DONALD T. STERLING BANNED FOR LIFE
By Sentinel Staff Report
Published April 29, 2014

 

Just three months into his new post as National Basketball Association Commissioner, Adam Sliver, delivered the most provocative state against racial discrimination in the history of professional sports on Tuesday April 29.

 

After authenticating audio tapes of racial remarks against Blacks as being that of Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling, Silver banned the owner for life and fined him the maximum of $2.5 million, thus ending his reign with the organization after 33 years.

 

Additionally, Silver said that he would meet with the NBA Board of Governors to force Sterling to sell the team.
