Mark Cuban rails against Donald Sterling, but not in favor of kicking out owner Published: April 29, 2014

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes the NBA would be a better league without Donald Sterling in it, but Cuban called the potential scenario of forcing the Los Angeles Clippers owner to sell the team "a slippery slope."

Cuban made his strong comments on Monday prior to an impending announcement by the NBA Tuesday on the investigation of Sterling.

"I think there's a [league] constitution for a reason, right?" Cuban said before Game 4 of the Mavericks-San Antonio Spurs series. "Because this is a very slippery slope. What Donald said was wrong. It was abhorrent. There's no place for racism in the NBA, any business I'm associated with, and I don't want to be associated with people who have that position.

"But at the same time, that's a decision I make. I think you've got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. It's a very, very slippery slope."
