4.30.14 Bee-otch of the Day: Donald Sterling AGAIN!

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on




Name: Donald Sterling
Age: 81
Occupation: real estate magnate, lawyer and owner of the Los Angeles Clippers
Last Seen: Los Angeles, CA
Bee-otched For: getting the boot
It's official: the most-hated man in sports has been given the boot.

Yesterday afternoon, NBA commish Adam Silver made the announcement that Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life. Sterling can no longer make business decisions, attend NBA games or participate in anything regarding his own team. NBA team owners will now decide if they want Sterling to bequeath his team or not.

Also yesterday afternoon, the Clippers posted simply three white words with a black background and an abbreviated version of the team's logo: WE ARE ONE.

Sterling was also fined $2.5 million for the racial outbursts that he made to girlfriend V. Stiviano that she recorded where Sterling criticized her for a picture of her standing next to NBA legend Magic Johnson and taking black people to Clipper games.

Without a doubt, Sterling is the most-controversial sports team owner since Marge Schott and her support for Adolph Hitler that caused her to lose managing control of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team from 1996 to 1998. Because of her unpopularity, she ended up selling the team in 1999. Racial slurs were a part of her vocabulary; often using terms such as "million-dollar n*ggers" to describe her baseball players.

Now that Sterling's no longer in control, time will only tell how the Clippers will do the rest of the playoffs or if the name "Clippers" is tarnished for good. Maybe now, Donald will use his time off from basketball to hang out with his precious sugar momma.
