Timeline: The Ouster of Donald Sterling

Based on reporting by Jeff Zillgitt, USA Today Sports and the playoff schedule released by the National Basketball Association to media

There is a process and timeline the NBA must follow in order to oust Sterling, and that is detailed in its constitution and bylaws. Silver has three days to provide Sterling with the charges, Sterling has five days to respond and the Board of Governors then will vote within 10 days of Sterling’s response, according the constitution and bylaws.Jeff Zillgitt, USA Today Sports

Mikeylito comments:

I’m suggesting that the NBA Conference Finals may be in jeopardy if the NBA’s Board of Governors doesn’t take action on Mr. Sterling’s removal by that time.

And so it goes.

Ciao for now!

Brian Shaw: The Chicken or The Egg

You would have to think that there are only two hurdles to Brian Shaw becoming the coach of the Clippers.

1.  The “summit” between Sterling and Shaw.
2.  Working out a contract.

Why only two?
Shaw had already indicated, according to The Detroit News, that he was “holding out” for the Clippers’ job.  Now, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, the Clippers have made Shaw their #1 target.

Which comes first?
