    It's very harsh.
    He still owns the clippers. the NBA cannot force him to sell the franchise. They can ban him from games and or player involvement, but he still owns the clippers.
    they are trying to force him to sell but i don't see how they can do it legally.

    I'm not a big fan of hysterics. They all knew about this. It wasn't until TMZ blew the lid off that all of a sudden they're all outraged.
    Public Relations, it's all good until it's published.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    their assets maybe independent, but they are intrinsically linked. The health of one team benefits the league...just as one team doing poorly does. An NBA franchise is a sought after commodity amoung the super ego-rich. It does not lose value.

    the NBA would have no problem finding buyers at their franchise price. It's a club many would die for to get into.

    If he sells, we will see if it goes for market or way below.

    It's based upon surveillance law, same reason video voyeurism is a felony in many states. Taping a conversation is considered surveillance so without the appropriate license or a public domain defense expectation of privacy to the second party is considered present.

    The man is probably getting the short end of the stick here.
    I brought them up.

    How much do you think he's going to donate to them going forward? They gave him a lifetime achievement award in 2009 and were about to give him a second, even though all we keep hearing is how "everyone" knew what a racist he was. It wasn't until it was politically expedient that they, like the NBA, his team, his fellow owners and all of his players, tossed him aside with their faux outrage.

    It would all be funny, except for the fact that I still can't get past the idea that nobody seems to care about privacy anymore.
