DALLAS — Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks the NBA would be a better league without Donald Sterling in it, but Cuban called the potential scenario of forcing the Los Angeles Clippers owner to sell the team in wake of the racist comments allegedly made by him “a slippery slope.”
Cuban was one of several NBA owners to make strong comments about Sterling on Monday, a day before commissioner Adam Silver was scheduled to hold a news conference in New York to announce the league’s investigation into the issue.
However, Cuban was the only one to express concern about the precedent that could be set by forcing Sterling to leave the league.
“I think there’s a [league] constitution for a reason, right?” Cuban said before Game 4 of the Mavericks-San Antonio Spurs series. “Because this is a very slippery slope. What Donald said was wrong.
