I don't think it's an over reaction. It's exactly the sort of punishment that needs to be handed down.

Fines mean nothing to these people. They can pay it in a blink of an eye.

Get gem out of the sport, show them that those views won't be tolerated

I don't know as some NBA teams are losing money.
But I guess he is making a lot as he is known for being tight

If him making some money gets him out of sport then so be it. You don't own NBA teams if u aren't minted anyway so it's not as if he's short of cash.

The important thing here is the principle. Show the world that racism won't be tolerated.

I agree with you but wonder if this is more an action from a PR perspective than a genuine stand against racism.

Anyway lawsuits will be filed in this case

Surely if he is forced to sell (I believe that's what they're going to try do although not entirely sure what's required to do that) then he's going to get massively low-balled anyways as he's basically forced to accept whatever he's given?

He's also going to be giving away a substantial amount of whatever he does get through the sale in taxes so he's hardly leaving this situation as a winner.

Good points well he is ancient so he doesn't need the cash for long

Just watched the Wizards beat the Bulls to clinch the series, and although I only watched one game and clearly the Wizards have some talent, I do think that playing against a Bulls team that simply can't score is a massive help. The Bulls offence was horrendous, and they needed Noah to dominate to stand a chance and he was quiet again.

If Atlanta beats out Indiana then Washington v Atlanta is going to be a much unexpected 2nd round matchup!

In the West, Scott Brooks is probably on the verge of losing his job, and Mark Jackson may be joining him.

I'm a Wizards fan watched the whole series,
That Bulls team could win it all next year if D Rose comes back ok and they get a scorer at SF
Maybe making a run at Carmelo.
