The awesome thing about being an NBA team owner is that you can get away with, well, basically anything. The LA Times reports: “If you can’t tell from the results, Sterling is a demanding boss who can target bigger game than  Baron Davis. … Like Commissioner David Stern, the boss of bosses. Three sources describe an exchange in an owners meeting in Las Vegas a year or so ago: Sterling: ‘You don’t want to hear what I have to say.’ Stern. ‘Yes, we do.’ Sterling. ‘No you don’t.’ Stern: ‘Yes, we do.’ Sterling: ‘OK, I would fire you. You’re great at marketing, but you’re not tough enough with the union.’”
