actually it's closer to 100x as people are reporting that the market value of the team is around 1 billion.

Forbes estimate and what people are willing to pay are 2 totally different things. How are the clips only worth half a bill when the bucks, who are the worst team in the NBA, were just sold for $550 mil?

No discussion on what he said about black Jews?

Imagine basketball superstars, who are followed globally, denounce Isreal too for its treatment of blacks... Sterling said they're treated like dogs, 150%! Why? because isreal secretly sterilized blacks and it probably still does. It only immigrated Africans to that state for public relation reasons showing its multicultural.
The US sends over a million dollars of tax payer money to Isreal everyday.

The negative Isreali press implications are huge on this... Im thinking this is why U.S. secretary Kerry dropped the apartheid remark against Isreal a few days ago for damage control.

C'mon now, it's not only blacks that have gang related people, i'm sure white people do too. Trailor trash is just as bad as hood rats?

But i agree with the won't end racism point. It's going to be interesting to see how he handles comments made on and off the court by players. I think it just re-inforces that n word is okay if blacks say it more than anything.

We got a big baller who really wants to buy the Clippers. David Geffen reportedly offered $700 million to Sterling to buy the team. Sterling refused to sell the franchise.

Forbes magazine estimates the team's value at $575 million. Hmmm, he bought it in 1981 for $12 million.

If Sterling sells the team, he's making a tonne of money. -more money for those gold digging ho's.

Everyone perpetuates their own stereotypes but I'm sorry, in the public eye, specifically in pro sports no one is their own worst enemy worse than the black athlete

I don't think I'm going out on a limb saying that, it's well documented. None of this makes what sterling said acceptable but IMO there will never be a day where racism doesn't exist because most of the time the people who are always crying racism segregate themselves by their actions and the way they conduct themselves

I haven't been following this story other than hearing the penalties levied against this guy.

I'm curious how a sports organization has the legal ability to charge monetary penalties (fines) against a person?

Like, I understand that to be granted membership in an organization like the NBA that there are a set of rules to abide by so I understand they can rescinde his membership, maybe force him to sell the team but how can they legally charge him a personal fine of 2.5mil? Making racist comments is not illegal as far as I know in the USA...

Commissioner Silver said that under the NBA constitution, basically the league's legal document for operation, any owner can be fined up the maximum of $2.5 million for violating rules of conduct.

Every NBA owner is a franchisee when they buy a team. -sort of like a person buying a Subway franchise but with much more money involved in the purchase of an NBA team. As an NBA owner, you agree to abide by rules of conduct in order to "represent' the NBA product as an owner, a franchisee. Owners are buying an NBA franchise subject to league conditions, one of which may be personal conduct rules under the NBA constitution.

Who knows maybe they can't fine him, I'm sure he'll take it to court. But one thing we know is nothing screams the NBA loves black people more than banning him and fining the league maximum.

True.
But I don't think this is a matter of law. It's a matter of business, and a business owner that is found to be speaking poorly of his customer base is going to be unprofitable. It's all about money, and that's why the NBA hit him so hard, and so fast.

Keep in mind that Donald Silver is new at his commissioner's position. This was his first test, and a challenging one at that. He's now going against one of the old boys, as I'm sure Sterling isn't the only Billionaire owner who feels this way.

Wow, it sounds like every celebrity or person associated with the film and entertainment industry wants to buy the Clippers.

Magic Johnson, Diddy, Floyd Mayweather, Dr. Dre, etc.


RS group buy of the Clippers?

we're also perpetuating it by talking about it... when in reality...

it's just some fucking childs game, owned and played by adults... where the whole system is setup so the owners and players benefit big time, and the poor throw their money away, and IDOLIZE people who should have no respect to begin with...

no one will even fucking care about this in a few months.

that chick looks like a tranny plastic faced ho. the only thing i'm disappointed about is, the billionaire's taste in women. that's about it.

the whole racism thing is blown totally out of proportions and the hypocrites (not just the players, but the people in general) are, like hondaracer said "...are always crying racism segregate themselves by their actions and the way they conduct themselves"
