After racist reamrks caught on tape Los Angeles Clippders owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life from all NBA activities, been fined 2.5 million dollars, and will be forced to sell the team. Adam Silver made the decision before players had the chance to begin boycotting which they said they where about to do. Teams had been taking off warm up jackets in unison at half court and wearing there worm up shirts inside out in protest against these racist remarks.
Head Coach of the Los Angeles Lakers Mike D’Antoni’s contract had not been renewed and because of strong dislike he resigned from his job as Head Couch of the Lakers. Lets hope the Lakers can find a better Caoch to lead them to a better season.
This weekend is the NBA All-Star weekend. For those of you that don’t know what it is it’s a brake about two thirds of the way through the NBA season where all of the players get a break. There are also festivities like the dunk contest and the all star game with all the best players in one game. Tonight is the all star game. I’m supper excited because last nights events were pretty awesome.
NBA commissioner David Stern stepped down yesterday after thirty years in office. Adam Silver will take over as the fifth NBA commissioner. But David Stern memory will not be forgotten. Although David stern did much for the league like adding seven teams to the league he also is said to have not done all that he could have to make the NBA the best it could be. Most believe that with a new commissioner brings new possibility’s which hopefully includes less sleeved jerseys. Seriously the All-Star jerseys look more like regular t-shirts!!!
Good Lord it stinks in there yet it’s still one of my favorite places. Even though I always feel out of place since I don’t play football being in the locker room is still for some weird reason really fun! I share a locker with George and man can he open that locker fast. It takes like half the time for him then it does for me to open it. Also the showers feel really dogwood after running on the track sand lifting weights. The only thing do not like is that it’s so darn crowded.
