New ‘Blackballed’ Documentary Shows The Importance Of Athletes Speaking Up — Forbes

Via Forbes — Blackballed, a 12-part documentary that debuts May 18 on Quibi, takes viewers through the build-up and aftermath of Donald Sterling’s racist remarks in 2014. At the time, Sterling was the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, a franchise hoping to break through the NBA’s Western Conference after years of tribulation. TMZ released a tape recording of Sterling speaking to his mistress, V. Stiviano, in which he ripped her for publicly broadcasting her interactions with African Americans.

The first three installments of the film are now available, with a new episode dropping daily until the series is complete. In total, Blackballed is 91 minutes (7.6 minutes per video) and features interviews from various members of the 2013-14 Clippers, including Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan, Matt Barnes and JJ Redick.
