He's been the worst owner in the league for 30 years. Do you really think he's going to care? A 5m fine is nothing to a billionaire.

He'll probably transfer ownership, best case in the short term.
He's not a day to day guy anyway. He can just run the team from home. Sure, inconvenient, but this is a major asset which he'll protect.

^ again Sterling doesn't own the nba. he owns a franchise under the umbrella of the NBA. its like owning a McDonalds franchise. If corporate/BOD/ higher ups don't deem you fit to own a franchise they can start the wheels rolling.

remember Sterling's greatest ally was David Stern in the sense that Stern was always pro ownership rights (think about how Stern ignored other offers for Seattle and let the owner just move to OKC, or any of the recent lockouts/CBA's where the NBAPA (players union/association) got assraped because it was obvious Stern knew that Billy Hunter/Derrek Fisher were inept and even worse corrupt as hell).

Silver pulled an Alpha move. Sure Sterling can sue to his heart's content, but that will just speed the process of decaying his franchise and ultimately losing money. Sterling's best out right now is probably a quick sell at massive profit from his initial/paltry $13 million investment.

i can see the knicks giving DeAndre Jordan or Jamal Crawford $15 million a year lol8[1].gif

absent a major explosion, i think this is likely to be the case for some time to come.

is the league lets these guys out of their contracts, thats kinda some BS. If Sterling has really been as bad as everyone is now claiming, then Rivers would have known that going in (and cashing those huge checks). Now you are going to allow them to choose who they want to play for and break contracts? The league is phucked up enough with players getting coaches fired, forcing trades etc. Allow them to start breaking contracts due to owners beliefs and you open up a Pandora's box.

so how do they enforce the indefinite banning? he just gets fined further if he attends?

how do they even enforce the fine?

Would be a great gif watching black security guards holding him back from sitting courtside.

I assume they would enforce the fine by withholding his revenue sharing payments.

Happened to Swaggy P this season too, stole all of his swaggy shoes.

You are right. You are not sure.
The commissioner's ruling is "final, binding and conclusive" which effectively is the same as an arbitration award.

This article(if not already posted) has good info:

He does, he has lots of custom Jordans like XIs in Laker colorways and he always gets those Nikes people literally kill to get.

Not to mention all those Versace shirts.
