How is this any different than what Sterling said?

Would Johnson allow white folks to attend these 'negro league' games of his?

Earlier today I was thinking Sterling now has the opportunity to create the only all-white NBA team.

Twitter makes it way to easy for someone to shoot off their mouth in a moment of rage.

“It’s high time blacks started their own league, he said.”

They have one. It is called 4th street park. However if they want to form a league, have at it. They don’t even have to change the letters. NBA will be the Negro Basketball Association. The WNBA will now be called the White Nationalists Basketball Association and the Women’s league can change to the LNBA.

That’s a joke. It wont be called Nationalists.

Sterling’s only half racist as his ex-GF who’s dishing all the dirt is half black. Johnson is all racist.

I consider the NCAA basketball tournament, March madness as one of the best sports events in the world, I don’t even watch the NBA. Too commercial and the season is long, they should half it at least.

Steve Nash, Kirk Nowitzki, Manu Ginobilli, a lot of the best players in recent years, have been these guys, Nash won the MVP more than one time.

Basketball is a great sport, and the NBA is slaughtering it.
