Ex-player: Sterling brought girls to locker room while players were showering

clippers-laNBA great and former LA Clippers executive Elgin Baylor revealed some interesting details of how Donald Sterling used to run his organization.

Baylor recalled Sterling’s inappropriate behavior towards his players.

According to ESPN, Baylor alleged earlier that Clippers’ owner would visit the locker room while players were showering.

“Players Sam Cassell, Elton Brand and Corey Maggette complained to me that Donald Sterling would bring women into the locker room after games, while the players were showering,” Baylor said.

“He would make such comments as ‘Look at those beautiful black bodies.’ I brought this to Sterling’s attention, but he continued to bring women into the locker room,” Baylor noted.

Former player later repeated these claims to CNN.

“[Sterling] did it on many occasions. ‘Oh, look at those beautiful black bodies.’ That’s what he used to say,” Baylor recalled.

“While the guys were in the shower and everything else. On several occasions, I told him not to. Players were mad and upset about it. I told him on several occasions, he kept doing it. Eventually it stopped.”

On April 25, 2014, TMZ Sports released what it said is an April 9, 2014 audio recording of a conversation between Sterling and his girlfriend or former girlfriend.

Sterling was recorded making racist and outrageous statements in the conversation. An NBA investigation, which included an interview with Sterling, determined the voice to be authentic.

Following the investigation, NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million after a firestorm of controversy.

The move was praised by many former NBA players, including Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Kevin Johnson and Charles Barkley.
