Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Banned for Life

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life from the NBA.
Los Angeles -- Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling will be banned for life and fined $2.5 million for racist cmoments, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced Tuesday.

The move comes after days of outrage at ugly words attributed to Sterling from a taped conversation with an ex-girlfriend.

The comments, where the owner seemed to say he didn't want his much-younger girlfriend hanging out with Black people on Instagram or bringing them to games, were first by TMZ and then in another recording posted on the website Deadspin.
