    What happens when the shoe is on the other foot? Like Cuban said, "Slippery slope" "Who's next?"
    "You and yours"? How about the NBA? The league was facing a full on walkout from players over this. The players are the product.

    I highly suspect that in itself was a criminal act.
    It bothers me too, and I have no doubt it was a criminal act.

    What happened? A man said some stupid things?

    Yeah they're going to walk away from millions of dollars because some old guy said some ugly words. Trust me, they've heard it all before.

    Hell Sterling didn't even use the infamous *N* word.

    I did hear someone say the Black players should form an all-black league with all-black owners. How's that for diversity and fairness?

    People telling their significant others who they prefer they hang out with or not hang out with also happens every day. But from here on in, it's okay to publicly vilify those people, all in the name of capitalism which the left is enthusiastically supporting all of a sudden.

    Actually, he did. Once, in 1983. No, I'm not kidding. It's in some list that some loon is keeping of Sterling's transgressions against black people.

    NBPA vice president Roger Mason Jr., says players were ready to boycott if Donald Sterling wasn't banned - ESPN

    According to the VP of the players' union, all six teams scheduled to play last night were ready to stand down unless the NBA took decisive action.

    This is a purely secondhand anecdote, so take it with a grain of salt: A friend I work with is friends with the Warriors' beat writer, and before the penalty was handed down, both teams (Warriors and Clippers) were ready to do warmups, line up for the opening tipoff, and walk off the court in protest. Sterling's words struck a major nerve with the players.

    And **** Larry Johnson for saying that. That said, he's not a guy who has people's livelihoods in his racist hands.

    OK, tres. Put yourself in the NBA's shoes. What would you have done if you were Adam Silver?

    It's been happening for some time now. I keep going back to what Mark Cuban said about "who's next"
