"He is not going to go down without a fight… And that is the last thing the NBA needs right now." - A. Sherrod Blakely

Where does the NBA go from here?

Bob Ryan and A. Sherrod Blakely join Arbella Early Edition to give their opinion on how they expect the NBA to respond to Donald Sterling's comments.

"The owners, the other twenty-nine," said Ryan, "have got to get together to exert what possible peer pressure they can to tell him, 'You are a pariah. We will make it clear to the world that we want nothing to do with you. You do not represent what we represent."

"You hope it forces him to sell." continued Ryan, "There's no other legal way to make him [leave]."

Blakely agrees with Ryan's plan, but he is worried that Sterling won't listen. 

"He doesn't care about peer pressure. At least, he hasn't in the past" said Blakely, "He is not going to go down without a fight… And that is the last thing the NBA needs right now."
