NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver has banned Los Angeles Clippers owner, Donald Sterling for life from all NBA activities on top of a $2.5 million dollar fine and will seek to force him to sell his team.
"We stand together in condemning Mr. Sterling's views." Silver said. "They have no place in the NBA." After hearing the tape, Silver commented that he has known Sterling for many years and has suspected that the voice on the recorder was in fact, his. Most players as well as fans are very satisfied with the ruling from the most powerful man in the league.
Former NBA player and Los Angeles mayor, Kevin Johnson, stated that the scandal was "bigger than basketball." This has to deal with race and racial superiority.
Not only that, but the NBA will also seek to grant Clippers players free agency after the season is over.
Magic Johnson and his business partners have also thrown their names in the ring to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers.
This is the right thing for Silver to do for himself and the NBA as well as its fans. Racism has no place in the world today.
As the Clippers Twitter account says, "WE ARE ALL ONE!"
