    He owns a small percentage of the Sounders. They are primarily owned by Joe Roth and Drew Carey. They shared some administrative staff with the Seahawks, and that is the relationship that has ended.

    We live in hope. Highly unlikely, however, given the arena situations in the two cities.

    I'm surprised the NBA didn't push for a black owner.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No the NBA cannot force him to sell the team.

    I just read that he has been deemed mentally unfit to run the trust but that can be fought in court which.

    i wouldn't be so certain the legal requirements are a bit messy but there are things in the NBA that would still allow him to keep the team.

    But there's also this: http://msn.foxsports.com/college-foo...lippers-050114

    I will say though, if he doesn't sell, for $2 Billion, not only is he a racist, but an idiot as well.

    I thought he had money in on the Sounders.

    In any case, they are a damn well run team.
