Did the NBA suddenly discover that one of their long time owners harbored racist thoughts. Didn't they know or want to know about all the complaints they overlooked in his discriminatory housing deals?
And , what are the ethics of destroying a person for his prejudices?
They NBA went further, reports the Wrap: "Sterling now cannot attend games or practices or be part of any league business. He can also no longer enter Clippers facilities or participate in organizational decisions.
The head of the NBA will also petition the other NBA owners to force Sterling to sell the team. If two-thirds vote to expel him, the Clippers will be up for sale."
Is there an economic motive or even a conspiracy moving against him?
Talk about a draconian sentence that seems to have been passed in haste before any investigation was undertaken.
Did he have any right to represent himself? Did he have a lawyer in this, on the face of it, unconstitutional arbitrary ruling by an appointed Commissioner acting as a judge, jury and executioner?
Was he being more sexist than racist here---or just insecure and intimidated and tying to control a woman ho seemed to be using him, probably with his consent?
