The idea that you can strip someone of millions of dollars and take away their livelihood for engaging in free speech which hurt no one...and in private...is the most racist thing that blacks can do. And they enjoy it.
I hope he beats the pants off them.

Then he's suing the wrong person. The NBA owners have not voted to strip Sterling of his team. His wife is the one who made the deal and agreed to sell.
Donald was condemned for talking in private with his airhead girlfriend. The true heroes of sports today are guys like Michael Strahan, the former New York Giant who is now on the cover of Parade magazine’s for Father’s Day. Strahan has four kids, two ex-wives, and refuses to find a third wife to help him take care of the kids.
One of the ex-wives accused him of beating her and he is famous for tracking his present girlfriend with GPS because he thinks she might be unfaithful.
But all is forgiven because the Father of the Year is black and campaigns for gay marriage.

From what I heard on a radio interview last week with a lawyer/accountant who is familiar with the legal technicalities of this kind of case, Sterling's real motivation is that he needs to get this case into a courtroom so he can claim that the NBA is forcing him to make the sale in a legal process instead of under the NBA's governing bylaws. From what this guy said, there are very favorable capital gains tax rules if you are being forced against your will to sell an asset in a legal process. This kind of thing is usually found in eminent domain proceedings. If I paid $500,000 for a commercial building and it's worth $2 million a couple of decades later, I am on the hook for capital gains taxes on the $1.5 gain if I sell the asset today. But from what this lawyer/CPA said, there is a more favorable tax treatment if I am forced to sell it to the state against my will so they can build a highway or public school there.
We'll see how this unfolds, I guess.

They could get rid of him because the league is private and all those entering have to sign papers saying you have to go by their rules.
Sterling made the mistake of letting his views on sensitive topics see the light of day into the media.
I agree with him in getting all these investigators to get the stuff on others, why should he be the only one not getting a free pass?
