NBA bans Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life following racist remarks

On the job for just three months and under pressure from a chorus of critics that included President Barack Obama, NBA commissioner Adam Silver issued the strongest reprimand possible under league guidelines. He also fined Sterling $2.5 million. The commissioner said he will work with the league’s Board of Governors to force Sterling, 80, to sell the Clippers, and Sterling will not be allowed to so much as attend an NBA game again.
