Mark Jackson Says Fans Should Boycott Game 5 in LA

by April 29, 2014

The Golden State Warriors visit the LA Clippers Tuesday night for a pivotal Game 5, and with the ugly Donald Sterling mess hanging over everything, the tilt promises to have a circus-like atmosphere around it. Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is calling for a fan boycott. Per the AP:

Jackson was responding to questions Monday about how fans in Los Angeles should react to the purported comments of Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling a woman not to bring black people to his games or associate with them. The Warriors coach said: “I believe if it was me, I wouldn’t come to the game. I believe the fans, the loudest statement that they can make as fans is to not show up to the game.”

Jackson said players have families to worry about and are getting paid to be there but fans “cannot allow someone with these feelings to profit.
