I know Sterling hasn't committed a crime. Actually, his girlfriend could be prosecuted. And she should be.
But I disagree that the NBA is being wise about this. Yes, I hate bigotry too, but in a free society you don't need heavy-handed, authoritarian measures to punish from above. I guess I'm being a bit idealistic to say that I wish Sterling could be free to make his mistakes and suffer the natural consequences. In an ideal world, a guy like this isolates himself from the best in society. I just think this is way overblown, and a huge distraction. Again, his views disgust me. But as far as I know, he is not a violent person. I think he should be left alone with himself.
