Donald Sterling To David Stern: 'I Would Fire You'

No one much likes Clippers owner Donald Sterling.^ Mark Heisler of the Los Angeles Times presents a killer Sterling moment from a meeting of NBA owner held by league commissioner David Stern a few years ago. Sterling, recently accused of taking girlfriends into the Clippers' locker room as players were showering and commenting to the women about the "beautiful black bodies," is terrible, especially at labor relations. That especially means something here, because Sterling is terrible at many things.

But you know what? Sterling has some protips for Stern. According to Heisler, after Stern insisted he wanted Sterling's input on some matter, the Clippers owner unloaded.

OK, I would fire you. You're great at marketing, but you're not tough enough with the union.

Donald Sterling doesn't think David Stern is tough enough on NBA players. Sigh. I can't wait for Sterling's forthcoming business leadership book, How to Make Your Employees Feel Like the Scum They Are.
