LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Banned From The NBA
KAPPIT
NBA commissioner Adam Silver has imposed a lifetime ban and a maximum $2.5 million fine on Clippers owner Donald Sterling for making racist comments in a taped conversation. 

After promising Saturday to grant due process to Sterling and to investigate the authenticity of the audio, Silver announced the punishment at a news conference in New York on Tuesday. 

"Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA," Silver said. "Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facility. He may not participate in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team. He will also be barred from attending NBA Board of Governors meetings or participating in any other league activity." 

Silver also pledged to take steps to force Sterling to sell the Clippers, a move that would require approval of three-quarters of the leagues owners. 

"I will urge the Board of Governors to exercise its authority to force the sale of the team," Silver said. "I will do everything in my power to ensure that that happens. I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners."
