Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged recorded rant tarnishes the NBA

There have been seven overtime games in the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs. Most contests have been competitive and exciting. This is the best week EVER for the NBA! Ok – you know better. There are so many public-relations angles to the Donald Sterling story that I didn’t know where to begin. […]
