Seems to be okay until it's blatant apparently. Hell, none of this seemed to bother anybody until the Clippers got out of the cellar for perennial losers. If you ask me, Stern didn't have the balls to do anything and now in light of the recent events, things have snowballed.

Hell, Stern blocked a trade of Chris Paul to the Lakers and then handed him to Sterling.

All short-term blowback. Rather than sell the team, he could give it to his wife or have her the face of the team. There are options. He's not going to sell under value. And if he does sell, he'll get $$$ either way.

I'm not even sure if your serious if you think handing his team to his wife would be any type of solution.

A common tactic in police investigation (where you are dealing with a victim who has accused a particular suspect) is to have the victim call the suspect and discuss the allegations while police record the conversation for later use at trial.

Unless you have a pre-existing privilege of legal confidentiality with a person you talk to on a phone, you don't have any right not to have the conversation recorded. The theory is that they could just turn around and tell a third person about it anyway. The taping just bolsters their credibility.
Wrong. Many states including California require consent of all parties to any private conversation before recording said conversation. Check out California Penal Code Section 632.

Back to the topic, sterling is a piece of ****, but what makes no sense here is that everyone has known this for years. Hell, Bill Simmons has been putting it in his columns for Decades. Why the outrage now? Seems very hypocritical to have the outrage now when the dude is on record saying black tenants attract vermin.... or that Mexicans are drunks etc... etc...

You could be assuming that the victim recording (or police/detectives) the accused can have a court order to allow it. If the police are involved, they probably have lawful permission to do so in California.

Sterling and golddigger could have been on the road and out of state.

You do realize it's racist to assume all whites are racist don't you?

Barkley was on Mike and Mike this morning laughing about it. He said it isn't much of a punishment to make someone sell something for a billion dollars.

So Sterling tells his GF that she can date and sleep with black guys, but just doesn't want her to bring them to his games?

How racist can you really be if you're letting your GF sleep with black guys etc? I'm thinking Sterling is actually a cuckolded fool who just got scammed. But whatever...I don't care about the NBA anyways...but I do find this article interesting -

Amazing how far we have come, we went from blacks having their own schools, water faucets and bathrooms to their own professional basketball league?

he just claimed that whites are more racist than blacks at a 100-1, 1000-1 and even more ratio...without a shred of evidence to support his numbers.

Larry Johnson just suggested that there be an all-black basketball league...now had he been white, he'd be labelled a racist. But he's not, so he won't....

Ok, so you make up stuff AND have selective reading. I did not dispute the other stuff. All I said was he didn't say all white people are racist. Looks like you just need to argue just to argue.

His quote that whites are a 100-1 times more likely to be racist is just as bad, wouldn't you agree?

amazing how you attack me for pointing out his racist remark by pointing out a believed technicality.

he's a registered republican dumbass.

Please tell me you are being facetious.

How is his racism or lack thereof synonymous with who his GF sleeps with?

I can't be racist. I have black friends.
I can't be racist. Majority of my players are black.

And to the last paragraph, I'm sure you are aware that segregation was the direct cause of those things you mentioned.
