0426-keith-olbermann-tmz-01The L.A.. Clippers should BOYCOTT the playoffs ... and refuse to step on the court until the NBA takes action against Donald Sterling ... so says Keith Olbermann. 

Olbermann went to Twitter this morning -- after TMZ Sports posted audio of the Clippers owner telling his GF not to bring black people to his games -- and railed against Sterling. 

"time for #Clippers players to step up. Refuse to play till NBA moves against this racist jackass #Sterling. NBA can't defend him.'

Olbermann also notes, "I was banned by the #Clippers for criticism of the front office - in 1986. This made me the envy of every other LA sports media person."

Fans should also boycott games and support the players. Or ticket holders should give their tickets to black people and fill each and every seat with a person of color. Sterling will have an aneurysm!

The NBA won't do anything drastic because the entire operation is owned and run by Jews.

Its so sad that in 2014 there is still racism. It hurts me to see someone in my white race think they are superior to another race. When will it stop?

What the hell does it have to do with Keith Olbermann?? It is his team and his relationship. I'm not saying what he did was right in any way.

Unfortunately, racism is alive and well (or unwell) in America.

Yeah people are going to jepordize multi million dollar contracts because their boss is an ass.I am sure the players union prohibits them from doing so and that disputes have to be resolved through other channels.
No i don't agree with Sterling but know there is a reality as to what can be done

I agree people keep saying it's his opinion. You own a business you can't afford to have opinion like that especially when all your players are black people have no common sense

The full audio is on Huffington Post. I don't condone anything this old fool says, but you have to ask why his bimbo was recording their private conversation. Her comments and questions are clearly leading. As for Clippers players -- they need to play for each other and for Doc Rivers -- not Donald Sterling. Rivers is in charge, he made sure of that when he signed on -- and the players and fans should not be penalized because of the owner's bigoted ideas.

When will ignorant-ass racist white people learn to STFU ? So it looks like the Massa Sterling's new plantation is the Staple Center and he has "****a" Griffin and CP "****e" doing "pick-n-roll" instead of "pick'n cotton" every black person on the team should show up on the next home game and have a picnic by the Magic Johnson Statue and refuse to enter the building
