No officials from the Clippers could confirm the reports about Sterling, though.
Two of the Clippers were asked about Sterling late Thursday night following their 100-99 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series.
“I honestly didn’t know that,” All-Star power forward Blake Griffin said. “But if that is true, my thoughts and prayers are with him. Nobody deserves to go through something like that.”
All-Star point guard Chris Paul echoed the same sentiments.
“Yeah, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard of that,” Paul said. “That’s truly unfortunate.”
