NBA Bans Sterling for Life


donald-sterlingNBA Commissioner Adam Silver has banned Clipper’s owner Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for racist remarks he made in a leaked phone message.

Silver said the NBA interviewed Sterling and found the voice belonged to him. “The views expressed are deeply offensive and harmful, that they came from an NBA owner only heightens the damage and my anger,” Silver said. “Effective immediately I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization and the NBA.” Read more at Yahoo!

  1. And the deeply offensive and racist remarks by John Kerry won’t even merit a slap on the wrist!

    Although John Kerry mildly “apologized” for his apartheid remark, there was no “static” emanating from the Obama Administration prior to the “apology”.

    Interesting how both the Sterling and Kerry remarks were both revealed through third party sources.

  2. “Banned for life” is a very vague statement. What does that mean? This is not a playground fight. There are laws involved. Mr. Sterling has the top lawyers around. Silver is a classic fraud just trying to cover his own back. In this PC generation, its no wonder that “emotion” becomes the law of the land. Thanx to Obama.

  3. He bought the Clippers for 13 million. They are now worth 750million. May you waste money like this, is my personal bracha to you

  4. Since Jewish supporters & box ticket owners cancelled on the CLIPPERS, the heat was on. There is no trail of money flowing in the Kerry direction.

  5. If he is banned, does that mean the Clippers can’t play tonight?
    Seriously, he owns the team. So what does the Commissioner expect him to do, make it hefker immediately? Until he sells it, it could take years and he can play games with any sale to make it not work.
    You can’t resign as owner….

  6. ah all of u u think basketball is bad good for u (witch some people do) dont go blame others who think its right

  7. Too bad no one is that hysterical when Kerry calls Israel an apartheid state or when there was killings of Jews in Israel and other parts of the world by anti-Semitic people, etc. and asks for these people to be removed from their posts and not have agreements with those countries, would that be nice.

  8. just to make things clear being banned from the league does NOT mean u cant own the team !!! rather u can not appear by any meetings or games !!!
