In 2000, the Minnesota Timberwolves owner agreed to a season-long suspension by the NBA for his role in a secret deal with former player Joe Smith that violated salary cap rules. Smith had signed a free-agent contract with Minnesota in 1999, along with a secret promise of $86 million over seven years. Taylor has certainly bounced back, though. He's now chairman of the NBA's board of governors, which will vote on whether to force Sterling to sell the team.

Curious as to why Larry Miller's choking of a Denver Nuggets fan during the 1994 playoffs didn't make the list. Was it because it was only a suspension of a couple of games?
