"[Kobe's] statement is a start, but the NBA must now take action."
"No matter the intent, slurs like this fuel intolerance. The NBA has a chance to show leadership by taking disciplinary measures and sending a message that words like this have no place in sports."
We agree. This CANNOT go unpunished!
