Suit: Clippers Owner Showed Women Nude Players: In a wrongful termination suit, former Los Angeles Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor claims that owner Donald Sterling used to bring women into the locker room while players were showering and make comments like "look at those beautiful black bodies."

Obviously the NBA does not have the same power at MLB does in suspending owners because you compare Sterling's body of work to Steinbrenners and you have to ask yourself why Sterling has not been asked to take a year off away from the team and ask himself some hard questions about his behavior in running this franchise

Even if you don't want to accept Baylor's claims as being accurate, there is a lot of other issues in Sterlings body of work (including the claims of prejudicial rental practices made by the DOJ) that would not be tolerated in other leagues.

It is either an indictment or a testament to Donald Sterling that my initial reaction is, "That sounds entirely plausible."

Another nominee in contention for the award of:

Wow. Moron.

Except I suspect that Sterling may be much worse than merely just a moron.
