Commissioner Silver Wants To See Clippers Sold

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life and also
fined $2.5 million by the NBA in response to racially charged comments the
league said he made in a recorded conversation. NBA commissioner Adam Silver
said at Tuesday's press conference that Sterling confirmed it was his voice on
the tape that surfaced this past weekend. As part of his lifetime ban,
Sterling can't attend any NBA games or practices, be present at any Clippers
facility, or participate in any business or player personnel decisions
involving the team. The discipline issued is based on Silver's conclusion that
Sterling violated league rules through his expressions of offensive and
hurtful views, the impact of which has been widely felt throughout the league.
In the recording, Sterling told his girlfriend that he is bothered by her
association with African-Americans and asks her not to bring them to
Clippers games.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
