ABC7's Sports Director Larry Biel explained how Stevens could be forced to give up his share

Beil said a few years ago the NBA forced Donald Sterling to sell the Clippers because of racist comments he made. While this is a different situation Beil says the precedent is clear.

Beil also said that with pressure coming from LeBron James, other players and coaches on this, there's going to be pressure on the NBA and the Warriors to force Stevens to sell his share of the team.
