The NBA has hired Richard Lapchick to help Donald Sterling go away.
This is a good thing.
No, make that a great thing.
Sterling is like the crazy, eccentric uncle no one wants anything to do with at the family picnic. Only he has boatloads of money, power, influence and the keys to an NBA franchise.
This is not a good thing.
Enter Lapchick, the ubiquitous “conscience of sports” who is also the director of the University of Central Florida’s Institute of Diversity and Ethics in Sport.
