NBA Bans Donald Sterling For Life, Fines Him $2.5 Million

It looks as if though Clippers owner, Donald Sterling, will be paying for the comments he made regarding minorities. NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, made the announcement moments ago that the NBA will be suspending Donald Sterling indefinitely and fined him $2.5M. Talk about putting his money where his mouth is. 

UPDATE: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has banned Donald Sterling for life and is also advising the owners to force Sterling to sell.

Sterling's comments have already cost the Clippers organization nearly 10 of their sponsors yesterday. I saw this coming a mile  away.

JEEZ...and they're saying now that HE KNEW he was being taped. Something about wanting to be taped because he couldn't remember what he says sometimes? LMAO anyways, well i guess he doesn't have to worry about seeing Black people at 'HIS" games anymore

Hahaha...wow banned for life. Now he doesn't have to worry about who attends the games.

I'm glad his punishment was swift. But I hope people realize that they didn't come to this conclusion based solely off those tapes. Dude has a very lonnnnggggg history of this type of stuff but this tape was the last straw.

Ditto @ Ginger. His history makes me wonder why he was scheduled to be honored by the NAACP before all of this happened. I know the NBA commissioner did the best he could do as far as punishment but this man is worth 1.9 billion. 2.5 million dollars is like chump change to him. Even if the majority of owners vote to make him sell the Clippers, he will still make a huge profit. He bought the clippers for 12 mil in the 80s and now the team is worth over 400 mil smh.

The NAACP had received several grants from his foundation and he had been honored previously by the NAACP.

Screw the NAACP they need an overhaul....any organization that is supposedly fur "US" that refers to us as "colored people".... Let me not even go there... They will shuck and jive for a dollar.

@TawnBaby I said the same thing!  There's going to be a huge power switch and  dismantling of the team from every corner coming real soon...
