Mark Cuban is a coward. We need to start there before we go any further. He has now twice completely dropped the ball with his comments about the Donald Sterling situation. It started when he first said this wasn’t the time to talk about this because of the playoffs and it continues with his most recent comments. Now according to ESPN Dallas, he is saying that he is against removing Donald Sterling:

“I think there’s a constitution for a reason, right? Because this is a very slippery slope,” Cuban said before Game 4 of the Mavericks-San Antonio Spurs┬áseries. “What Donald said was wrong. It was abhorrent. There’s no place for racism in the NBA, any business I’m associated with, and I don’t want to be associated with people who have that position.

“But at the same time, that’s a decision I make. I think you’ve got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. It’s a very, very slippery slope.

Of course he made sure to say over and over again that racism is bad and he doesn’t want to be associated with it. However here is what Mr Cuban fails to realize: by coming out against removing Sterling, you are standing with a racist. You may claim to not want to be associated with it or with Sterling but your cowardly stance of doing nothing but saying you are against racism does nothing. Doing nothing to Sterling as the league has done for years only enables him more.

You said we can’t make blanket statements about what people say and think as opposed to what they do so what do your actions say about you?

    ^^^ seriously. He’s a coward because he doesn’t feel he has the right to kick sterling out of the league for his views? And I love how you say “we need to start there before we go any further” like it’s a fact. he’s not enabling sterling or supporting him. he’s just saying that people have a right to their views, no matter how unpopular that view may be.

    Personally, while I don’t agree with sterling, I don’t understand how you can kick him out of the league for what he said in a private conversation. I can understand if dude spoke at a KKK rally or said these comments in a public forum, but I just can’t wrap my head around a private conversation being used to throw him out of the league. If they could prove that he also discriminated against blacks and wouldn’t hire them or whatever, then I could understand. But I don’t see any proof of that

    I agree Sterling should be able to have his views. And should, of course, field an All white team.

    Good luck

    How much of a moron can you be ?? of course what sterling did was wrong, but in the same breath stop acting all emotional when writing these stories. you are supposed to be a journalist. how is cuban a coward? he is an owner and he is protecting his investments because you may not see it but he is 110% right. sterling may be a scum, but its HIS MONEY , he OWNS the team. by removing HIS team from him without him being charged with a crime makes no sense. and that is why cuban says its a slippery slope. cuban is a very controversial person himself, not for the same reasons as sterling obviously but he is very vocal and is always criticizing the NBA and referees. if they start taking away the teams like this, what is stopping them from taking away his team if they someday get tired of him complaining or something like that ( it may sound extreme but i am saying this to prove his point) the best thing that could happen is the fans boycotting the team, almost all the sponsors all pulling out. if this continues then sterling will be forced to sell. but i agree with cuban even though he is bad as a person . you cant just take away his team because he is an ass as a person. those are his opinions, as bad as they may be.
