They did not specify terms of the sale after the owners vote. Would it be possible that some one like Hansen's group in Seattle or a group in say San Diego purchase the team and move them to a new location?

Kevin Johnson is on TV launching his bid for Governor.

Corona is the last sponsor to drop Clippers, who are left with zero total sponsors only a lingering and indecisive State Farm.


Which is why a forced-sale probably isn't even necessary. Its in his financial interests to sell.

Any chance of banning Dolan for life?

Interesting aside...NBA bans Sterling for life and urges its board to force his sale of team!

Dtaft time is CRAZY...



I've seen the same people who preach "deepest draft ever " and bpa, then hypothetically trade up using multiple picks..


I've seen people say we have too many picks, seen guys trade back for picks... seen guys trade back just to trade up (Jugling picks like a magician )



I've seen 4th round prospects jump to first round prospects literally over night... saw Bridgewatwer go from 1st overall to 1st in the 2nd...


THE NFL!

@williamg1  As a musician I'd ban him for his awful music alone. What a travesty. I'd then calmly take his guitar, beat him senseless with it and then write a song about it.

@Marvel  aaaaaaand unless something crazy happens, Geno will start week 1 of the season as well.


Think about this, why risk letting Vick get away next year by signing him to a one year deal if he's your guy. Why not protect yourself with some option years?


Now Vick can very well win the job and have a really nice year. Then what? Some other azz clown team comes in and over pays him to be their starter?


I dunno, Idzik strikes me as a long term guy. If he were setting up a one and done year for Vick I would imagine he would have brought in DJax and maybe sold out for Mevis.

@Marvel Only 9 more days!!! The draft really should have happened already. It prevents guys from slipping because "their knees are too skinny". Jets need to move up, not in the first round, but to the second round to get a stellar CB/WR/TE combo.

@a57se Why would he be mad at her? She didn't leak the tape.

I was surprised.   Wasn't sure Silver was going to make as clear a statement as he did.   Sterling also fined $2.5M...the max under NBA rules.

@Bytor

 honestly if Geno isn't the guy, we are drafting a qb early next year.



doesnt matter if Vick starts week 1 , 8 or not at all, he  is insurance. Simple.

@a57se Nope. That would be his mistress, the half-black, half-Mexican woman who Sterling was telling not to hang out with black people. 


The wife is suing the mistress for like $1.6 million (gifts that Sterling gave the mistress) and that's why the mistress can't really talk to the NBA right now, but apparently they didn't have to ask her too many detailed questions to get to the bottom of it. 


But it wasn't Sterling's wife that leaked it, it was the mistress.

Isn't his ex the one who recorded the conversation and leaked it to the media?

@a57se Recording artist MIA is being sued for $16.6m by the NFL for giving the finger during the SB halftime show. 


It's laughable, to say the least.

Silver did what he could do based on the rules of the NBA....to demand more from him or fault him for not doing more is just dumb.

@Bent @Hazard2012 @WW85  


Maybe so, but it's a lot of money, regardless, and the biggest fine I can recall against any owner/player in any sport in this country.

@Hazard2012 @WW85  $2.5m to Sterling is equivalent to $100.80 for an average American per Darren Rovell.

I am not surprised.....I am awaiting the DOJ charging Sterling with something or other and our President to chime in....

@a57se @Bent  We'll see how Geno fares this year, but I'm a lot more bullish on him than you. With Dalton, you kind of know what you have already. With those weapons, sheesh, put ME in Marvin. I'll take you to the promised land in my 40s.

@a57se @Bent  Take a good look at Vick's passing efficiency before he went to Philly and then after under the coaching of MM.  That was no accident and there's no saying he can't do the exact same thing with Geno who has a much more accurate arm.

@a57se @Bytor @Marvel  The Bengals are a healthy Tony Romo from being elite. You're right that team is pretty stacked. They could use a coach too.

@a57se @Marvel @Bytor  Just like any other team that drafted a QB to be their starter and his name is not Luck. Cincy is still trying to figure out if Dalton is their guy. I'd hate to be their GM.

Chances are we won't know the answer to the Geno question after this season either.

 not sure, too far in the future for me.hopefully Geno is the guy.

Bytor

@Marvel @Bytor  Bingo! We all seem to concede that Vick will get hurt at some point. Doesn't seem like the guy to hitch your wagon to. Perfect guy to come in if Geno gets hurt and run the WCO or if Geno poops the bed.

@Marvel @Bytor  


Either drafting one next year or getting one via FAcy.   What, if any, top QB's might be FA's next year?
