    not provide revenue is appropriate.  But why not the players.  They're really the ones who provide the revenue to the old bastard.  
    It would work fast.  The NBA would have to step in and do something quick.  This is during the playoffs, their big cash cow.

        isn't a big surprise with Sterling.  The timing certainly sucks for the players and the team, here they are seriously trying for a championship.

      necessarily providing him revenue by playing. I also think they would breach their contracts. If fans go, I think they shouldn't spend a dime on concessions. He still has to pay for the workers, security, etc. so prevent him from recouping any of that money through overpriced food and drink. I believe the parking lots around the Staples Center are privately owned but if somehow he get a cut of that then everyone should strive to take public transportation (such as it is) to deprive him of that revenue.
