I've been listening to Adam Carolla recently and I find his honesty refreshing.

Here he is talking about Hollywood hypocrisy.

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."

He said forcing Sterling to sell would be un-American:

"But regardless of your background, regardless of the history they have, if we're taking something somebody said in their home and we're trying to turn it into something that leads to you being forced to divest property in any way, shape or form, that's not the United States of America. I don't want to be part of that."

Cuban's comments are not a promising sign for those who want NBA commissioner Adam Silver to use the so-called nuclear option that is, calling on the NBA board of governors to terminate Sterling's ownership.

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Silver has been "studying" the option.

But experts disagree on whether the nuclear option even exists in the NBA's constitution, and no one thinks it will happen. A source told ESPN that there are "less than 1 in 100 million odds" that Silver forces Sterling to sell.

In theory, though, Silver could ask the board of governors, which consists of the 30 league owners, to vote on terminating Sterling's ownership.

It'd require a three-fourths majority to pass, according to ESPN legal analyst Lester Munson.

And that's where Cuban's comment comes into play. By voting to eliminate Sterling, NBA owners would be setting a precedent for stripping owners of their property.

No matter how strongly they feel about Sterling's comments, you aren't going to find 23 owners who are willing to vote against their own self-interest creating a road map that future owners could use to strip them of their franchises.

UPDATE: After Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and moved to force a sale of the Clippers, Cuban tweeted that he 100% supports the decision.

Why are media people so retarded?  They are trying to say how he can sell the Clippers for $1 billion.  Don't they realize unlike any other team in the NBA that the clippers do NOT have a stadium that they own.  The clippers as part of some agreement get to play in Staples that the Lakers own rent free and did the same at the old forum.  The clippers are worth only a few hundred million since they don't have anything else, no land, no stadium.  Just the team and naming rights for merchandise.

Forbes values the team at $575 Million.

Donald Sterling bought the team in 1981 for $12 million.

Revenue $124 million

Profit $15 million

Players expenses $80 million

Weird. King Arnold has his own jet and sets of pilots why would he lower his standards?

A small private jet might not have the range to make it to Europe.

Is it fair to call her a gold-digging whore?

The dictionary should have her name and picture after the definition

He bought her a Ferrari, two Bentley's, a Range Rover, a $1,800,000 duplex in Beverly Hills, and $240,000 in living expenses.  This is how she repays him.   Undecided

I listen to the tape the guy is not racist he was just pissed that the bitch is hang out with black dudes in public and the bitch was edging him on trying to get him to say racist shit and he never once used a racist word, fucking gold digging hoe.

That's my opinion too.  If he was truly a racist, why would he be dating a half black woman and own a mostly black NBA team.  This gold digger taping him without his knowledge trying to get him to say something racist to blackmail him is disgusting.  I bet she tried to get him to pay for the tapes before she leaked them and he wouldn't do it.
39  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Los Angeled Clipper owner tells Girlfriend dont bring Negros to my games on: April 26, 2014, 01:18:11 PM
First, this gold digger tapes their private phone call without his knowledge.  Who doesn't tape their "loved" ones when talking on the phone.  Then, when he breaks up with her she leaks it to the press and you tube.   If she's upset he's a racist why does she care if he breaks up with him.  Because she wants his money and doesn't give a damn about him.  This is the kind of woman all men need to avoid.   Wink

Well his program to kickstart the economy and re-institute some of the "New Deal" (which was largely responsible for the Great Post-War Prosperity) have been blocked by the GOP who have revised history to trick people who are ignorant into willingly swallow oligarchy.

Wall Street Journal Feb 17,2014

THE STIMULUS ANNIVERSARY
Five years ago today, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law. The $830 billion spending blowout was sold by the White House as a way to keep unemployment from rising above 8%. But the stimulus would fail on its own terms. 2009 marked the first of four straight years when unemployment averaged more than 8%. And of course the unemployment rate would have been even worse in those years and still today if so many people had not quit the labor force, driving labor-participation rates to 1970s levels.

The Obama White House had been egged on by liberal economists like Paul Krugman, who in November of 2008 recommended a stimulus of at least $600 billion. Team Obama worked with Democrats in Congress to exceed his minimum request by more than 30%. But after the failure of the stimulus the same liberal economists who had enthusiastically supported the plan would claim that its main flaw was that it was too small.
Shortly after the passage of the Recovery Act in 2009, Vice President Joseph Biden urged local politicians not to spend the money on "stupid things." They ignored his advice, and so did Mr. Biden. The federal government poured billions into the government and education sectors, where unemployment was low, but spent only about 10% on promised infrastructure, though the unemployment rate in construction was running in double digits. And some of the individual projects funded by the law were truly appalling. $783,000 was spent on a study of why young people consume malt liquor and marijuana. $92,000 went to the Army Corps of Engineers for costumes for mascots like Bobber the Water Safety Dog. $219,000 funded a study of college "hookups."

If the President had used the 830 Billion dollars wisely, the economy would have recovered.

ferrari,pagani,lambo,koiensiegggg,mercedes,poreshe,mcClaren,aston martin i could go on what does america have? corvette lol

I was eleven years old when I realized Japanese cars were better than American cars.  European cars are viewed as being unreliable and expensive to fix.  Give me a used Accord over a used Audi A4 any day.

Too much leg presses and not enough squats.

not according to the DowJones or my 27% return on investments from last year.

Those were one time returns because the market had fallen so far.  Can you do as well in 2014, 2015, 2016.  The stock market is not the economy.

  Cry this is my 7th thread ever...OK THATS IT THREADS OVER YOU CAN ALL FUCK OFF  Grin

I wish Getbig had a car forum.  The problem is the G&O forum is the only one that gets descent traffic. 

The Car forums are much more regulated than Getbig and the discussion aren't as honest or as funny.

48  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: US vs Euro cars on: April 20, 2014, 02:55:05 PM
dont you dare mention laferrari and dodge avenger in the same. sentance! Grin
fiat dosnt make ferrari, they just own them, same as they dont make chrysler, chrysler make chrysler but are owned by fiat.

That's like saying GM doesn't make the Cadillac CTS or Procter and Gamble doesn't make Tide.

 FCA owns the following brands:
Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Ram Trucks and SRT.


49  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: US vs Euro cars on: April 20, 2014, 02:37:55 PM
You realize the same company that makes the LaFerrari also makes the Dodge Avenger.   Lips sealed  

I believe Fiat has been a better owner of Chrysler than Mercedes ever was.  However, Chrysler is still in very rough shape and relies heavily on Ram pickup sales.

Sergio said in his 60 minutes interview that if you can't compete in the compact car market you are finished.  The Dart has been a total flop.  Low gas prices are saving Chrysler, but for how long.

ford escort was also a very good rally car. but no ford is not on the list. only corvette.

Man, I'm just trolling.  My point is that most of the cars you mentioned are north of 100K and 200K.  That's less than 1 percent of the total automotive market.  Ferrari makes some of the most beautiful cars in the world, but they will only sell 3000 units this year.

Two of the three American auto companies went bankrupt in the last five years.  They all need to focus on what customer are actually buying in volume.  I don't care that GM doesn't make a Ferrari fighter, but I do care that the Camry is outselling the Malibu by a wide margin.

In the 1960's GM had 50 percent of the US auto market and probably the highest market cap of any company in America.  They were the equivalent of Apple today.  The fact that they have fallen so far is a disgrace.  Unfortunately, the current management seems no better than the last.
