    I would hate to sell---that team is a gold mine. The Lakers are at least 5 years away from being relevant again. The Clippers are the hot LA ticket now. Billion dollar TV contracts are for the taking.

    Of course, when your pot of gold relies on a good faith contract with African Americans, be they players, coaches or fans, only an idiot would disparage them. So...he probably should sell the team for what he can get. I suspect he will still walk away with a huge profit.

    Like hell.

    You're trying to circumvent your obvious prejudices by making baseless claims. You may as well be wearing a dashiki and sporting dreads while screaming about "injustice from whitey".

    Why make up a separate form of hatred? It's the same hatred. It's all heinous. It's all racism.

    Of course good luck finding players that would play for him or sponsors that will invest.
    Yeah, I'm not going to play for a guy that will give me millions of dollars because of his views. Why in the hell would I care? I want the millions of dollars, ffs.

    He damaged their image, insulted members of the NBA, their fans and the country. He proved that a moron can own an NBA team. It reduces confidence in other owners and the NBA itself. He tarnished the NBA.

    Bigotry is about more than hatred. Not all bigotry is the same. Racism is bigotry in a social context. That social context cannot be removed in order to equate all bigotry or the point of having a name for the social construct as opposed to bigotry is lost. That's the objective of racists - to ignore real racism and invent fake racism by equating it with bigotry and just discrimination like AA.

    The most disturbing thing about this whole incident is not that there are racist rich white guys owning basketball teams out there, it's that comments said in one's home can have such repercussions. Are we moving to a society we're we have to "lawyer" everything that comes out of our mouths?

    Not my call. How do we treat others after they apologize? He should not be treated any differently.

    The word you're looking for is "pandering".

    Why not just call me a race traitor?
