That's actually a very legitimate question lol. I suspect he might to save some face but at the same time there's a very good chance he would never do that. But at the end of the day money is money.

Why not? why does he care how much Sterling makes. Thats why im finding it hard to believe Sterling will have no say in who he sells it too. Will Sterling give them a number and silver has to sell them for that number.

Bc they still have to sell it for the right price. But there are several groups that have expressed interest in buying them for $1B+

The 1st amendment doesn't apply when your apart of a organization like the nba and under it's constitution has to right to do what they did if any way shape or form they feel has threaten it's image and loses money as well

I don't know why that's so hard to understand.

If I recall correctly, when Mayweather wasn't able to set a date to fight Pacqiao, he went off on a rant over it.

Edit: Found an article on it http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=5527403

Video too I think:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjiV0hCUpSQ

I don't like throwing the word up either (perhaps he was just going off), but the NBA doesn't exactly need a new face like this to replace a guy who lost the team for also making racist comments.

Every culture/background of the NBA should be protected. Every employee/owner should be held accountable for racial comments.

I'm a little surprised that Kevin Johnson hasn't faced any repercussions for his comments about an "All-Black" League. The NBA isn't only black, and I don't really care if it was a response to Sterling's comments, as an executive (and as an adult surprisingly enough), he should know when to keep his mouth shut.

But floyd and p.diddy might be fitting since they are professionals and businessman. NBA don't want a "thug" to own a team

Well one thing I know is its not so much these guys collectively buying in but rather they are front men for others behind the scenes with the real "Cash on hand" to make such a purchase. Honestly the one guy I would love to see come out of nowhere and just buy the team to stick it to the masses would be Mark Zuckerberg or however you spell is name from Facebook. He has the finances to make it happen outright.

Diddy the only one that could do that. Ross I don't have him in there, Flloyd either. I don't really like the whole lifestyle those guys have. Diddy is the only professional one that carries himself as such.

BTW does Ross even have money like that. The image Ross portrays wouldn't be good for the league.

Terrible idea and would never pass. You think Sterling is racist? Imagine the outcry of all these white owners denying the blacks ownership. The fact is there are many more racist than Sterling...he was just caught in his own privacy.

04-30-2014, 11:58 AM
lol. There's no way they can let Mayweather even be a part owner in the clippers. Sterling is ousted for making disgusting private racist comments against blacks and they're going to let Mayweather buy into the team after making public racist comments against Asians? Hypocrisy at it's best. No way it can or should happen. I remember his racist rant from a few years ago well. And for those who didn't bother to look at the link.

Mayweather while talking about the Asian Paquiao: "I'm on vacation for about a year, about a year," Mayweather said. "As soon as we come off vacation, we're going to cook that little yellow chump. We ain't worried about that. So they ain't gotta worry about me fighting the midget. Once I kick the midget ***, I don't want you all to jump on my d---. So you all better get on the bandwagon now. ... Once I stomp the midget, I'll make that mother f----- make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice."

This is the guy who's going to be part of a group replacing Sterling? :) I don't think so.

You do realize it's a "character". He's one if the fakest guys out there. Former corrections officer if I'm not mistaken. And I wouldn't call Floyd racist I think that whole situation was just a rant that came from not being able to set up the fight. Sterling, as much as his privacy was violated, actually feels like that and feels that blacks are inferior. It's one thing to make stereotypes, which are everywhere today and said by everyone, and it's another to feel your race is superior then another. Both are hurtful no doubt but they are 2 totally different things.

So we are going to get rid of a guy that made a bigoted comment for a guy who beat his girlfriends? Who has been to prison? How about we sell it to Diddy who has gun charges? How about we let Jay Z own another team even though he openly admited to selling crack and said far more detrimental things than Sterling ever said on his songs.

Magic and his group are the only ones that should be an option.

There's nothing wrong with Floyd Mayweather legally gambling on NBA games when he's not affiliated with ownership of any franchise. As of right now, he's just a guy with a ton of money that gambles on basketball games. I'm sure as an owner, especially one of a Clippers franchise going through such ownership turmoil, he'd be made well aware of the fact he can no longer gamble on basketball games.

I also think Money Mayweather as a part owner of the Clippers would be a wonderful idea. He'd be a Hollywood guy in Los Angeles and bring even more star power to the Clippers franchise. He definitely knows how to market himself, so other players would probably flock to the Clippers to have him market them. It's not likely he'd be involved in basketball decisions anyway. Just major star power.

This goes beyond privacy concerns. The guy's obviously an unrepentant racist. And you can't have that in a global, multiethnic sport where 75 percent of the players are black.
Just because he happened to be caught in a private moment doesn't change what he is. He hurts the NBA financially, the nail in the coffin, whether his statements are made on a radio station or in the privacy of his own home.
People need to stop using the privacy defense for this guy. That's like saying Mitt Romney shouldn't be bashed because it was a private event at which he was recorded saying that 47 percent of Americans' don't matter to the Republican party.

There is absolutely no way the NBA lets Floyd get partial ownership of a team. After this whole mess they are going to want a clean cut owner with no major issues in the past which Floyd isn't. For one, he has made a lot of his gambling issues public. He gambles on the NBA constantly and that is a no go especially in this situation. Not to mention Floyd has had a few run in's with the law within the past few years. My guess is the NBA wouldn't take that lightly either. I actually think he is a smart enough guy to be an owner but his issues wont allow it.

Exactly. People gotta be smarter. Obviously NBA won't give to team to just anyone. Oprah/Geffen/Ellison group would have the best chance at this. Anyways that's how I go with.

Rick Ross has no chance
Floyd has no chance

Their public image just isn't what I would want in an NBA owner if I'm the NBA.

Rick Ross either acts or wants to act like he portrays himself in his songs. Even if he doesn't that's the message he's sending out to the world, he's the guy who thinks 'Put molly all in her champagne/ She ain't even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain't even know it' isn't date rape
