    If you think they have already done this, then name the customer that the NBA has banned to protect its' image



    Sterling is not a customer; He's an owner and he signed a contract agreeing to be bound by the commissioner's decisions.

    And if he sells the team, I think he would be free to attend games but I'm not certain of the terms of the agreement he signed with the NBA (ie no one is)
    A business can ban anybody it likes... it happens in bars and restaurants most often. Public pools. Libraries. Etc. It can happen in the NBA.

    This is true, but it's not all gravy - for the first 20 some years he owned the team, first in San Diego and then in LA, he was losing money and only since getting a new arena deal about 6 years ago did he start making operating profits. As a result, the cost of the team is greater than the initial $12 million, both in money injected into the franchise and opportunity lost value resulting from not having that money to use on other investments. He's obviously done quite well - I just wanted to counter the magnitude of the claims.

    Absolutely it will, or he'll sue the league blind for collusion.

    I could provide others, but I'll let you do the research if you'd like. Point is, as I stated, the NBA could ban Spike Lee from its games/facilities for racism detrimental to the image of the game - the same principle under which Sterling is being banned.
    Nope

    Flo Rida was banned for his behavior at one of the games; not for something he said while not at a game.

    Yes, it can. It can get a Ban and Bar Notice or a No Trespass Notice (depends on terminology of area) that enables police to legally remove anybody on that Notice from the business.

    Did Sterling say or do something at a Clippers game?
