Ramona Shelburne sounds off on ‘The Sterling Affairs’
The host and reporter of the multipart series gives listeners a peek behind the scenes
The latest season from 30 for 30 Podcasts, The Sterling Affairs, reported and hosted by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, is a story of power and scandal in Los Angeles. When an audio recording of a racist rant by LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling was leaked online, it caused an uproar that changed the NBA forever. But Sterling had been a problem for decades — in basketball, real estate and more.
Featuring original in-depth interviews with Sterling’s wife, Shelly Sterling, NBA commissioner Adam Silver, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, legendary Clippers announcer Ralph Lawler, National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts, and NBA players Andre Iguodala and Blake Griffin, among others, the podcast explores how a domestic drama finally boiled over to put the NBA in crisis.
