A similar situation arose quite recently when Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver was accused of derogatory racial remarks and sexual misconduct. Almost an entire year after the allegations were taken up, nearly 70 victims of the oppressor gave their statement to the investigators of the matters.

Adam Silver took a much different route while punishing Sarver for his actions. The consequences include being banned for an entire year from all Suns related events, both on and off court, as well as $10 million compensation. People were surprised of Silver’s lenient punishment considering he urges Sterling to sell the team.

Players like LeBron James and former president of the NBPA Chris Paul claims that the severity of the punishment was too low. CP3 in particular claimed the league “fell short” of what they should have done. The Commissioner claimed that he had done whatever he could in his power and that firing Sarver was a decision only the man could make himself.
