What asinine comments from some other big it's on here. Cowards that wouldn't make them in public , but only on anonymous posts. This should have been escalated beyond belong. Overreaction to the nth degree.

They player should have shown up, did what they did in the pregnant warmup and at game rime, refused to take the court. And basically say they will not return to the court until the douche canoe is expelled from basket ball and seize all his assets.

Zero tolerance on bigots. Pummel them into absolutely humiliating submission then take $10 million and then throw the out on their ear.

what would a 30 year old woman want with a 81 year old man .she is a gold digger and i am sure she has men doing for her what sterling cant do and she is using his money to give to these men .she is in a law suite where she was to have taken 1.8 million dollars from sterling and was said that she would get even with sterling and trying to ruin him in his finance,s the truth will come out and she will tell who the other party is who put this together.but before an investigation has even started most blacks in america has him guilty.sterling,s family is right his so called gold digger girlfriend is nothing but a user .why else would she want a man his age.and she is not attractive at all.

I'm sure Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are foaming at the mouth about right now.

I have nothing against black people, but they sure have crappy spokespeople.

That two timing ho should be sent back to a trailer park somewhere in the desert.

Race horses still run even in the rain. NBA players are just the same as them, they entertain us.

The issue stems from letting them think they are as good as normal people. Sure they get a lot of money, but horses cost a lot also.

What Sterling should have done, or should do, is tell them like it is. You want paid, get your ass on the floor and play ball. You want to jaw jack, take that and your fired ass to the food stamp office.

The media once again makes something that means nothing into a big deal. Force him out, well yes, if you have the 200 million dollars to buy his property, the team and players.

What would these players have if not for Sterling? Nothing, because they are basketball players. Most quit college to play a game and now are as expected, old, and stupid.

My thinking is they better keep them flappers shut and play with their ball so they can get paid and keep them high dollars ho's they hang with.

You want to wonder something about the NBA??? How many of them guys are on the down low? You know, closet gays????

The entire issue in this country is the government trying to make people like each other. So what if the old guy does not like blacks. Who cares besides someone stupid. So what if he is racist. Who cares??

How about you people just minding your own business and not forcing your gayness, or blackness, or whatever onto people that just don't want to be around you.

Every day I cross someone that does not want to be around me, and I don't care. They want me to work for them in the capacity I do, then put up with my mouth, and attitude, or get the hell out of my shop.

I don't get paid to like you, and I don't ask you to like me.

What has to happen is the black population realize they are Americans just like the rest of us and shut the hell up. If being black bothers them, then change it, Michael Jackson did. But stop trying to make someone like you for any reason.

If someone you know does not like black people, then if he does not come around, why must you? Surely your mother taught you if you are not wanted, just go away.

We all wish..... But with our lying media, telling us crap that matters to no one and not telling us we have a foreigner in the white house that abandoned Marines under attack makes them less than useless.

Strange world. A wire-tapped conversation between two top diplomats over how to put in the proper puppet in a new government (Ukraine) is ridiculed, while this appears a greater outrage than Holocaust.

And the NAACP gave him a prize for not being a racist. Did they take into consideration that he only donated money to DEMOCRATS?
