NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced yesterday that LA Clipper owner Donald Sterling is banned for life by the NBA. The penalties include a $2.5 million dollar fine and prohibits Sterling from attending any NBA games or being at any NBA facilities or events. The Board of Governors of the National Basketball Association will also vote shortly on whether or not to force Sterling to sell the Los Angeles Clippers, which he has been sole owner of since 1981. All of this stems from the public release of private phone call recordings made by V. Stiviano, who is, or was, Donald Sterling′s girlfriend, allegedly. The recordings allegedly indicate that Sterling had a racist attitude over Stiviano, a Latino-African-American herself, posting photos of herself posing with black people, such as Magic Johnson, on her social media sites.
