    No, and I don't care about it. It's just my opinion.

    I enjoyed the young chippy and the wife at odds with each other more than anything. I'm not proud of myself for enjoying that trainwreck.

    There are plenty of owners available. It's best if the NBA does not excuse those who would so insult their members, fans and the public in general.

    Someone that is smart enough to realize there is only so many teams and playing in the NBA can easily make you a millionaire.

    The NBA does not need Sterling. Sterling has damaged the NBA in two ways: racism and a disrespect of players. No one wants him in the club anymore. Freedom of association, buh bye.

    I understand. I'm no longer an NBA fan after David Stern and Clay Bennett bent the City of Seattle over. But having sat court side many times it is mind boggling how big and graceful those guys are. They are freakish.

    The whole thing felt rather contrived.

    I get it, but when you have scores over 100 regularly, it's time to make the game more difficult. I mean the guys playing now are a foot and a half taller than the guys who invented the game. Come on!

    Slam dunks have never impressed me. It's just showboating. Shooting and such is better viewing.

    And yes, I have sat court side... albeit 30+ years ago. What turns me off now more than anything is how the last 2 minutes of the game gets dragged out to 30 minutes.
    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.
