Mavericks owner Mark Cuban fears slippery slope trying to force Donald Sterling to sell Clippers


Punishing people for how they think instead of what they do is very dangerous. Cuban agrees.

CBS Dallas reports prior to Game 4 of the NBA Playoffs pitting his Dallas Mavericks against the San Antonio Spurs, owner Mark Cuban made his first comments to the media regarding mark cubanthe alleged racially-charged comments from Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Even though the owners have only spoke five times in the past 14 years, Cuban pulled no punches in calling Sterling’s comments “abhorrent.”

Often railing on the perils of an overly recorded and monitored society, Cuban added that he fears punishment could create a “slippery slope,” saying, “If we start trying to legislate morality, we’ve got much bigger problems.”

“There’s no place for racism in the NBA, any business I’m associated with,” Cuban said. “But at the same time, that’s a decision I make. I think you’ve got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do.”
