BS. Players just went thru a lockout and lost a good chunk of their paycheck for 2011-2012 by basically missing all of training camp and the first 2 months of the season.

You think players want to lose more money by not playing? LOL

I doubt he or other players would do this. Probably just making threats to try and ensure Sterling isn't allowed to stay (not sure that's needed anyways to get it done).

this has gotten beyond ridiculous

Yes, he's a dumbass. Yes, he said some dumbass things.

Had he been accused of raping this gal instead of saying dumbass things on tape, he'd be facing jail time but not be forced out of his own business...and last I checked, being a dumbass is not a criminal offense.

Players have contracts...and most of them do NOT have contracts with Sterling. This threat would go well beyond what any court should uphold as anything other than a breach.

Yeah...that's not happening. Also, that's totally overkill. Gotta just be hard line talk.

I get why people are mad, but come on now.

Props to the players for taking a stand but I don't think we'll have to worry about him sticking around.

Yahoo article that includes tweets from mason saying that Lebron didn't say that stuff himself, just a feel he got from the players I guess. Also it is downplayed by multiple heat players saying they like what the league has done so far.

Yeah. I think we can tone this talk down a notch. Just sounds like some sensationalism

Players need to shut up and do their jobs. Legally speaking you cannot strip someone of their ownership interest the way the league has proposed. Sterling will still be the owner by next season because the lawsuit will take a couple of years to be fully adjudicated.

LeBron's a baiter. He knows NBA can't afford to lose him and so Donald has to be pressured to go.

Mason has already came back out and stated that Lebron did not say this to him. Which is weird and don't know why he said he did.

It would be hilarious if whites said they would not play next year unless a black man is ousted. Everyone would say who cares.

What if the NBA players at large, except for the Clippers, quit? Would that make the Clips the default champs?
