It’s amazing how far the NBA has come in just a few days. Last Saturday the internet exploded with Donald Sterling‘s racist comments, and by Tuesday afternoon, he was banned from the league for life. That’s what you call taking care of business.

But now the next chapter begins. All the pressure has shifted to the NBA owners and their looming vote to remove Sterling from the league. It will take a 3/4 or 75 percent vote to force a sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, which many feel will be easy to accomplish.

LeBron James sounded off on the next step during an interview via ESPN on Wednesday:

“We’re fighting to get an owner out of our league who shouldn’t be a part of our league. No matter how long it takes, no matter how much money it costs, we need to get him out of there — and whoever is associated with him doesn’t belong in our league. Obviously, it’s not going to be night and day — you wake up tomorrow and the team is in someone else’s hands. But we need to get the next step going.”

James couldn’t be more right. The sooner the NBA can rid itself of Sterling’s out-of-touch ways, the better.

It won’t happen overnight, because there is no timetable for a vote yet. The process to remove an owner involves Sterling getting a written copy of the charges against him and also a special hearing after he replies to the charges. It sounds like best-case-scenario, the vote could take place in a couple of weeks. However, it’s also possible it could be held off until after the season.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
