    Donald Stern let this go on for far too long in all ways.
    You should be applauding a first-year commish.
    Don't think this is the end; it is a new beginning and your charges and others should be looked at.
    E$PN is currently talking of equally harsh penalties for players and coaches going forth ?

    It's harsh but from the press conference I just saw it's naturally all about money. Seems lots of sponsors pulled their support because of Sterling's statements. They probably needed to have someone tossed under the bus.
    Of course it's about the money. The NBA is a brand and the if the brand is damaged all owners suffer. It's why they have the laws in the first place.

    Remember when Isaiah Thomas said if Larry Bird was black, he'd be just another good player? Would that get him banned now, too? Does this apply to players for anything they say, too?

    Slippery slope, but here we are.
    Barkley's "But we are a black league" was also racist.

    I took it to mean "we are a league densely populated by blacks."

    Larry Johnson, on the other hand, needs to get his ass punished too.

    A bit more than I expected, but not too surprising. He was really hurting the brand over the last few days.

    I was at the gym doing high intensity interval training while watching the tube, I almost fell off the machine.

    He got his skull cracked, good. This is the free market at work, little or no? government involvement I believe, isn't this what we wanted? The relevant people involved in issues decide what is right and wrong?

    You wonder why right-wingers obsess so much over some old guy being called racist.
