Former Los Angeles Clipper Dominique Wilkins recently told a sad but true story about former owner Donald Sterling basically letting David Robinson win the 1993-94 scoring title over Shaquille O’Neal.

(via VladTV):

“I remember at the end of the year, we’re playing against the San Antonio Spurs. Bob Weiss came in the locker room. He said, ‘Look, I want y’all to get along, but I’ve been told to take all you guys out after the first four minutes of the first quarter.’ And I’m like, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘Donald Sterling wants to see David Robinson keep the scoring title in the West. He didn’t want Shaquille [O’Neal] to get it in the East.’ I said, ‘Last time that I checked, neither guy plays on our team. Who cares!’ And so yeah, took us out four minutes to start the game, and David Robinson had 71.”
