We've said this before, but it's worth repeating: Donald Sterling is a terrible person who gets away with being a terrible person in an oh-so-image-conscious league for the simple reason that he owns a basketball team instead of plays for one.
It's also worth noting again that if a small forward did half the shit Sterling has done — if, for instance, he mused, "Is she one of those black people that stink?" or if he testified in court, "It was purely sex for money, money for sex, sex for money, money for sex," or if he asked a woman in his employ to find him a masseuse "who will, you know, let me put it in or who [will] suck on it," or if the businesses he ran subscribed to practices that'd embarrass the Greensboro Woolworth's lunch counter — he'd be looking for a game in the Upper Bosphorus right now.
All of which is to say that this latest, which finds Donald Sterling taunting his own point guard from his courtside seat (possibly pictured here), is almost quaint. Sweet, even. He called Baron Davis fat. He questioned his shot selection. The fact that he is being a dick to an employee without propositioning, sexually harassing, or racially discriminating against him counts as significant progress.
