Remember last year when Chris Paul demanded they hire a black head coach or he wasn't going to stay in LA? Of course not because it was quietly brushed aside. Yep, Google it. That's not racist? Oh but it's ok because it's a black guy being racist.

This thread has got way out of hand and I will pay 5 rep votes to have it removed.

It's a basketball forum guys.

I told you guys that the other owners are in fear ,the only way to get D.Sterling out is to put pressure on the rest of the owners. To do that the players need to call for a complete boycott of the playoffs and this will hit the owners and sponsorships and tv contracts in there pocket books! This action will make the other nba team owners take actions and demand Sterlings head !! It all about money period ,very sad

Are there any REAL CURRENT updates to this whole situation yet? I'm so tired of speculation, false optimism, and false pessimism. Uggghhhh....

Let's wait for the actual announcement by Silver before jumping to conclusions.

from a basketball fan's perspective, its "indefinitely" fine. he won't be around and at least there's a tiny bit of closure to focus on basketball. hopefully this leads to a sale sooner than later.

Very Happy As expected, for all you who actually thought the NBA or anyone else could do anything to this man... I'm the first to say I told you so. DTS is NOT going anywhere. and he's taking this Clip ship to hell with him too. Sad but true...

I feel sick. It sucks to be emotionally invested in this team...but it's the reality of it. I'm feeling sick in the stomach. I feel so lost as a fan. I hope there is some good that comes out of this, today, tomorrow, or this year. I feel like I'm near the end as a Clipper fan and NBA fan.

The punishment Simmons was talking about: lifetime ban and starting the franchise termination process (basically getting him to sell). This is a slap on the wrist and effectively the end of our franchise because he isn't going to sell on his own!

I'm really hoping there's more to it than TMZ knows....

Another logical take on the fiasco. Funny that all of the outrage seems to be coming from white people.

did you guys really think the NBA would have came up with the solution to force Sterling to sell the team?

Go root for the Spurs. They look good & their management is top notch! Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Me, I'll be at the game rooting my boys on as per usual.

HOLY SH*T, Silver just banned Sterling from the nba FOR LIFE! anything, facilities, governing meetings, anything else he's not allowed ever to be associated with the clippers or to come to any games, and fined him 2.5 mil, and he's urging the owners the board of governors to force a sell of the team. AWESOME!

That above tweet^ is not too accurate, 2.5 mil is the max on the by-laws of the nba to fine someone. Looks like Sterling will be forced to sell. And looks like the board has authority to force Sterling out if there is a 3 quarters vote. but guys GUYS, he's Banned FOR LIFE!

Look at "I have a Dream" If you've never seen it see it. If you've seen it see it again. That is where this started

His point is well taken EXCEPT a bit of history. The invention of the tractor put southern black farmers who used mules out of work, Fortunately industries such as steel mills needed labor. They sent train cars to the south to get labor and if you sponsored a worker you got paid. A black man could in the steel mills, auto industry etc earn enough for the American Dream. Home ownership wife doesn't work etc. This was available to a black man who had no education. My uncle lived in a town where the "Colored School

" had only grades 1-10. You couldn't graduate from high school. At Chevy in my home town when automation came the assembly line dropped from seventeen to seven, read ten black workers lost jobs. When the steel industry became the rust industry black families were devastated and men became economically irrelevant. It had nothing to do with a freeway. Gary Indiana was a prosperous area but when the steel mills closed it became a war zone.

Welcome to the ghetto.

As well. I was extremely happy to hear the news, and Adam Silver not only handed out the harshest punishment, but looked like the confident leader we expected. Quite honestly I was hoping Adam Silver would be at last nights game if he was I would make it my personal mission to go down and shake his hand. On the way home I was listening to Isaac Lowechron on 980, and one caller broke down into tears....I could relate. To almost see this organization fade into the abyss once again only to be saved by Silver, what an ending. Also, congrats on the moderator position. I couldn't think of a better choice, once again David making the best decisions to make CTB a better place.

Amazing to see that he will leave this earth knowing that an empire he got started will be out of his hands, such is the price to pay. His life is a cautionary tale now

Never, after all these years of Sterling it was almost as if it was a bad reality. He was an evil we appeared to be locked in with

He will get somewhere between 700-1 billion dollars (highest $ so far for an NBA sale) for his "empire" he got started. He will leave this earth a multi-billionaire who's character and integrity were always highly questionable.

He knew exactly what he was doing. No remorse.

He threw caution to floor and stepped on it. Sometimes, you reap what you sow....sometimes.

We got lucky this time as fans of the team after all this years...finally.

No tears should or shall be wasted on this guy.

Can't fine the old thread. Watching KCAL now and supposedly DTS has done one interview in which he said "I wish I would have just paid her off". Shi*,isn't 2 million paying her off?

He also said he would only due an in depth interview with Barbara Walters.

Now, Barbara Walters flew into LA today,interview time? They also eluded to him vowing never to give up his team without a fight.

How big is your billionaire ego that even though you are hated by everyone in America that has heard the story except for white supremacist groups, that you vow to say eff you to all of us. This guy needs to be bitc* slapped about 10000000 times. Let's tie him to that seat that is next to the Chick Hearn statue in front of staples and have an egg throwing contest.

Kareem Jabaar said in an interview that more whites believe in ghosts than racism. He did some research

I have to salute my white brothers for making unbelievable strides. The Civil Rights movement started in the mid 60's and in fifty years we have come maybe 90% to being a color blind society. Yes we are not there yet BUT-. In countries such as Bosnia and Northern Ireland their peace was achieved by years of horrible violence. Ours was accomplished by non violence and our leader Martin Luther King is considered a paragon of virtue world wide. Compare this to the IRA. I am surrounded by hardcore Republicans some are Tea Party. Someone made a racist comment toward me. They were more incensed than I was. I didn't give a rat's as*. There are routinely mixed couples on TV. Sixty years ago mixed couples could be killed. It goes on and on. The support by WHITE PEOPLE was amazing.

As Americans we should all be proud.

I need you guys to help me. The why I understand Mr. Sterling's punishment

  1. banned for life

  2. 2.5 million dollar fine

  3. Selling team (by other owners)

Mrs. Sterling's was not part of the punishment.

  1. If she owns half the team how can the NBA force her to sell her shares?

  2. Would the NBA have to punish her to? But for want grounds?

  3. She now is saying that she co-owns the team

I am beginning to think that the family thinks that they have found away to keep half of the team.

She will have to be banned too. She doesn't own the team. The league would know. Maybe because marriage made it communal in her eyes? She is a total cow.

Oh and the sight of Shelly being congratulated on the win made me sick. Her tone deafness is sinister. She's emerging as a villain too.

They haven't. Under the bylaws, when DTS is banned, the team becomes property of the NBA, not Shelly.

To be fair, keeping stuff in the hallway is both unsightly (thus lowering property value) and a fire hazard.

I understand that the NBA are in the process of taking DTS shares. But if she does own 50% (out right or by marriage) and the NBA has not ban Mrs. Sterling's how can they take her shares? Would not State law and Federal law (community property) come first over the NBA? Do not get me wrong I would like new owners but I think Mrs. Sterling's is acting like she knows something (showing up for games and talking to Coach Rivers).

The important parts are her lying about being a government employee and her making sure to record the ethnicities of the tenants. There are also stories coming out now about her saying racist things right in minority tenants' faces. Shelly = disgusting.

I'm curious, in the unlikely event the Clippers win the championship this year, does the NBA have to give Sterling a ring, or have they dissociated him from the team enough that he's not entitled to one?

Anyone see the excerpt of Anderson Cooper Interview with Donald Sterling. He sounds like he doesn't even want to fight it. He said , " If I win or If They Win, and we each spend millions fighting, it doesn't really benefit me"

It sounds over for him.

The full interview debuts tomorrow

Can't he just make his own ring? I mean, I think the owners pay to make those rings when they win the championship anyway.
