Should Sterling Be Forced To Sell The Clippers?

Thursday, May 01, 2014

After those racists comments made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling were confirmed, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned him from the league for life, fined him $2.5 million and said the other owners would force him to sell the team.

But there are critics of the idea that Sterling should be forced to sell the Clippers. As Mike Pesca writes in Slate, “Donald Sterling is a vile racist… But even a horrible human being doesn’t deserve to have his property stripped away.”

Pesca discusses that point of view with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson.
