Sunday's playoff game in Oakland between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers was overshadowed by the widespread outrage over racist comments purportedly made by Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The comments were contained in an audio recording released Friday by TMZ. A man identified as Sterling can be heard making several racially insensitive remarks to his girlfriend, including telling her she should not bring minorities to the team's games.
