Well, that’s what the Clippers are trying to the public think, especially with team president Andy Roeser going on Fox Sports Prime last night to explain just that. However, Donald T. Sterling may still need some time to put coach Mike Dunleavy’s harsh words behind him.
We can only really speculate on Sterling’s true feelings because he has repeatedly refused interview requests this week. There certainly are some divided members in the organization on various issues. Is that natural? Perhaps. But a lot of this stuff is carrying into the press, and that ain’t pretty.
In another Clipper note of interest, Clipper Darrell — the boisterous fan with a half red and half blue suit — indeed is mulling over a job offer to become Maverick Darrell.
Just when you might think things can’t get any weirder in the NBA world and Clipper world, how bizarre would it be to see Darrell get up and move to Dallas and cheer for a different team? I can’t possibly see that happen. But who knows? Weird stuff is happening practically every day in the kooky world of professional basketball.
