I can't see how the NBA can fine him 2.5 million for his personal opinions. Sounds like a cash grab.

Kudos to commissioner Silver bringing the hammer down on Sterling.

Nobody, even a billionaire, should be excused for saying those hurtful words about African Americans or any visible minority.


C'mon Aquilini, buy the Clippers and move them to Vancouver. Lowball Sterling!
Bring back the NBA to our city!

Another person who obviously did not listen to the audio clip. He's not telling black people not to attend his games; he doesn't want his girlfriend posting photos of herself on instagram with black guys or bringing them to the game with her.

Not that I don't agree with the ban, but on what grounds can they fine someone 2.5M for their personal opinion?

There must be a clause in the NBA Owners contract that addresses this?
Also, in another thread, we just covered that private conversations in the states can't be recorded (or at least are inadmissible in court)..

i honestly think that the man just chose the wrong words at that time. if he had said something along the lines of "dont bring your fucking hood rat friends to my basketball games" this whole situation wouldn't have blown up in his face. i dont know about you guys, but if i was a billionare i sure as fuck would not want to hang around hood rats either..

Owners are Liable for their actions to all other owners and the NBA. You are acting as an agent of the other owners and a representative of the league.

The actions of Sterling could directly affect other owners and the leagues reputation. So you are damn right they will drop the hammer on his ass or anyone else if they start saying stupid shit that could hurt ratings or drop attendance.

Even if the above wasnt the case (which it is), if I were the judge on the case I would stand behind the NBA just on the basis that Sterling is a Racist dickhead.

I hope they force a sale, I mean what good is an owner who is Banned for life, from almost anything NBA related?

Because the Clippers are a franchise. When you buy a franchise you sign a contract that has rules of conduct.


If the NBA did not fine him and kick him out the players would have gone on strike. That's According to former NBA player/Player rep/mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson. Steve Nash was also at the same press conference and spoke.

Even if you see the ban as an attack on "free speech", in the end, this decision was as much about money as it was about values. Money always talks in the end.

I'm sure the NBA's lawyers have every reason to believe they can win if Sterling takes the league to court.

You're correct I haven't. I went with what I read on the first page where it says " and do not bring them to my game " to me I figured he didn't want black ppl in general. If he is referring to , for example, black people who are , as someone else said, a hood rat (ie. Sketchy friends of the gf) then okay. In that case he just used the wrong words to express his feelings.

It would be easy for them to win, its not hard to believe the league would lose 2.5 million if it appeared that they condoned racism or didn't discipline a representative of the league who openly said such racist remarks. Especially racism towards african americans which account for a large number of both players in the league and the fans who watch the sport.

Funny how Magic was the person who was singled out in the tapes and now he's the frontrunner to buy the Clippers.

And I'm glad this guy has been ousted, his comments went beyond "free of speech". He was protected by David Stern and others but eventually your hate gets exposed and shit hits the fan. He's a known racist and bigot who has a long history of hurting and destroying vulnerable people in our society like poor minorities by using his power and wealth. The largest discrimination settlement in LA history belongs to this guy and the way he treated people was unimaginable.

To be honest, I don't really know why people are surprised by this racist fuck. This kind of talk and mindset is EXTREMELY common in high levels of government, banks, and corporations. It's an old white boys club, if you think this Sterling asshole is one of the few, you're grossly mistaken. Racism isn't gone, far from it. What bothers me the most is that these are the kind of people we have running our societies on the highest levels, these old archaic racist nitwits. My dream is that one day these guys will die off, and hopefully the younger generations will move into positions of power without having the racist dogmas from the past.

Maybe I'm thinking a little too pie in the sky though.

imo if you are 75+ years old you get a pass on racism and religion.

especially if you were brought up from the south.

The difference, of course, is Richards' is white dude and Rock is an african-american guy.
IMO it's less "bad" to be racist towards your own race... lets be real here, Chris Rock's whole "Black people vs. N***ers" comedy bit - while hilarious - would be completely unacceptable from ANY race, not just whites.

In the same way, being Filipino when I'm with my friends I make jokes all the time about Filipino people being nannies, working at McDonalds, housekeeping, etc... whereas I would be somewhat offended if some random person of another race started spouting off the same stuff in front of me. IMO being part of a racial group, whatever it is, gives you some license to notice stereotypes and poke fun at them. It's like how the "What White People Like" website is run by a white guy... but would likely be seen as offensive if, say, a Black person was running it.

I heard on the news that when Sterling bought the team back in the 80's it was $12 million. It easily worth at least 50 times that amount now...

I'm gonna just leave this here NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Rips BOTH SIDES in Donald Sterling ?Scandal? | Top Right News

TL : DR

One past incident, Sterling fined $3 million because he refused to house blacks cause he felt they "smell and attract vermin". (by far a more disgusting comment than the one this time)

“So, if we’re all going to be outraged,” the former NBA star wrapped up, “let’s be outraged that we weren’t more outraged when his racism was first evident. Let’s be outraged that private conversations between people in an intimate relationship are recorded and publicly played. Let’s be outraged that whoever did the betraying will probably get a book deal, a sitcom, trade recipes with Hoda and Kathie Lee, and soon appear on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and ‘Dancing with the Stars.’”
