ESPN anchor makes reference to Donald Sterling ‘owning’ Doc Rivers

Sometimes, you should just quit while you’re ahead. Or just stop talking.

ESPN anchor John Anderson was anchoring SportsCenter  Tuesday following Adam Silver’s announcement that the league was banning Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life. Before Tuesday night’s game against the Warriors, Clippers coach Doc Rivers made himself available to the media to answer questions about Sterling.

Once Rivers finished his time with the press, SportsCenter tossed back to Anderson at the desk. Anderson— trying to simply point out that Rivers was making his comments hours after the team’s owner had been banned — instead reference Sterling as River’s owner. Innocent enough.

Anderson didn’t mean anything by it. Instead of moving on and hoping he didn’t offend anyone watching, Anderson referenced his “poor choice of words,” and then couldn’t get Donald Sterling’s name correct.

“So Doc Rivers, got a game to coach but still giving the media 15 minutes on the day when his owner, at least the team owner, probably a bad choice of words there…his…the the the the franchise owner Donald Stern…Donald Ster…Sterling…Adam Silver, Dollered Sterling was banned for life effective immediately, can no longer be associated with the Clippers franchise or the NBA…”

Sportsgrid noticed the flub Wednesday afternoon by way of Reddit.
