NBA – No Bigots Allowed

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver let Clippers owner Donald Sterling know that his racist behavior, attitude and remarks will not be tolerated in the NBA.  Donald Sterling has been banned for life and will not be able to attend games, practices, meetings or make any decisions regarding the team.  Sterling will also be fined $2.5 million dollars the max that the NBA can fine an owner.

The commissioner will also be going to the Board of Governors to ask the owners to vote on forcing Sterling to sell his team.  Seventy-five percent of the owners will need to vote “yes” for this to happen.

This is a historic move by the commissioner who just started in February. Way to let everyone know – racism has no place in the NBA.
