Donald Sterling Banned For Life – Fined $2.5 Million

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life Tuesday, and Commissioner Adam Silver announced at a news conference in New York that he would urge owners to force a sale of the team.

During an internal investigation, the NBA determined that it was Sterling’s voice on the tape.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver expressed “personal outrage” over Sterling’s remarks and said “the hateful opinions” expressed by Sterling had no place in an “organization that has taken a leadership role in race relations.”

On behalf of the NBA, Silver apologized personally to some of the NBA’s greatest athletes – and specifically to Magic Johnson, who was a target of Sterling’s rants.
