Donald Sterling started fighting to maintain ownership of the Clippers on a third front this week with another lawsuit alleging he is still the rightful owner of the team. It’s anticipated that advertisers could begin to pull ads and Clippers CEO Dick Parsons testified in court that he fears coach Doc Rivers probably won’t want to continue coaching next season if Sterling still owns the team when the season starts.

The Clippers players are contractually obligated to keep playing, but should Doc Rivers refuse to coach the team? And are there other things the players can do to voice their opposition?
