The NBA community is in an uproar to the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Early Saturday morning, TMZ released an audio recording of an argument between Sterling and his girlfriend V. Stiviano.

 

Here are some of the reactions from NBA players and coaches:

Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson has apparently heard the news regarding Sterling’s alleged comments, and decided to take the high road by boycotting Clippers games.

The “Inside the NBA” studio crew weighed in on the alleged racist comments by Sterling during halftime of Game 4 between the Pacers and Hawks.
Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, and Kenny Smith all shared their takes on the issue, with Johnson and Barkley providing the most direct shots at the Clippers owner.

Sterling has a notorious history of discriminatory practices.
ESPN revealed in 2005 that Sterling had agreed upon a settlement with the Justice Department of Newport Beach, which charged him with counts of discriminatory rental practices against Hispanics, African-Americans and families with children.
In 2009, Sterling was sued twice, first by former Clippers GM Elgin Baylor, then by the U.S. Department of Justice. Baylor’s case alleged employment discrimination on the basis of age and race, while the government’s case alleged that Sterling refused to rent to African-Americans in Beverly Hills, among other claims of racially-biased rental practices.
