    It's not punishment. It's the necessary outcome of a douchebag being discovered. He did harm to the NBA, I don't blame the organization for pushing back as hard as possible.

    They're billionaires. They don't lack the means to find chicks.

    However, they know that invoking morals clauses means that they can never be caught with a 16 year old girl or doing coke off a hooker's tit.

    I don't like his racist remarks, but it looks like the leftwing thought-nazis won out again. Sieg Heil!!! Sieg Heil!! Let's round up the haters and shoot them all, throw them in gas chambers and them cook them in ovens. What's next, loyality oaths? Let's just become the USSR we destroyed and turn each other in to the Fatherland. Stupid ****s.

    I don't know. Should there be difference in how a player is punished and how an owner is punished? Are there different dynamics at play?

    I don't know actually how I feel about it at the moment, other than the fact that I think Sterling is a racist, POS.

    The NBA can do what they want. They have a brand to protect, and that brand is popular in the black community. If there's the idea that the owners are racist, that really doesn't help them in that respect. They have the right not to associate themselves with that.

    Maybe in your "AHHHHH...Lefties" panic you forgot about that. I do think it was a bit harsh, but they had to impose some consequences.

    Oh, come on. People aren't suggesting that legal action be taken against him. He can say whatever the hell he wants, but the First Amendment never sheltered someone from consequences, outside of legal action.

    Exactly. It's a goddamn PR nightmare.

    Sterling's punishment is over the top. And those who judged him are the biggest hypocrites of all for they all knew the guy had a problem with racism from previous issues. So if everyone knew why didn't the black players on his team go someplace else? The other day Larry Johnson made a public statement just as racist as those Sterling made in private. Johnson is calling for an all black team. He claims black players are the slaves to white owners. The last contract Johnson signed was for 84 million over 10 years. Not to forget all the millions in selling shoes etc. So when can we expect Johnson to be punished for his over the top racist remarks? This story is a gold nugget for race baiters who like to claim we are still living in the Jim Crow era and for all the Larry Johnson's who see their white owners as slave masters while providing them with multi-million dollar contracts living the life of a celebrity.

    How do you get fined over WORDS? Words said in private.
