Mark Cuban warns: NBA players could get the Sterling treatment next

Last week in an interview with The Daily Beast, Cuban clarified but reaffirmed his warning.

“I wasn’t referring to other owners with the slippery slope comment,” he said. “But to all of us. Players are far more at risk than owners. We have lawyers. Lots of different interests. Players for the most part have one source of income. The risk isn’t the leagues. Those are collective bargaining agreement issues. The risk is social and fan, i.e. boycotts etc.”

“If Riley Cooper happened in the NBA this summer, it would be a horrible event.”

Riley Cooper is a National Football League player who was caught on tape last summer threatening to “fight every nigger” at a Kenny Chesney concert.
