Chris Paul May Sit Out if Sterling is Still Clippers Owner
According to AOL, NBA point guardChris Paul has stated that if Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is still running the team when the season starts, he might sit out. He and coach Doc Rivers are in agreement that they can’t play for an owner who is so bigoted.
“That’s something me and Doc are both talking about,” Paul said. “Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon – sooner rather than later.”

Sterling has been banned and fined $2.5 million dollars and is currently in court with his estranged wife Shelly, who has in principle, sold the team to ex-Microsoft executive, Steve Ballmer.
“We’re all going to talk about it,” says Paul, who will speak to teammates as well, “We’re all definitely going to talk about it. Doc, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan. It’s unacceptable.”
