    blacks disassociate with gays as much as most athletes. there will be no big backlash.

    He was only against gay marriage , that's a position many people have, especially in 2009. He was not against gays in general. Since the Interview was in 2009. His answer is easy, it should have been......
    I was against gay marriage because I was supporting the platform of president Barack Obama . Obama was against gay marriage as well in 2008 election cycle.

    This article does show us one thing, people are sniffing around all the NBA owners past .

    Nope but I am smart enough to know that the answer I posted would immediately get the gay rights activists to back off.

    Capital gains taxes if Sterling sells

    Has anyone here taken into consideration that Sterling would have to pay like $200 - $300 million in capital gains taxes because of the evil democrappy regime who cannot create jobs and has to tax us out of our assholes???

    I Posted that days ago yes, 300 million. A family that has never sold a property in a multi billion dollar empire would obviously try to avoid that .

    To kick him out you need outrage both from the media and the players. The players probably support his views with a 80-20 split. So I do not see that happening. Cuban was right though, Sterling's case is a harbinger of the things to come.
