Clippers owner Donald Sterling Banned for Life
So... We should discuss this.
Adam Silver got some major brownie points early on in his Commish chair handing down a life time ban and a $2.5mil fine on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling over racist comments recorded.
NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA in response to racist comments the league says he made in a recorded conversation.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he will try to force the controversial owner to sell his franchise. Sterling also was fined $2.5 million, and Silver made no effort to hide his outrage over the comments. "I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners I need to remove him," Silver said.
It's about time Sterling was cleaned out of the league to be honest.
