Donald Sterling Receives Lifetime Ban From The NBA


NBA Commissioner Adam Silver brought the hammer down on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Silver announced that Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA. Meaning he can’t be in any NBA arenas or team facilities, participate with the NBA board of Governors or anything affiliated with the team or league. He’s been fined $2.5 million – the max allowed by the NBA bylaws – he will also urge the other NBA owners to exercise their power and vote for him to be forced to sell the team.

In order for that to happen, you’ll need 3/4’s of the owners to vote for this. Its hard to imagine that any owner of a team would risk the backlash and go against this. below are a series of tweets I shared with my thoughts on this topic.
