C'mon....give me some hope for humanity and refuse to play if this guy is not suspended ASAP. I guess you can give them a pass because maybe they were led to believe this would be dealt with accordingly but if he's still around when the next game rolls around....even Lisa Leslie was going hard on these dudes in the post game show. C'mon now....
The thing is we dont know what happens if the Clippers decide not to play. I dont want to include the rest of the league in this yet, becuase it would have to start with the Clippers but what happens here? Do they forfiet the games? Do the playoffs just get delayed(The less likely of the two options because I just dont think they're going to halt basketball on one teams account). The players get fined, the fans miss games that they've already paid and scheduled for, it just creates a mess.
Those things mentioned have nothing to do with what I think the players should do, but there needs to be more information provided before people start jumping the gun with "X should do Y". People are asking too much of them with little to no information right now.
Clippers players would send a powerful message to Sterling by boycotting a game. Such a maneuver, however, would be in direct violation of their employment contracts. The players would be suspended by the NBA and potentially face significant fines, especially since the NBA would have to refund money to those fans buying tickets. It is worth noting, however, that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits employers from fining individuals for opposing discrimination. NBA contracts can also not "contract around" civil rights protections, meaning NBA players who boycott games over an owners' racism may be protected under the law.
This is basically all that we know, the players would lose their salaries, but not be subject to legal action since this is a civil rights issue, but it would cause a ripple effect that I dont think people have taken into consideration. Something has to be done, but in due time. Rash decision making is not the move right now.
