They began the game huddled in a concrete hallway, arms locked, bodies swaying, desperately begging each other to stay united through the storm. "It's just us . . . only us . . . we're all we got!" They ended the game trudging through the same hallway in single file, heads down, eyes vacant, sighs heavy, their earlier hopes lost in the echoes of the silence. The Clippers tried. Oh, did they try. One day after being dragged into the center of national outrage with the release of an audio recording containing racist statements purportedly made by their owner, Donald Sterling, the Clippers tried to play through the storm.

Ratners Group PLC, Britain's biggest jewelry chain, is going for the lucrative U.S. market with its acquisition of Sterling Inc., a leading American retailer, Chairman Gerald Ratner says. "It represents a quantum leap--we're no longer just in a ($2.40-billion) market, we're now competing in a $22-billion market," Ratner said Friday. The group is buying Sterling for a little more than $200 million and has proposed a rights issue to raise about $200 million to fund the acquisition.

L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who for 30 years has presided over the city's second NBA franchise, became the object of national outrage and the target of an NBA investigation Saturday after allegedly making derogatory remarks about blacks. In an audio recording, released by celebrity gossip site TMZ, a person identified as Sterling argues with his girlfriend, criticizing her for posting a picture of herself on Instagram posing with Lakers legend Magic Johnson. "It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people," Sterling allegedly says, later adding, "I'm just saying, in your ... Instagrams, you don't have to have yourself with, walking with black people.

Jan Sterling, a blond beauty featured in film noir movies of the 1940s, '50s and '60s, died Friday at the Motion Picture and Television Fund home in Woodland Hills. She was 82. Friends said she had been in ill health recently after suffering several strokes and a broken hip. Sterling appeared in more than 40 motion pictures between 1948 and 1980, sometimes in starring roles but more often as a significant supporting character.

What we are really talking about here is the solemnly virtuous idea of thought control. Keep these dangerous ideas out of the heads of these impressionable "ladies" who will only use this yarn to weave destruction. If Carnes had been around to offer such sterling advice throughout thousands of years of literary history, she could have prevented at least half the novels, plays and sonnets from ever having to be written!

Re: "Forgive and Forget?" (July 17): Maybe the passage of years has softened his memory for some, but not I. To this very day, I am torn by the memory of my mother, weeping in helpless and frustrated anger as her friend, her proudly admired and infinitely respected friend, Helen Gahagan Douglas, drowned in the tide of lies that flowed so indifferently from Nixon's wicked lips, punctuated by those shifting, constantly closing eyes. That destroyer of lives and careers who could, in latter years, so blandly and uncaringly excuse his inexcusable actions on his "youth" is a memory better kept alive as we remain on guard.

In the midst of the Kings' hockey fever and the Lakers' title-clinching, the Clippers finished up business in Los Angeles with little reason to celebrate. Or so it would seem. The fans stood and cheered as the last-place Clippers battled the Seattle SuperSonics into overtime, only to lose, 139-136. Nevertheless, the Clippers, have been running and gunning with the best of them. The Clippers, who battled back from a five-point deficit with 38 seconds to play, sent the game into overtime when Ken Norman rebounded a missed shot by Xavier McDaniel, passed down court to Benoit Benjamin, who passed back to Norman under the basket for a layup.

A sharp government-induced hike in interest rates failed to jolt the British pound out of its record fall today and drew opposition accusations of government "incompetence and vacillation." Britain's Conservative government blamed the crisis on falling oil prices, high U.S. interest rates and lack of confidence brought on by critics demanding heavier expenditure on creating jobs.

OAKLAND -- Golden State Warriors fans are among the most boisterous in the NBA, and they weren't holding back when it came to the brouhaha involving Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Shortly after the Clippers walked onto the court for warmups before Game 4 of their first-round series at Oracle Arena on Sunday, a fan chanted, “KKK-Clippers!”, alluding to the racist remarks purportedly made by Sterling during a recent conversation with a female friend. Full coverage: The Donald Sterling controversy A voice that sounds like Sterling's can be heard in an audio recording released by TMZ telling his friend that he was upset she posted a picture on her Instagram account of herself next to Lakers legend Magic Johnson because he didn't want her to be associated with black people.

It's not uncommon for a business leader's personal and professional lives to intersect, but seldom does that happen as spectacularly as it has with Donald Sterling. The real estate magnate and Clippers owner's relationship with V. Stiviano, a woman his wife, Rochelle, alleges to be a money-grubbing seductress, appears to be related to the tape on which Sterling is alleged to make a raft of racist remarks. The recording purportedly is a conversation between Stiviano and Donald Sterling.

Dear Donald Sterling: Tell me when and where, and I'll come by for a chat. If the racist comments attributed to you by TMZ were actually made by someone else, here's your chance to clear the record. If your voice is the one we hear on the tape, but it's been edited misleadingly or there's some context for the comments that you'd like to explain, here's your chance. And if indeed that's you and it's really the way you think, might as well come clean now or this is going to drag on interminably.

Fully support commish Silver @NBA,” Kings owner Vivek Ranadive tweeted . Full coverage: The Donald Sterling controversy In a statement, Heat owner Micky Arison said Sterling's alleged comments were “appalling, offensive and very sad.” Spurs CEO Peter Holt adopted a more cautious tone, but noted Sterling's extended history of racial missteps.

As the Clippers faced off against the Golden State Warriors in an NBA playoff game Sunday, basketball fans and bystanders across Los Angeles grappled with the racist rant attributed to team owner Donald Sterling and shared their thoughts. At 1739 Public House in Los Feliz, bartender Curtis Swanson said Sterling had been known as a racist and slumlord for 35 years. He doubted anything substantial would come of the controversy because "he's got more money than the people yelling at him.” “I grew up in the Deep South and old money is always racist money,” Swanson, 38, said.

Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard C. Parks and his staff are drafting an official city resolution to condemn racist remarks attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling and push the NBA to make “appropriate sanctions.” Parks said such sanctions would be similar to those used against former Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott, who was repeatedly suspended from managing the baseball team in the '90s. The resolution, still being drafted Sunday afternoon, will also demand an apology to Magic Johnson and “the entire Los Angeles community,” back the decision by the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP to drop plans to honor Sterling, and ask local newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, to stop running ads for Sterling “that display his commercial real estate empire and his alleged civic activities.” “Sterling's actions are inconsistent with the United States human rights laws, the long-standing positions of the L.A. City Council, the diversity of the community, the fan base of the Clippers and the very high percentage of minorities who worked for and are working for the NBA,” Parks said in a statement Sunday.

In addition, Peter McKane, 45, a former executive at Western Gear Inc., replaced James C. Quibodeaux as chief financial officer.

Mr. Adande, before we go through an entire basketball season during which you explain to Times' readers how much you know about the game, it would be nice if you wrote a column acknowledging that your judgment is sometimes way off. Remember the column you wrote last season in which you said the Clippers would be fools if they didn't sign Maurice Taylor to a long-term, $14-million-a-year contract? Taylor can't rebound or play defense and even his scoring is mediocre. These attributes of his aren't new. He has played this way all through his short NBA career.

From President Obama to L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, there has been swift condemnation from political circles to a recording said to be of Clippers team owner Donald J. Sterling making remarks about blacks. "When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk," Obama said during a press conference in Malaysia. Sterling's alleged comments also met with criticism by L.A. officials.   Garcetti said through a spokesman Saturday that he condemns the "statements and sentiments" attributed to Sterling.  "These statements are offensive and despicable and have no place in Los Angeles.

A sign taped on the door of V. Stiviano's duplex near the Beverly Center on Sunday directed visitors to contact her attorney and further stated, "I have no comment. " A woman opened the door slightly and remained behind it while telling a reporter that she was getting ready to go to church and that she had to consult with her lawyer before speaking to the media. A flat-screen TV on the wall was tuned to a basketball game, and a tiny Yorkshire terrier yelped and bandied about. Another woman inside the house, wearing a pink hat with V. Stiviano written on it in white lettering, provided a flier with the attorney's phone number.
