    The NBA Constitution and Bylaws is not a public document. There is a 2009 version available online, but that is not necessarily the latest version. Hence, there is no assurance that the League does not have more latitude than what that older document suggests. Moreover, Congress could put the league in a position of forcing the issue by removing some of the broad protections the league enjoys e.g., anti-trust exemptions.

    Given the risks of litigation, my guess is that a suspension and fine would be most likely. But to be meaningful, the suspension would have to accomplish de facto what his removal from the league would. That would mean a suspension at least on the order of 5-10 years, if not longer. MLB once imposed an indefinite suspension and it has imposed lifetime bans. If the NBA verifies the authenticity of the recording, it should act very forcefully given the enormous and long-term damage Mr. Sterling could impose on the NBA and its global brand (loss of talent, loss of revenue, etc.).

    Separately, the hateful nature of his alleged remarks is not something the NBA or any credible business entity should tolerate.

    Not only that he misses Freeman's point on the NEED for a Black History Month.

    As a long time NBA fan, this is not surprising to me. Sterling has always been a real POS. What is up with her recording private conversations though? I was under the impression that Cali was a 2-party consent state.

    It is a 2-party consent state. The gold digger broke the law a bit in her effort to extort money out of her old boyfriend.

    So, you believe that in 2010, the NBA may have changed their constitution to allow an owner to be forced to sell their team if they offend someone. Possible... I guess... But very unlikely.

    Such a mess. No matter how this ends up playing out, it's still a giant mess.

    If nothing happens, a lot of fans are upset and attendance will probably drop, Clippers players are upset and probably won't resign, team sponsors are lost, the entire league has egg on it's face. On the other hand, if the other owners allow a huge fine/suspension or use other means to try and force him out, they are setting a dangerous precedent that could someday come back to bite THEM if they ever say something non-PC.

    I also have to wonder how that would play out legally if they tried. Seems to me that some serious anti-trust stuff could come into play... I mean come on... A group boycott among competitors who collectively have monopoly power, to force another competitor out of business?... that seems super sketchy.

    Very unfortunate all around. That team is finally winning and is fun to watch, and now this threatens to put them right back where they have been for decades.
