I have no idea how true that is but that is out there.
I can't imagine he would have said that if he knew she was recording him. She was also his girlfriend so if he is saying things in confidence in private as boyfriend to girlfriend and not boss to archivist without his knowledge that she is recording at the time that seems like that is an issue.

I don't think Magic would buy the team just to ruin them, he wouldn't want to lose that money.

Example- look how much moving to NY helped the Nets, and they're competing against the most valuable basketball franchise in the league right now.

Are there any large markets out there that don't currently have a team that would be a better financial move?

Because San Diego is the old home of the Clippers...

He could bring them to Seattle, they've been pushing for a new team.

A failing franchise will move to Seattle before the clippers do.

Like I said, bad business move to leave LA, even if he is sharing the city with the Lakers.

Sterling could just shut the doors and put every employee in the unemployment line.

That would be a dumb move for him.

Sure he's losing sponsors now, but he can sell this team for a lot.

Two of the more marketable players in the league and in the 2nd biggest market in the US.
And once he leaves those sponsors will come right back.

I use to agree with the guy about the NBA sucking but honestly in the last 3 or 4 year the NBA has dramatically risen. Now mind you I really only watch the playoffs because the regular season has no meaning with half the league getting into the postseason.

He would be removed. He doesn't own the building. If he really wants to push it the rosters will sit out. This is a lose lose for him. He cannot really win. Even if he could win legally, which is doubtful, to what end? No one is playing for him, no one is coaching for him, and no one will invest in his business for sponsorships.

Silver also gave a very specific provision, 75% vote can expel him. He isn't making that number up.

Seattle is a great basketball town who wants a team. Vegas is riskier, but also possible.

If he was still married with a public girlfriend, he should have expected getting rolled at some point.

Like said though, why move from LA? (It has been shown in other sports and other large markets you can still gain a lot of money while splitting with another team)

Teams like Toronto, Minnesota,Sacramento, Milwuakee etc will move to Seattle before.

As great as a fan base Seattle has, you don't leave LA for it. Especially with the stars you have now.

Meh, people are acting shocked and outraged, but he has a documented history of this. The NBA and the NAACP have egg on their faces here, along with several others.

People knew about his history, but they were more concerned about the dollars in this bank account than his racist views.

Also, to all of the people feeling like justice was done, you'd better hope a fellow employee doesn't record you and go play it to the boss next time you're grumbling.

What was done here was illegal. I'm not celebrating any of it because two wrongs don't make a right. This old guy is an awful man, but using someone's private conversation against him and the press picking it up and running with it like this is garbage.

Seattle's story is a little different. The owner turned down the deal he asked for originally. A team would do well there. And why? No Lakers. They stink for a few years, but the Clippers have a tough time ever outshining them long term.

The shitty part about this is that this ass bag says some racist comments, and a bunch of people get all pissed off. Has anyone listened to rap lately? A lot of people must have the perfect job. I can tell you where I work I hear more racial shit about white people in front of everyone of all races and nobody says shit. This racial crap has become a one way street. I as a man,a husband,a father,and an employee respect those above and around me. It's messed up that a lot of the people in this are crying racism and say the say some stuff towards another race. Enough is enough damn and most of us are slaves to the job but don't make millions doing it.

Actually you can take their stuff if the stuff comes with bylaws stating the stuff can be taken if they do certain things, like cause 15 sponsors to cancel. Its about money.

So do the Mets, Nets and Jets in NY and they make tons of money just because where they are.

It's a matter of being in the market is all I'm talking about.
Magic would be stupid to move them from there if he bought the team, especially where they are now.
The sponsors will come back once Sterling is gone.
