    I honestly don't remember. I think that is what set the league off, but IIRC they got her for a general morals clause violation.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I dont think they took the team away from him. Just banned him from games. Lots of buisness owners have never stepped foot in one of their buisness. Might run better that way, Clippers have always sucked.

    Prolly exactly what happened. Al Sharpton was on his trail. He wouldn't have let this one go.

    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.
    I don't think this is bad for the NBA. They need the attention, their ratings are awful. I tuned in to the game the other night, and I haven't watched an NBA game in years.

    To which they could argue, the of the value of the Clippers had already been injured with the revelation, and that their their team's values was in jeopardy of also being injured if they did not act to protect their assets.

    Their assets are independent. When you force a sale, you destroy value. That's why you get things for pennies on the dollar when they're attached to divorce, bankruptcy, destitution, etc.
