Previously documented through The Sterling Affairs for ESPN's 30 for 30 podcast strand, this small screen dramatization has been created and co-written by Gina Welch. 

At the heart of Clipped is the relationship between two men – the Clippers' coach Doc Rivers (played here by Laurence Fishburne) and owner Donald Sterling (Ed O'Neill). Set in 2014, while Rivers was managing his roster to on-court success in a .695 regular season, Sterling's extra-marital activity and recorded racial slurs were about to lead the franchise to ignominy off it.

If you don't already know the story, Sterling's brazen mismanagement is jaw dropping stuff. As is how the two women in his life – wife Shelly Sterling (Jacki Weaver) and assistant-slash-mistress V. Stiviano (Cleopatra Coleman) – each played their part in one of the biggest scandals to hit the NBA this century.

And if you do know it... well, sit back and enjoy the fireworks! Keep reading to discover how to watch Clipped online and from anywhere.
