Racist remarks and lifetime ban

On April 25, 2014, TMZ Sports released a recording of a conversation between Sterling and mistress, V. Stiviano (born María Vanessa Perez, also known as Monica Gallegos, Vanessa Perez, and Maria Valdez).[45][46][47] In the recording from September 2013, a man confirmed to be Sterling was irritated over a photo Stiviano had posted on Instagram, in which she posed with Basketball Hall of Fame player Magic Johnson.[46][48] Sterling told Stiviano: “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people”, and, “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want”, but “the little I ask you is … not to bring them to my games”.[49][50][51]

The recording received national media coverage[52][53] and Sterling retained Newport Beach based attorney Bobby Samini as his lead counsel in litigation with the NBA, TMZ, and Sterling’s ex-girlfriend V. Stiviano.[54]

Clippers president Andy Roeser issued a statement the following day, indicating that Stiviano was being sued by the Sterling family and had “told Mr. Sterling that she would ‘get even'” with him.[55][56] A month earlier, Sterling’s wife had sued Stiviano for the return of a $2.6 million Los Angeles duplex as well as a Ferrari, two Bentleys, and a Range Rover she said her husband bought for Stiviano. It was ruled that V. Stiviano must return the $2.6 million to Sterling. [57][58][59]

Sterling’s comments affected the NBA, a league with predominantly black players.[60][61] On April 26, the team held a meeting to discuss the incident. Both coaches and players expressed anger toward the comments, and they briefly raised the possibility of boycotting Game 4 of their series against the Golden State Warriors on April 27 before deciding against it.[62] Instead, players protested Sterling’s remarks by wearing their shirts inside-out in order “to obscure any team logo” during their pre-game huddle.[63] On April 28, players of the Miami Heat wore their uniform tops inside-out to show solidarity with the Clippers. LeBron James commented on the situation, “There’s no room for Donald Sterling in the NBA”. The owner of the Miami Heat,Micky Arison, also called the allegations “appalling, offensive and very sad”.[64] NBA’s Kevin Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kobe Bryant also condemned Sterling’s remarks.[65][66]

The 1994–95 NBA season was the Clippers’ 25th season in the National Basketball Association, and their first season in Anaheim.[1] During the offseason, the Clippers acquired Pooh Richardson and Malik Sealy from the Indiana Pacers, and signed free agent Tony Massenburg. The Clippers started the season playing their first two games against the Portland Trail Blazers in Yokohama, Japan.[2] However, under new head coach Bill Fitch, they struggled losing their first 16 games of the season, on their way finishing last place in the Pacific Division with the league’s worst record of 17–65. Showing improvement was Loy Vaught, who led the team with 17.5 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. Top draft pick Lamond Murray averaged 14.1 points per game, but was not selected to an All-Rookie Team at season’s end.

The only highlight of the season was the Clippers defeating their crosstown rival, the Los Angeles Lakers 109–84 at The Forum on December 9, which was their second win of the season.[3] Following the season, Gary Grant was released and signed with the New York Knicks, and Massenburg left in the 1995 NBA Expansion Draft.donald-sterling-mistress-v-stiviano-adopted-two-african-children__oPt
