Street Talk: May 5, 2014

Do you think the NBA’s handling of the Donald Sterling situation was appropriate?

“I think it was hard, but the league needed to make a statement.”

— Dan Ainspan, SUNY Oneonta student

“I think it was. If you own a professional sports team you need to be tolerant in all aspects of your life.”

— Chris Oriani, SUNY Oneonta student

“Yes, because the league had to do that; all of his past behavior, such as being a slumlord, forced them to.”

— John Davis, Oneonta, student

“I honestly think it was somewhat excessive; even though the comments were inappropriate, it was a privately recorded conversation.”

— Patrick Jay, Oneonta, tattoo artist

“I think it was appropriate. In a sport mostly played by African Americans, an owner needs to be tolerant.”

— Jeff Stevens, Oneonta, unemployed

“I don’t. The way people overreact to racism is too extreme.”

— Andrew Van Dusen, Oneonta, disabled
