Allright then. Should we then demand they force the racist Jay-Z sell the Nets? He is a confirmed black supremacist.
He offends me . He is even out in public flaunting jewelry from a hate group. A lot of his "songs" if they can really be called that are racist in nature.
How is that any different? Oh, right he is black, therefore he can not be racist right?

I agree with the lifetime ban for Sterling, there's no place for that in today's society.
My beef comes where the NBA continues to let criminals be involved in the league. Why is Jason Kidd still coaching, for example? He's been arrested multiple times, including for assault and domestic abuse. Guess how long he got suspended for his latest arrest (DWI)?
Jason Kidd put peoples lives in danger and gets a 2 game suspension. Where's the outrage that guys like this are still involved in the NBA? I guess the message is it's OK to beat your wife and drive drunk so long as you don't make any racist remarks along the way.
The reality is Jason Kidd is still involved because he didn't cost the NBA any money, whereas this Sterling thing would have. This comes down to, once again, money.
Ps. The comments were offensive to the entire team he owns..... The league he belongs to and anyone not a conservative.

Boot Sterling? NBA Team Owners May Be Concerned About Skeletons In Their Closet
If only they would post the dirt on our politicians with equal fervor.
I absolutely think there was more to the jordan deal than was let on.

Coming from a league that suspended one of its very best players for a period of only two years (covering it up under the guise of retirement) for gambling on basketball games and, as a result, members of his own family threatened and his father getting killed for failing to pay the gambling debt...
This is a conspiracy site. Some conspiracy and cover ups are real yet so outrageous that no one will believe them.
I've heard this before. There are sealed FBI files about Jordan, gambling debts and his father's murder. MJ 'retired' because at that time he was the face of the NBA. A public suspension would have ruined the NBA and the revenue stream MJ brings.
