Although Adam Silver dropped the lifetime ban hammer, the Donald Sterling saga is far from over. The racist Clippers owner may not be able to attend games, but he can still profit from them and that power is something that only his fellow owners can take away.
Sacramento Kings owner, Vivek Ranadive, believes he and his peers will do just that in unanimous fashion.
“I would be surprised if this was not a unanimous vote,” Ranadive said during the interview. “The owners are amazing people — they’re color-blind — and I fully expect a unanimous vote.”
As long as Sterling and his slave master mentality are allowed to profit off the backs of African-American players, justice has not been served. I hope Ranadive is right and that they make the decision in a swift manner.
