Donald Sterling, Clippers

Quibi has released the trailer for “Blackballed,” the powerful documentary series that examines race in America through the lens of the Donald Sterling saga and how the Los Angeles Clippers players and coaches dealt with it in 2014.

“Blackballed” highlights the five days during the 2014 NBA playoffs when Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers led an unprecedented movement of athletes to hold racism accountable, per the release of the trailer.

Chris Paul, Doc Rivers, DeAndre Jordan, Adam Silver, JJ Redick and some of the biggest names from the worlds of sports, politics, business and media will explain how they asserted their power, leading to the most definitive and unprecedented punishment in sports history.

It’s been six years since the Donald Sterling saga. He made the infamous, racist remarks that were leaked to the press. Every player, coach and employee on the Clippers was faced with the same question of how do you stand up in the face bigotry when the entire world is watching and everything is on the line.

This documentary will surely be one every Clippers fan watches.

Steve Ballmer owns the Clippers now. He’s turned the franchise into a first-class organization. The Clippers were in second place in the Western Conference standings before the 2019-20 season was suspended due to COVID-19.

California natives Kawhi Leonard and Paul Geroge are eager to lead the Clippers to their first title in franchise history whenever games are resumed.
