It's all a power thing, Sterling is trying to show he's the top dog here dealing with a peasant. What a terrible man, but hey I'm about to fly out to L.A., I'd be the Clippers GM for 3,000 a month...
$3,000 a month for a high stress job for an a-hole owner seems awfully low. thats less than a trash man makes.
but yeah, he is belittling baylor's accomplishments. he didn't think he was just hiring some guy from a mail order company to be an NBA GM. i'd like to see the whole transcript but it seems way out of context.
