Sanders had three years remaining on a $44 million contract. He left around $21 million on the table in the buyout.

[video] Donald Sterling was 100% Correct : “African Americans Get Successful and Don’t Wanna Help Their Own People”

Donald Sterling is a racist. I think that is the consensus across the board from anyone with a half a brain who heard the infamous taped conversations between him and V. Stiviano released a couple of weeks ago to TMZ. But listening to his interview with Anderson Cooper, I have come to realize that the media portrayal that he is some senile crazy rich old man, spewing age old thoughts on race, is a facade created by the mainstream media to shield that systematic racism is alive and well in 2014.

After being pretty much a nonexistent voice concerning issues in Black America, Michael Jordan finally comes out and makes a bold statement against Donald Sterling.

“I look at this from two perspectives – as a current owner and a former player. As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly. As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA – or anywhere else – for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed…. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level.”
