    Re: Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Fined $2.5M and Banned for Life by NBA

    WOW!!!!!!!

    im surprised at the severity because i read LOTS of speculations and since the NBA constitution is private it was all rumor and leak stuff. But a lot of guesses were 1 million dollar fine and a year suspension.

    SO a life time suspension and 2.5 million dollars is surprising based on the previous rumors but at the same time not totally shocked. I thought it was going to be something hardcore and its merited.

    Not suspending him for life and trying to force him out really would hurt that franchise s long as he owned it and the NBA.

    I can understand the banning, but why the fine? The guy's messed up in his head, but he didn't cause physical harm or defame anybody.

    When the advertisers started lining up to defect from the NBA, I knew the ax would be swift and complete.

    The NBA gets very poor TV ratings already. Advertisers wouldn't think twice about jumping ship. They have the NBA by the short hairs.

    This decision was entirely about money.

    He is 80 something isnt he? I htink he can just appoint someone to run the team and still profit from it.

    He must still be allowed to own the team otherwise how could they fine him $2.5 million?

    How many rich billionaire boyfriends do you suppose this girl has in her future now? I'm guessing zero. She is rich guy poison now.

    Look, I like Barkley. He's a funny man. But it is not the first time he's said **** like this. He should get slapped for stupidity like the rest of us.

    Money is a legitimate concern, but it's not nearly the only concern.

    The question remaining.....what will Sterling do now?

    You know he knows where the bodies are buried on multiple fronts. He could fight this, and basically overrun the remainder of the playoffs with 24/7 talk about this decision.

    This may just be the beginning of the NBA's troubles with this.
