    So it is your opinion that it has been right-wingers who are obsessed with this case?

    Well, if you are 80 years old I'm sure she looks great.

    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.
    HAHA she is toxic now.

    I find it interesting that they did this without ever giving him a chance to weigh in on it, and at the word of his (pissed off) ex-spouse. Whatever happened to "innocent until proven guilty", I wonder.

    So now I'm sure they will ban & fine everyone who says anything in private that hurts someone's feelings going forward, yes? They don't ban & fine the people who commit crimes, we know that much. I guess sticks & stones no longer break bones, but names really do hurt people.

    Meanwhile, Sterling will laugh his way to the bank, and probably be the silent partner (and funder) in another major league sports purchase, with a lot of winking & nodding going on behind the scenes.

    I'll bet his donations to the NAACP & underprivileged will dry up now too.

    What an immense overreaction. I thought appropriate would be about a million and suspension for the rest of the playoffs.

    This was an appeal to public opinion, all of which are emotional and not even close to rational.

    This may just be the beginning of the NBA's troubles with this.
    If I were him, I'd sing like a canary. He probably knows a lot. Been the owner, what, 33 years?

    Public opinion says he sucks and a very large majority of those involved with the NBA agree. Old right-wing white men are not the most important demographic here.

    I could sue just out of spite. He has a net worth high enough that he could spend $500 million on a law suit and still be a billionaire. He could really make the NBA hurt if he wanted to.

    If I were his adviser I would point out to him, however, that he has billions of dollars and maybe 10 years left to enjoy it.. it might not be the best decision to spend that time in a court room.
