    Same here...I am really surprised.

    Way too harsh, imo...but in today's PC America, probably a smart financial decision.

    So you have no support of your claim, you're basing it on your gut feeling. Okay.

    I'm sure it is his voice. I'm asking when he said it was, and where he was when he said it.
    Don't know when he said it (time frame wise), but it was said here:

    Sterling admitted it was his voice on the recording, but expressed no remorse for the remarks, Silver said.

    thats very possible, the commissioner cant just take his team so thats a no go but they can try to force him out.

    They have legal options, one i was reading about all the owners or majority owners simply saying they dont want to work with him or be associated with him so using that legality to force hi out but it would be costly if he fought it.

    Who knows what will happen but if he stays owner thats bad for his franchise and the NBA so im sure even if he is bought out he wont be an owner for long.

    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.
    That will be interesting.

    He likes to sue people.

    How would any of us feel having to pay 2.5 million and losing rights to your personal property for something you said in private?

    The commish said Sterling showed no remorse over the phone.
    But by all means, shoot that message.
    And the commish is lining up the owners to force him to sell .

    Its not about supporting Sterling, its about free speech. In no way should he be fined for something he SAYS in his personal time while not being involved with the team at all. Why people love to throw their liberties away is beyond me. This doesn't just stop at high level owners and execs.

    Sterling is an obvious douche, but again he is entitled his opinion and beliefs. He is an 80 year old entitled white guy. Things were WAAAY different when he was in his teens and growing up. Culture has changed a lot in the last 60 years, no? Its not like he was stating this over a press conference. Look at the same situation with Cliven Bundy. He is now being slammed for "wondering".

    If you are white, you cannot have an open discussion about race without being called a racist, bigot, etc. Plain and simple. Great for progression.
