Good morning, here's another horrible Donald Sterling lawsuit

That plus more links in Tuesday's NBA newsletter.

Good morning. Let's basketball.

BORN READY TO TRIP: Ricky O'Donnell on Lance Stephenson's penchant for getting in his own way.

THE FOREIGN LEGION: Kirk Goldsberry on the international flavor of the Spurs. Plus, netw3rk on everyone's favorite dynasty.

MORE HORROR: If you want some vomit-inducing morning reading, check out the new lawsuit against Donald Sterling from a former employee/lover.

POPE OF NBA COACHING: Nice Rolling Stone piece on Gregg Popovich.

'LE BATARD RANT' IS A THING: This time, it was on the Pacers.

RELATED: The Pacers went all-in and failed. Now what?

CATS AND DOGS: Fans are cynical and pessimistic or hopeful and optimistic. Over the next year and change, we'll find out what kind of fans Oklahoma City has.

ALL DEFENSE TEAMS! James Harden got two votes, so you know it's good.

RISING TIDE: Interesting discussion of how much the Kings would now sell for given the huge Clippers price.

SO MUCH BOWER: The Pistons have hired Jeff Bower to do Stan Van Gundy's daily front office bidding.

GOOD IDEA, DON: Donald Sterling visits a predominantly black churck on Sunday.

WHOOPS: Phil Jackson apparently talked about Derek Fisher a little too early and got himself fined.

HE'S DONE: Shane Battier has reportedly cut a deal to be an ESPN analyst next season.

COURT TIME: Here's everything you need to know about O'Bannon vs. NCAA: The Trial, set to begin June 9. Oddly, if the justice is served in the form of payment to players, that could give the NBA wider berth in its attempts to extend the age minimum to 20 or even 21.

CRUSHING: A six-year-old boy, Prince Joshua Avitto, is dead after being stabbed to death in the elevator of the public housing building in which he lived. The boy's cousin is Taj Gibson. Prince's seven-year-old friend Mikayla Capers is in critical condition. The New York Times reports that the elevators of New York's public housing projects have long been dangerous, and that residents have agitated for surveillance cameras. The New York Housing Authority has allocated $60 million to elevator surveillance, but the building that young Prince died in hasn't had any installed.

See you next time.
