How come Harvey Levin and TMZ didn't include the part of the Sterling tape that Deadspin did today?

It would be so funny if by chance it all ends up being a fake recording...what kind of apology would the players and every person who has commented on this would give.

Hey Harvey, during the audio recording, he mentions getting called out about the posting on Instagram. Who called him out? You should expose his "friends" too. Who is he ashamed will find out. It's obvious he is getting crap from someone who also feels this is a shame! EXPOSE THEM ALSO!! They deserve it!

lol this is great. They are "mad" so they throw their shirts on the ground? lol how about you step up and don't play? Oh thats right, because $$$$$$$$$$ is more important than the cause you are standing up against! What a joke Clippers, grow some balls and actually stand up for your cause!

lol, why to sand up for your cause! Clearly money is more important to the players than standing up for something important. They deserve to be owned by a racist, just keep your head down and keep working, just like the old days!

If they wanted to show their displeasure with the owner, they should have done so before taking the court. They get paid to play basketball, not to act like Douchebags. The thing about these thugs is that they want to get outta the hood but they still wanna act like like the piece of trash that they was before they was famous.

And all you can do is throw your jackets on the floor and turn a few jerseys inside out? Wow!! What a bold statement of defiance! I suppose those paychecks won't make it worth the effort to leave and go for something better? Damn the money and fortune! It's not worth working for any ignorant racist prick whose disrespectful of a race of beautiful black brothers and sisters that still struggle with race to this day after all these years to this day! I wouldn't accept anything else from the bastard so he could hold it over me in the future. Forget it and quit it! I say!!!
