I know the NBA are capable and well within their rights to do that, but I don't think they should do that. Something like this has never been done before, so it does create precedent.
kinda doubt Silver will let him leave the team in his family when he's specifically forcing him to sell the team. anyway, i kind of doubt this will "set precedent" past the obvious "if you are a bigot and it is publically known then you don't deserve to own an NBA team". none of the other current NBA owners are bigoted afaik, so i don't think any of them have very much to worry about. an NBA team is like any other franchised business, just on a much larger scale. if darkie owned a Dunkin Donuts as a franchisee and put a sign in the window that said "darkies not welcome", there's roughly no chance DD would let him keep that franchise.Perhaps he'd make it easy on everyone and he'll turn up mysteriously in a ditch somewhere. Or heck, maybe he'll give it to his former wife as a divorce settlement, would be fair enough for a guy that's probably gonna pay out as much anyways due to community property laws if he sells the team.
