What can the NBA do about unwanted owners?

Marketplace - American Public Media - Mon, 2014-04-28 06:52

The National Basketball Association says it's first order of business is to verify whether or not it's the voice of the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling, making disparaging remarks about African American people. The tape is allegedly a conversation between Sterling and his mixed-race girlfriend V. Stiviano. The man on the tape urges Stiviano not to bring her black friends to LA Clippers games. Taking photos with black people is like, quote, "talking to the enemy." Magic Johnson and Charles Barclay are among former NBA players who say if the tape is really the Clipper's owner then Sterling can't keep owning the team. For some perspective, we turn to Kenneth Shropshire, director of the Wharton Sports Business Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania.
