LeBron James is appalled by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. LBJ says he’s not sure if he would suit up for the remainder of the NBA playoffs if he played for the Clippers.
“There’s no room for Donald Sterling in the NBA – there is no room for him,” says LeBron.
“Obviously, if the reports are true it’s unacceptable in our league,” James said. “It doesn’t matter, white, black or Hispanic – all across the races it’s unacceptable. As the commissioner of our league they have to make a stand. They have to be very aggressive with it. I don’t know what it will be, but we can’t have that in our league.
LeBron continued, “We’re the model citizen of all sports around the world because we are the most recognizable figures. … It’s very disrespectful and it’s appalling.”
