I will admit this... I am a minority. If you were to record me while I was driving, especially in traffic(I have terrible road rage), I'd make Sterling look like an ant. Some things just aren't made to be public. Unfortunately for him, it was. I don't condone what he said, but to practically force him to sell his team, it's way overboard. This reeks of Roger Goodell-ism in a new commissioner trying to make his mark and set an example. A life time ban is way too harsh imo.

*PSA announcement*

I grew up in a mixed income neighborhood... I don't discriminate. I have white, black, mexican, asian friends... good friends. While I've said some dumb **** in my life, I'm no racist... but I have been ignorant. Now I don't know if the same applies to Sterling, who is a known racial discriminator, I'm just saying it doesn't always go hand and hand. I think people who are passing judgement, especially some of the celebrities, should look at themselves in the mirror and then talk.

We've all said dumb ****. If you haven't, well... you must be a saint. If we were to wire up pro athletes 24/7, I'm not sure we'd have competitive sports anymore.
I agree with everything you are saying (and usually do) except one thing: as a franchise owner, Sterling should be held to a higher standard then common folk. And while I agree he was (wrongfully) baited, I just don't see how any other consequence would have been sufficient...

The guy's a douche, yes, but unless the documentation from when he first bought the team is very specific, I think the NBA is in for a long fight.
They'll cite code of ethics, upholding standards, etc, but they are facing a rich, old guy with nothing better to do than be a pain in the @ss. He's got money, time, patience and motivation.
He might get voted out 29-1, but then it's going to be appeal, appeal, appeal.

I am not guessing here, I am speaking from experience.

Franchise owners are often forced to want out.
Andy Cheung, McDonald's Franchisee, Forced Out After Allegations Of Worker Exploitation

Owner Of Lodge-Themed Chevrolet Dealer In Norman, OK Sells Franchise Instead Of Changing Style | GM Authority

This should satisfy this debate.

The NBA can force the sale of its franchises by vote.
Report: NBA pressuring Maloofs to sell Sacramento Kings to Seattle*group | The Point Forward - SI.com
Vivek Ranadive, Sacramento Kings owner, expects unanimous vote to force Donald Sterling to sell Los Angeles Clippers - ESPN


Thank you, drive through.

Re: Clippers Owner Banned 4 Life

Really the guy deserves to be banned. As well as really thought he was above the law. He and his estranged wife as well.

She tried in a Nightline report posed as a building inspector. And tried to kick out minorities. She seems as bad as he is.

Re: Clippers Owner Banned 4 Life

The most disgusting part of this whole mess to me isn't the fact that he's a racist, thats been pretty well documented for a couple of decades, and its not that the media has ignored that fact and suddenly jumped on him for it, its because he has a wife and no one is mentioning that little fact.

Dude has a wife and is openly being seen with a young hottie day in and day out and no one thinks that's worth mentioning?

For some reason that makes me more sad than him dropping some offensive language in an illegally recorded conversation with his hoar.

Re: Clippers Owner Banned 4 Life

Racism. Nepotism. Sexism. Sex. Wealth. Power. Prostitute. Freedom of Speech. The legal , estranged, separated wife vs. the newest and most recent girlfriend. Suicide. IRS. Classism-Wealthiest % vs. the Middle Class. Husband/father.
Sports business. Scandal. Entertainers. Ageism. Prostrate Cancer.
This story has it ALL.

Racism.
What he said in private to his paid tr______ girlfriend- escort was not racist. He was telling her what he requested of her. It was a private conversation.
He did not want her bringing Black people to the games as in sitting courtside, in the suite by her and him, them. He did not want her putting her pictures taken with guys like Magic Jonhson out on her FB, Intagram.
She was his "paid friend" and they simply had a lovers' quarrel over the telephone.
I assume that she always being with him, sitting courtside with him, etc., all players, his staff, etc. knew she was his girlfriend and he did not to be humilatated by her.

If he had said in an interview,publically, he did not want Blacks, Whites, Handicapped people, Gays, etc. going to the games, that that would be different.

All the celeb world, talking heads on the news shows, etc. are all up in arms over this.

When WAS a racist proven case with him is the case in which he was fined by the govt. for housing discrimination and more. That was some years ago and no one from the celebs, talking heads in the media, NBA players, the then Commis , this Comiss, etc. said one word.
He is a proven slumlord.
No one then from NBA players, the then Comiss or this one, celebs, talking media heads never said one word.


Nepotism.
He has to sell, well, politley putting it , be forced to want to sell his team because he is bad for business for the NBA.
The others in the private club will want him out because they do not his problems tainting them , their various business staffs, team, other businesses, fans, city, etc.

Sexism.
Thing is , where I think legally there might a case is that Shelly Sterling owns 40 % or 50% of the team . I have read both figures. Who are the other owners if there are any of the L.A. Clippers? Why,how is she penalized for him?
Talking heads, LaBron James and he said NBA players, etc. have said they want no Sterlings owning the team.
SSterling said that is one of the NBA owners' wives have done soemthing , would they, the good ole boys' owners, be forced to sell their team? Ans. NO!!!!!
Ok, lets say she is politley forced too to sell. Fine. Then as a compromise, her son-in-law can cont. running that business. Daughter, other kids, if there are any can still own the team. They andn the NBA can bring more minority owners in. Out someone's face up as the owner. She can be a silent owner. So much for silence when she is known player in the NBA and this mess. I think this will be a legal sticking point in trying to politely make her sell. Politely make her children sell....

Suicide .
The Sterlings ' son, of their kids, killed himself a few years ago. Drug overdose. All that money and no happiness or peace in life.

The estranged wife vs. the current paid girlfriend.
The Mrs. sued the V. Svitano current girlfriend thing for fraud, etc. in March. Word is V. Svitano said she would get back and BOY OH BOY, did she!!!!


Prostitute.
Sterling had his prostitute from a years ago attend NBA business or other business meetings of hers. Set her up in a Bev Hills home. She sued him for things and the house and he won that case.

Freedom of Speech/Right to privacy.
If anyone here , anywhere says they would not mind their private phone coversations, talk inside their homes, in their cars, in emails , etc. to family and friends released to their cleints, supervisors, neighbors, students, then YOU ARE LYING!!!!! Reporting/taping private talk about a crime to the police is legal.
I will say I am NOTLYING and I would NOT want my private calls, emails, talk inside my home, car, doctors' office , etc. released to the public.
I did not say what subjects I talk about. Anything. Any subject.
Vanessa "V" clearly taped the stupid, nasty, POS old man without his knowledge , set him up , and released it to TMZ.
She said she did not release it. Yeah, right.

IRS. Wealth vs. The Middle Class. Classism.
So Vanessa "V" S. says she was paid off the books to be his archiavist. Ummm, off the books. At $240,000 a year. Ummm, seems to me the IRS might want to look into this of hers and Sterlings Co. Hmmm, but the IRS sure would come after us Little Guys for being late and not filing an extension or something minor.

Entertainers of Hollyweird.
They are all at the Clippers' games now. The Clippers never had Playoffs and things. they always were at Lakers games.

Ageism. Prostrate Cancer.
Well, sort of. Sterling is 81. He has Prostrate Cancer.
Banning this POS for life, good. Thing is no big deal here. How much life does he have left?? LOL!!! I would say not too much!!

Husband/father. It seems this guy all his life was an awful husband and father.
