Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban: Firing Sterling Would Be a 'Slippery Slope'

'If it's about racism and we're ready to kick people out of the league, okay, then what about homophobia?'

Mark Cuban's 'Slippery Slope' Comment Is Why No One Thinks The NBA Will Force Donald Sterling To Sell The Clippers (Business Insider)

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he doesn't support the NBA's forcing Donald Sterling to sell the Los Angeles Clippers after his racism scandal.

He called it a "slippery slope" that would set a precedent for the league ousting owners because of their personal views in the future.

Cuban told the Associated Press:

"Again, there's no excuse for his positions. There's no excuse for what he said. There's no excuse for anybody to support racism. There's no place for it in our league, but there's a very, very, very slippery slope."
