IMO.
    It's doesn't matter if I think they would've walked or not. The fact is that the Clippers and Golden State made it clear to Silver that at tip-off they would walk out. They felt confident and united enough to make such a bold declaration. Sometimes the "threat" of is enough to get your point across...and there is no way that the NBA was going to put them in a position to walk out.

It is like a community wanted to boot you from your own home that you outright own it.
    Not a good analogy IMO.

    The Association did invalidate him and disassociate itself from him, by banning him for life.

    Bomani Jones basically said how fundamentally silly this whole Donald Sterling affair sounds when you really listen to what's being said, about how exasperating it is for those of us who see the everyday effects of race to have to deal with the performative sanctimony of those who deny race's continuing impact in all but the most obvious, largely inconsequential situations, or about the collective failure of the NBA, the media, the players, the coaches, and just about everyone else to comprehend, condemn, and take action against the actually harmful things Sterling has done over the years.

    I largely agree with Bomani. Sterling has been a piece of shit the entire time he has own the Clippers. He should have been removed long before this. People across the country only know of this one incident from Sterling, that while shows his racism, didn't hurt anyone. But the years of racist policies in his housing developments and ownership of his team actually hurt people.

    Bomani wrote an article about about Sterling in 2006. Basically saying we (sports world) has failed because they allowed Sterling to be an owner for so long. Good read.

    I meant not only himself from the Association, but his organization as well if he isnt going to sell his team.

    That wouldn't say much for leadership then, if the Commish let's the players dictate to him what they want him to do....
    Here is my prediction in the matter, the league will realize that this will not only cost a fortune to fight in court but create a stigma on itself also with all the dirt being slung around for the next few years in court....Then they will sit down with Sterling's attorneys and try to come to a compromise that will satisfy both sides partially.....Sterling will apologize publicly, and admit that he was in a jealous rage over his girlfriend and the AA players she'd been hanging out with, pay the fine and do some therapy.....All will be forgiven," if he chooses to keep the team," and the NBA will accept...

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I'll take that bet.

    I say he's no longer owner come the start of next season.

    Bomani is spot on.

    Bit of a side note, im not sure forcing him to sell the team is punishment as he'll likely walk away 500 mill +

    He'll pay upwards of $160 mil in capital gains tax at that $500 mil sale price, which why this whole thing is not going to end with just a vote. I think AirFlacco mentioned it earlier, there will be challenges to the league bylaws. The courts will end up settling this whole thing in the end.
