Ironic that the NBA owners did to sterling what sterling was asking his GF to do because of pressures. Business does not like controversy and scandal...it's bad for business.
He has a slam-dunk anti-trust suit against the NBA now. They effectively destroyed the fair market value of the Clippers.
Beign forced to no longer own the Clippers seems like it would be more a blessing than a curse. Good on em for the 'sentence'. Now we can all get back to ignoring the NBA like most people do.
As I said in the other thread, the fine is okay... guy's got more money than god anyway... but the rest is overkill. The guy didn't turn into racist scum overnight. Everyone who knew him, including the NBA officials, knew exactly what he was. Now that are basically taking his team away and banning him for life for being something that he has always been, and quite openly been at that. It's just political expediency, or perhaps they hated his guts for years and finally had the excuse to stick it to him.
I dunno. I won't be losing any sleep over it. The guy is racist scum.
The NBA set itself apart 13 years or so ago when they found that kind of person acceptable to play in their league.
