  12. Card 12 of 14

    How big is the NBA fine compared to Sterling's net worth?

    Because Sterling's net worth is an estimated $1.9 billion — making him, according to Forbes, the 972nd richest person in the world — the $2.5 million dollar fine is tiny. It's like fining a person with a net worth of $50,000 a grand total of $65.78.

    Additionally, forcing Sterling to sell the team will lead to a financial windfall. He bought the Clippers in 1981 for $12 million, and Forbes recently valued them at $575 million — a figure that is almost certainly an underestimate, given that the Milwaukee Bucks recently sold for $550 million.
