Elgin, you were one hell of a ballplayer and a very wonderful gentleman..........Now, it's time to step aside......... It's obvious Mr Baylor was a failure as GM, and it is time to have someone else run the asylum..........
Yah think someone is gonna call out the race card on this one??? Hmmmm

Mr. Baylor was not a failure. He was just not successful. That wasn't his fault working for an idiot like Donald Sterling. No race card here. I'm glad Elgin has left the Clippers, under any circumstances. He is a class act, has never said or done anything (that I know about) negative to his employer. The Lakers should welcome him with open arms and bring him back into the fold as a consultant, special assistant or some other position because when given an opportunity to contribute I know he will. Wouldn't it be great if Jerry West would come back in a similar situation too?

The team owner cannot fire himself for the sad fortunes and bad decisions of the franchise.
The only alternative is fire No. 2. This move serves no purpose. The Clippers problem is a team owner's interference with basketball decisions. Clipper have no upside potential with present ownership.

Mr.baylor was a failure he constantly made poor decisions on player personnel. Donald sterling gave him numerous years to get it right he unfortunately just did not make the clippers a winning team that being said elgin is a nice man that should just retire enjoy life!.

That is not true, Baylor did not have the freedom the West enjoyed with Mr. Buss.

Mr.Sterling always had Baylor on check.
Baylor did the best he could with what it was giving to him and he worked for peanuts when his salary is compare to the the other GMs in the league.

Mike D. suck at this back with bucks, I do not expect him to do any better now.

You mean to tell me a prune face with a jet black hair piece doesn't warrant daily doses of just for men. I fully understood the first dudes comments.I found that very amusing.

I don't think Baylor was failure as GM cause he was doing what he was told and he had to deal with a owner didn't give him money to offer to players.
I see it this way I do not expect anything to change unless, The owner complete changes his mentallity.
