Personal foul

Hey, some of my best players are black: The NBA moved quickly to ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, it said, because of racist comments he allegedly made in a recorded conversation in which he criticizes his girlfriend for appearing in photos with black men, including NBA great Magic Johnson. A top NBA official said he would try to force Sterling to sell the team.

If required to sell the Clippers, Sterling said he would look for new, friendlier, investments, like cattle ranching in Nevada with Cliven Bundy.

Trying to cut down: Police in Oregon City, Ore., are looking for a shoplifter who made off with hundreds of dollars’ worth of nicotine gum from a Walgreens.

The suspect is described as 6 feet tall, 150 pounds and was last seen desperately trying to keep a stick of gum lit.

They have a basketball team, don’t they? Hundreds of Western Washington University students marched in support of ethnic and cultural diversity and in defense of the college’s president, who warned recently that Western had to do more to encourage minorities to attend the Bellingham college. Currently, about 3 out of every 4 Western students are white.

“Or, I could just buy myself a college,” said Donald Sterling.
