Last night Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban publicly called for Sterling to receive “the maximum punishment,” and several of the Clippers’ corporate sponsors have pulled their contracts, but selling the Clippers could net Sterling almost $1 billion. Have Sterling and Cliven Bundy embarrassed Chief Justice John Roberts?
