It’s good to see current NBA players speaking out on the Donald Sterling remarks, especially the leagues best player, LeBron James.
Less than an hour before the Miami Heat game against the Charlette Bobcats started, comments on Donald Sterling’s racist comments.
Speaking to the media, James stated that Sterling’s comments were “unacceptable” if they were in fact true. James then implied that Sterling needs to leave the NBA:
Basketball is huge, obviously the playoffs have been unbelievable, and I hate the fact that something like this has to come out when the playoffs have been unbelievable and the game of basketball continues to grow, but there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league. There is no room for him.
For a player, I just think…I put my…I can only imagine if a player came out and said something of that stature what would happen to us as players. So, I believe in Adam [Silver], I believe in the NBA and they have to do something and do something very fast and quickly before this really gets out of hand.
