily friendship that’s keeping Dunleavy around. Sterling won’t fire Dunleavy because then he’d have to pay out Dunleavy’s contract, and pay another coach and GM. No way Sterling will do that. It might cost money.
