Motez Bishara on Yahoo Sports Radio Dissecting the Donald Sterling fallout / Kindle Countdown Deal Kickoff

Hello all!

Yesterday I was interviewed by the always terrific Elissa Walker Campbell for her Big E Sports show out of Houston on Yahoo Sports Radio.

We went over all the nail-biters in the first round of the NBA playoffs, but kicked off discussing the supercharged controversy involving Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Sterling’s racist rant caught on tape by his 20-something year old mistress was legitimate global news, on a viral level. The NBA came down hard on the 80-year-old, banning him from the league on every possible level (no attending any arenas, no communication with management, etc) and is pushing for a majority vote of fellow owners which would force him to sell. This is totally unprecedented in global sports (and even, perhaps, in every level of business).

My take on the Sterling scandal and more can be heard on this 11 minute segment

But that’s not all! I’m running a Kindle Countdown Deal that kicks off today at the low LOW price of $1.99 (US customers only, sorry). Access the Kindle purchase from here

Clippers – Warriors Game 7 is in LA tomorrow, promises to be a good one! Have a great weekend everyone.

In addition, Amazon Prime customers are eligible to rent it from the Kindle Lending Library for free for up to a month.

On top of that, here’s an interview I did with Fred Wallin, of KCAA radio in the greater Los Angeles area. His program, Sports Overnight America is syndicated in 200 markets that cover 48 states. Taped on June 21, I comment on the differences between Lakers and Clippers fans in LA, as well as the divide between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets.

Completely different lighting for Lakers games. Spotlight only on the players during warmups, Hollywood style.

Late and nary a scalper in sight

Bright lights for the Clips. This was our view.

People came to see only one player
