After the Los Angeles Clippers big man Montrezl Harrell’s racial remark to the Dallas Mavericks point forward Luka Doncic in Game 3 of their NBA playoffs best-of-7 series on Friday, Outkick columnist Gary Sheffield Jr. shared his thoughts on the issue:

“LA Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell and Dallas Mavericks Slovenian star Luka Doncic got into a scuffle last night that ended with Harrell calling Doncic a ‘b***h a*s white boy.’

The solution here is simple, even if many won’t like it: the NBA has to suspend Montrezl Harrell and send a message that race-based derogatory comments like his on the basketball court won’t be tolerated. The NBA has already set this precedent with gay slurs on the court, why not with racial-based insults as well?

Montrezl Harrell’s comments have already spawned a million ‘If the races were reversed’ conversations on social media and there is no doubt that if Luka had referred to Montrezl Harrell as a ‘b**** a** black boy,’ that the social media condemnation would have rained down from the heavens on Luka.

In fact, Luka would probably be suspended for the remainder of the season. He would be crushed, a social pariah in all of sports,” Sheffield wrote.
