Ex-Clippers GM: Sterling Liked Showing Off ‘Beautiful Black Bodies’ in Locker Room

Elgin Baylor, a former NBA player and general manager for the L.A. Clippers, spoke out on CNN tonight about Donald Sterling and what he knows about Sterling’s racist past. Baylor revealed to Anderson Cooper that Sterling used to bring women into the locker rooms to show off the bodies of the African-American players.

Baylor sued Sterling back in 2009 for wrongful termination and accusing Sterling and others of discriminating by both age and race. Baylor said in the lawsuit that Sterling said he had a “vision of a Southern plantation-type structure” for the Clippers.

On CNN tonight, his wife Elaine Baylor said that Sterling isn’t “running around with a white robe on,” but he’s very clear about what he wants and what his views are. Cooper brought up the lawsuit and how it referenced Sterling bringing the women into the locker rooms.

Baylor explained it was to show off the players’ “beautiful black bodies” while some of the players were in the showers. He said he complained and it eventually stopped, though.
