Breaking: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver suspends Donald Sterling for life, imposes $2.5 million fine
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has decided to suspended Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life for racist comments heard during a conversation with his then-girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano.
Sterling will also be forced to pay a $2.5 million fine.
The decision comes after days of public outrage directed at Sterling after an audio recording surfaced over the weekend that allegedly contained his voice saying racist comments to his then-girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano.
The tape recorded a man’s voice, which the NBA said is Sterling, telling Stiviano not to post pictures of herself with black men to Instagram or bring black men to Clippers games. One of the men mentioned is Hall of Famer Magic Johnson.
Sterling has owned the Clippers since 1981.
Has justice been served?
