Sterling Pays $2.75 Mil for Being a Bad Guy

Due to his embarrassingly bad record as a landlord, the Clippers’ owner is now a couple of million poorer: “Los Angeles Clippers owner and real estate mogul Donald T. Sterling has agreed to pay a record $2.725 million to settle allegations that he discriminated against African Americans, Hispanics and families with children at scores of apartment buildings he owns in and around Los Angeles. The settlement, which must be approved by U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer, is the largest ever obtained by the Justice Department in a housing discrimination case involving apartment rentals, officials said.”

    How can u be a nba owner and discriminate against african americans? That sh*t just don’t make sense. They should penalize him for discriminating against poor people, not black people….

    Sterling and Clips are jokes. Until they separate from each other, they will be disgrace of professional sports. (Dunleavy too)

    Yeah, I wonder how Stern handles this.
    And it’s intereting that Sterling paid “2.75 million for being a bad guy” while Drew Gooden may have used a “homophobic slur.”
    It would appear that Sterling paid 2.75 million for being a racist. Let’s just call it what it is.

    No wonder why the Clips are cursed. That is a big amount of “please go away” money.

    Unfortunately for everyone, Sterling is here to stay. He has more than doubled his initial investment. Not to mention he always makes a profit. Still, I wish he went away :(
