"We can't shame him just by simply saying don't do that anymore. It has to be severe enough so that he, or anyone who puts out those racial statements against people of color, so they can be dealt with appropriately. And not just a mere slap on the wrist."

"Since Sterling says he didn't want African Americans to show up at the games, I don't think any Americans should show up at the games. It would be such a powerful statement, if there were plenty of empty seats Tuesday night."

"NBA needs to step up. I don't know what they can do. They could probably fine him, they could probably suspend him. I know they can't take the team away from him. I don't know actually what they can or what they should do. I know I wouldn't play for him once this season is over."

"I don't know. As far as the guys though, the actual Clippers (players), I think they should continue playing. And I don't think they should let the owners thoughts affect what they're trying to do right now. And then I think they should just handle it after the playoffs are over."

"I hope it doesn't impact the Clippers in such a negative way because it seems like they're finally hitting their stride, they're finally kind of like rivaling the Lakers. There's this great stuff happening, a lot of positivity. And then you know, something like this has to happen. And it's a shame."

The NAACP has decided not to honor Donald Sterling with a lifetime achievement award from its Los Angeles chapter after the Clippers owner allegedly made racially charged comments in a recorded conversation.
Donations made by Sterling, who has owned the team since 1981, will be returned, Leon Jenkins, president of the Los Angeles NAACP, said at a news conference Monday. Jenkins wouldn't say how much money was involved.
Sterling, 80, had been slated to receive the honor on May 15 as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Los Angeles branch of the nation's oldest civil rights organization.
Sterling's purported comments urging a woman to not bring black people to his team's games have overshadowed the NBA's opening playoff round and prompted an NBA investigation. The NBA is planning a Tuesday (29 April) news conference to discuss the probe.
There still has been no official confirmation that Sterling is on the recording, portions of which were released over the weekend by TMZ and Deadspin.
The NAACP has honored Sterling several times in the past.
The Clippers had Monday off, with Head Coach Doc Rivers said he wanted his team to try and regroup mentally after a whirlwind weekend when Sterling's alleged comments were revealed.
Tuesday is shaping up as a potentially seismic day for the Clippers, in both the short and long term.
Rivers' team will host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, about eight-and-a-half hours after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is scheduled to speak, in a crucial Game 5 of the teams' Western Conference first-round series, knotted now at two games apiece.
Meanwhile, the Clippers are already taking hits in other ways over Sterling's alleged comments.
CarMax and Virgin America announced they are ending their sponsorships of the team, and Kia Motors America plans to suspend its advertising and sponsorship activities with the franchise.
Insurer State Farm said it "will be taking a pause in our relationship with the organisation," though the popular ad campaign featuring Clippers guard Chris Paul will continue, as will the company's initiatives with the NBA.
Several team owners have condemned the alleged remarks in recent days, including Charlotte's Michael Jordan, Miami's Micky Arison, Washington's Ted Leonsis and Indiana's Herb Simon.
Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, the saga surely will continue.
And if Sterling is suspended, someone would have to be appointed to run the team, if even on an interim basis.
Plus, there are numerous legal issues at play, including whether the recording was legally made and the matter of Sterling's wife suing the woman purported to be on the tape with Sterling.
NAACP National Board Member Ron Hasson and concerned citizens gave their thoughts on the racist comments purportedly made by Sterling, on Monday in Los Angeles.
