Slava Voynov's situation has been odd from the beginning. As the details come out, it becomes more and more despicable. Voynov beat his wife within an inch of her life. He was suspended indefinitely, but the Kings thought it would be smart to let him practice. That cost the Kings $ 100,000 in fines.

The Donald Sterling saga finally came to an end in Los Angeles. To get the Clippers out of his grasp, all that was needed was a tape recorder, a scorned mistress, TMZ, a viral internet, racist remarks, a new commissioner looking to take a stand and $ 2 billion.

The only thing that could have beaten the Sterling incident was an NFL star hitting his then fiancee on video. It changed the way the entire country looks at domestic violence. The day that TMZ released that video of Ray Rice dragging his now wife out of an elevator, people were appalled. When the second video surfaced to see the incident, it became even worse. This was by far the most shocking moment of 2014.
