Sponsors End Relationship With Los Angeles Clippers

Things just keep worse for the Los Angeles Clippers. After losing in Game four to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, the Los Angeles team also lost big sponsorships due to the allegations of owner Donald Sterling’s recent comments about race that went viral this past Friday.

CarMax, an automobile company released a statement to the Huffington Post.

“CarMax finds the statements attributed to the Clippers’ owner completely unacceptable. These views directly conflict with CarMax’s culture of respect for all individuals,” a CarMax spokeswoman wrote in an email to HuffPost. “While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for 9 years and support the team, fans and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship.”

State Farm Insurance proceeded to do the same yet mentioned they would still work with point guard Chris Paul.

Will the Clippers be able to bounce back from this situation and do you think it will have any effect on them during the playoffs?
