By now we recognize that Donald Sterling’s filter seems permanently set to off. In a recent ESPN article, Ramona Shelbourne recounts a story were Sterling tried to get make a joke and get his All-Star point guard Chris Paul caught up in the process.
At a Clippers playoff party, Sterling called Chris Paul on stage and jokingly said, he didn’t understand how CP3 could be married in LA with all the beautiful women. Paul’s wife Jada was in the audience.
Sterling brought Paul up on stage with him. He asked for a round of applause for the point guard who had elevated the franchise to a new level, then joked, “Why is this guy married? Look at all the beautiful women in L.A.” Paul’s wife was in the audience. He smiled uncomfortably and said, “Because I love my wife.”
Look at Donald trying to get Chris Paul over to his way of thinking. Let Chris Paul be great with his wife.
Other Sterling oddities; when at dinner, ordering for everyone at the table and then eating off of their plates. Trying to coax Clippers players into getting a lap dance from a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, and of course who can forget when he brought people into the locker room following games and commented on all the “beautiful black bodies.“
