  •  Silver shines. Sterling's rep forever tarnished. (14+ / 0-)

    OK I had to try that.

    I'm encouraged by the result, but the institutional racism so pervasive in criminal justice, housing,  employment - that is not going to budge from this NBA resolution.  This country has far more to do than marginalize a few haters like Sterling, the Duck guy and others...

      The players are now asking for a "seat at the table" -- I'd assume that means they want representation on the Board of Governors and other league commissions. Sterling may have unwillingly contributed to a needed overhaul of the NBA, which could spread to sports in general.

      •  That's nice and all but there are regular people (0+ / 0-)

        who struggle every day against a system stacked against them.  I would like to see the NBA cleaned up, but it's nothing compared to the other challenges.
