The Real Reason NBA Wants To Kick Out Donald Sterling

WEALTH CREATION. The real reason the NBA wants to get rid of Donald Sterling is not racism. It's that Sterling has been a passenger on the NBA's wealth creation bus the last 30 years. When Sterling acquired the then-San Diego Clippers, it was a team that drew 5,000 fans on average. (Again, this was the Bird-Magic-Dr.J NBA.)  It was a different league. 

The pre-Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks routinely played before half-empty arenas. (Look it up.) Since then, the star power transformed the league, but Sterling did virtually nothing to improve his own franchise. He just rode the bus.

The other owners must view him as a parasite. But a sale of his Clippers franchise to a motivated owner would help the league continue the exponential growth it enjoyed in the last 25-30 years. That, in turn, will increase the values of all other franchises. 

Now you see what's at stake.
