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.
