A news conference by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on the Donald Sterling controversy is underway. Punishments for the Clippers owner include a lifetime ban and a $2.5-million fine. Silver also said he would urge NBA owners and the board of governors to force Sterling to sell the team. “I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” said Silver. Most were expecting a large fine and suspension to be handed to Sterling after he allegedly made controversial remarks about blacks that created widespread outrage/Los Angeles Times. More here.
