Donald Sterling’s ‘Clippers White Party’


In 2014, TMZ Sports released a recording of a conversation between then-Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his mistress, in which he said:


“It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. You can sleep with black people. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is … not to bring them to my games”.


This thankfully led to Sterling being banned from the league for life and fined $2.5 million, the maximum fine allowed by the NBA constitution. He then also was forced to sell the team.

Before this racism scandal in 2014, Sterling hosted a ‘Clippers White Party’ (yes, for real), where he showed off his team to his millionaire friends. A video of this party has now resurfaced thanks to NBA Reddit.

This is all kinds of awkward.
