    We might be the next victim to be ... banned for life from the NBA? Well, I can't shoot a lick anymore, so I guess that's the punishment I'll have to accept.
    Now if a corporation refused to hire blacks you would call that unconstitutional correct?
    Same concept applies to a corporation violating a person's right to property.

    Not necessarily unconstitutional, but it's a violation of labor law.

    Since when was "right to property" a constitutional concept?

    Nothing unfair, you want to own a team in the NBA, you have some rules to follow.
    And if you want to run a corporation in this country you have a few constitutional laws that you must follow.

    I think the courts have been lousy with franchise suits and case law and just because something is in a franchisee contract doesn't mean a court won't say it's unenforceable and unfair on its face.

    It is interesting you said that. My Sports Law professor emailed us this article saying I am sure we would find it interesting. It does a pretty good job explaining both side's legal arguments. Donald Sterling, NBA set for epic legal fight over Clippers - NBA - Michael McCann - SI.com

    Gotta love the NBA. Black players make racist remarks and they do nothing, white owner makes racist remarks ban him for life.

    I remember when the NBA had their theme song as, "Lets get retarded". They have clearly lived up to it here.

    I'm somehow starting to think you don't understand what the Constitution does.

    NFL thought the same way with Al Davis and the Raiders. Didn't work out so well. Sterling has a valid legal case the more I look at what happened. I think it will be fun to watch the old bastard screw with the NBA, if he decides to that is.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
