Lupica: Stern should tell Ratner to get out of the basketball business

From New York Daily News sports columnist Mike Lupica today:
But when does [NBA Commissioner David] Stern tell [Nets owner] Bruce Ratner that it is time for him to get out of the basketball business?

When does the commissioner tell Ratner to see if he can find a buyer who's more interested in the NBA than real estate?

Ratner is Donald Sterling of the [Los Angeles] Clippers, just taller.

Last month, ESPN The Magazine called Ratner the second-worst owner in professional sports, and the worst owner in pro basketball. Ratner was ranked #121, while Sterling was #116, though his team was overall rated worse (#122) than the Nets (#111) in the Ultimate Standings.
