    I'm a Tobacco Road basketball fan who has followed our superstars to various NBA teams.  The Clippers at the moment have two of them and I intend to watch their games.  They, and their teammates and their coach should not be punished for what that racist pig of an owner has done.  They're are a championship caliber team in the midst of the playoffs and I expect they will come out at 3:30, heads held high and playing to win.

      I just won't be comfortable watching as long as I'm helping Sterling's bottom line - or at least until the NBA acts, providing some indication through action that this is unnacceptable.

      And if it appears it is acceptable, I'll watch other sports for a while. While I feel for the players, any attention a boycott or drop in ratings or revenue attracts to removing racism from the NBA is well worth it imo - fighting the acceptance of overtly racist employers is bigger than any team or playoff run.

      I hated him when he was a coach, but respect him as a man. He's fought racism and ignorance. Some things are more important than basketball. This is one of them.
