Clippers’ Owner Donald Sterling Heckles His Own Player Baron Davis
Baron Davis signed a five year, 65 million dollar deal with the Clippers in 2008.
Meaning he makes a little over 12 million dollars a year, you know who signs those checks?
You know who is sitting courtside heckling the player that is being paid 12 million a year?
Yeah I know, I am confused too, here are the details:
Sterling has expressed his displeasure about Davis’ play by taunting him from his courtside seat at Clippers’ home games, several sources told Yahoo! Sports. Among Sterling’s verbal barbs:
– “Why are you in the game?”
– “Why did you take that shot?”
– “You’re out of shape!”
While Sterling has also taunted other Clippers players since the middle of last season, none have received it worse than Davis, the sources said. Davis has missed 14 of the team’s 25 games this season and is averaging 7.4 points while making a team-high $13 million. Including this season, Davis has three years and nearly $42 million left on his contract.
Why does Donald Sterling still own a NBA Franchise?
You are telling me David Stern has all this power, but he can’t figure out a way to get Sterling out of the league. Instead of the NBA taking control of the New Orleans Hornets, they need to take over the Clippers.
I worry about Blake Griffin’s future with this franchise, he maybe the one player who should beg for a trade.
