Frankly I havent followed much of this. The usual tempest in a teacup because oh noes...he said something racist.
He doesnt owe me an apology. Im sure he owes the Clipper fans and the league in general an apology. As for fine forgiveness...well...hell...I am really sorry I was speeding judge...so...we can just forget that whole ticket thing...right?
The question is on what legal ground does the league fine the guy?

Fine him, let him keep the team.
Of course good luck finding players that would play for him or sponsors that will invest.
Haters will always hate. That's their job, I believe. Because these haters hate Sterling, now, they will never accept Sterling's apology.

I personally think it's an injustice. Albeit, I can see why the league does not want to piss off Black people. After all, who the hell else watches the NBA?
