I like how Kobe said that he wouldn't play for him, when in fact we all know that Kobe thought long and hard about signing with the Clippers. Donald Sterling being a racist is nothing new. Ask all the minorities he kicked out of his apartments. 

 

Also VC got it done. Oh and in case anyone is wondering, so far it is safe to say that Monta have it all.

OKC with the 4th quarter collapse. Kinda expected since Durant and Westbrook played pretty bad the entire game. Can Memphis hold on? =O

Can't say I was expecting a real playoff push from the Bulls but I had hoped they'd get past the Wizards. Just don't have the scoring, and when you think about it, it's kind of absurd they got this far without Deng. Been a great season, nonetheless. Praying for carmelo  :pray:.

 

Wizards have been a fun team to watch.

Well at least the Clippers have an "excuse" to hide behind when today's score goes final.

If they even had just 1 goto scorer the bulls win and this wouldn't even be an issue. The Bulls actually were probably trying to tank this season (all the signs are there) but since the East is so damn bad they end up making the playoffs anyway.

So Williams gets fouled never puts the ball on the ground shooting a 3 and doesn't get free throws, seems legit.

 

Its like night and day  when it comes to Matthews defense on Harden and vice versa. And as i say that Harden lets Batum blow right past him when he was 10 ft in front of him.

 

Dwight getting away with armbar and push offs all series long. Lopez has got no respect at all and is always in foul trouble or fouled out because Dwight doesn't know how to post up.

They shouldn't have gotten rid of Nate Robinson either.  I liked their offense with him on the floor.  I didn't pay the wizards any attention this year... I thought the bulls would be able to get past them.  They couldn't beat the wizards without Nene?!

As an NBA owner, he's going to be held to a higher standard so I'm good with it.

If you're banned from an institution for life, would you bother paying the fine, especially when Silver said he is going to push the Board of Governors to force a sale of the Clippers?

Yes because he is going to make some bank when he sells his team.

Edit: but I wouldn't pay it until all the courtroom stuff is done and was finally forced or decided it was time to sell team. Pay the 2.5 mil, then get the 600+ mil (or whatever the franchise is sold for).

I think that Silver may be able to get him to sell the team but I highly doubt it is legal to bar someone from attending an NBA game, for life, just because they made racist comments in private, that were recorded illegally. 

 

Will be interesting to watch this unravel. Although after all is said and done, I'm not sure why Sterling would ever want to attend another game. It would be awkward as hell for him although he does appear to be stubborn/delusional so who knows.

The bylaws apparently allow for this as the NBA corporate lawyers have had 3 days to reread the entire NBA constitution before today's hammer was dropped.

As a Warriors fan, I wonder now whether this will just fuel the Clippers players and bring them right back into the series. Yikes. According to a rep from the NBA Player's Association, players were prepared to boycott if the punishment was not severe.

Historic day in the NBA. This may define Silver's tenure.

^ I don't disagree that he can be forced out---I do disagree that he can be barred from ever attending an NBA game as a fan for comments he made in private.

 

Kind of interesting that a Knicks player can be brought up on serious gun charges in a gun free city, and per the players association policies, be allowed to finish the season but an owner gets removed as owner 72 hours after a recording is leaked?

Considering he is factually the worst owners in North American sports, should one really argue in his favor for any topic? Regardless of his racist thoughts, isn't the NBA better without Sterling?

While he didn't break the law like carrying the gun, his position of ownership and leadership made the private comments all the more magnified.  As Silver said, his comments were private but they were made public so therefore it's become his public view.  A player will always be held to a lower standard than an owner.  Players do idiotic things themselves all the time yet they usually get reprimanded because it either reflects poorly for the individual or the team.  As an owner, he represents the league and it has a bigger impact.  Sponsors have pulled out as a result so he's become bad for business. 
 
It'll be interesting to see whether Sterling fights this or not.

A private individual can be banned from a stadium/arena so I'm sure they can ban him from all nba games. You don't have a right to attend any sporting event.

I bet he gets over a billion for the team. If someone paid 550 for the Bucks then a team in LA has to be at least double that.
