The NBA came down hard on Donald Sterling and for all the right reasons. Sterling made some racsist comments to his reported girlfriend. The organization took a huge step forward in banning Sterling for life from the NBA as well as finning him $2.5 million!
“The hateful opinions voiced by that of the man [on the tape] are those of Donald Sterling,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said. “…I’m personally distraught the views expressed by Mr. Sterling came from within an institution that has historically taken such a leadership role in matters of race relations.”
The NBA will also look into forcing Sterling to sell the team. Good for the NBA!
