    His racist comments do damage the brand and violate the terms of the license contract.
    I explained my position. I'm sure you want everyone else to do the same, yes? I gave you the list of the others who voted "no".

    I believe in the rights of personal property over anything else. Simple as that. I don't believe the NBA was harmed by his words. Simple as that part 2. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I'll be anxious to see what the others whose opinions you're anxious to see defended say about the issue.

    None of us know how we'd vote because we're not owners of a team. I assume this poll was a hypothetical one, unless we have NBA owners posting among us? I'm sure the others who said "no" also assume this to be a hypothetical poll.

    That's nice.

    I'd vote no. What were the reasons the others said they would vote no? I haven't seen you ask them that yet. Am I so interesting that you only care about my reasons?

    That's nice. Luckily in our hypothetical poll we get to say why we'd vote what we would vote.

    I'd vote no.

    Personal property rights IMO trump an NBA contract.

    That is all.
    No, the "right" to own an NBA franchise is contingent on the terms of the ownership agreement. Sterling violated that agreement.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Didn't you state earlier: "My opinion is that personal property trumps NBA contracts. Simple as that." That doesn't sound hypothetical to me.

    Then the owners can vote to take away his property rights.

    I as an owner wouldn't. Lots of others in this thread wouldn't either.

    That's the beauty of hypothetical polls and America.

    What does that have to do with the fact that this was a hypothetical poll?
