Donald Sterling In Hot Trouble, Is Lifetime Ban A Good Thing [POLL]
Personally I think the guy is a jerk and good for the girlfriend to finally bring this guy down!
With all the issues we as people have in this world there really isn't room for a racist, there's enough tension already in life. This whole mess it turns out is just part of what's going on.
Apparently Rochelle, Sterling's wife is suing Donald's girlfriend/mistress for recieving some 2.5 million dollars in gifts from the man. Apparently Donald And V. Stiviano met at the 2010 Super Bowl. It's going to get real ugly before it gets any better.
Racial comments from a man at his caliber is quite un-called for. It not only hurts the league but all sports teams, athletes, all of us really. and could have an effect on the names of teams as well down the road, i.e. The Washington Redskins.
The NBA Commissioner laid down the law in a quick fashion which is banning Donald for life from any association with the league or the Clippers, he was fined $2.5 million -- which is the maximum allowable under the NBA constitution.
Now if they get at least three-fourths of the other 29 owners to agree to Silver's recommendation, Donald Sterling will be forced to sell the team.
He has owned The LA Clippers since 1981.
