Now that Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life, some tweeters can’t help but wonder: Who’s next? Could anyone in the NBA who holds views deemed offensive — such as favoring traditional marriage — face similar consequences?

Players caught making anti-gay remarks have been fined, but not banned. Could that change down the road?
