Damn… I wonder if this has Donald Sterling wishing he would’ve shut his potty, racist azz mouth! He let his words and arrogance get him into loads of trouble. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced today that Sterling in now BANNED from the NBA and he has to pay his fare… to the tune of 2.5 million buck-a-roos!
The move comes after days of outrage at ugly words attributed to Sterling from a taped conversation with an ex-girlfriend. The comments, where the owner seemed to say he didn’t want his much-younger girlfriend hanging out with Black people on Instagram or bringing them to games, were first by TMZ and then in another recording posted on the website Deadspin.
At a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, Commissioner Silver said an investigation had confirmed that the voice on the tapes and the “hateful opinions voiced” were those of Sterling.
“Shortly after the release of an audio recording his past Saturday morning, of a conversation that allegedly included Clipper owner Donald Sterling, the NBA commenced an investigation, which among other things including an interview of Mr. Sterling.”
“That investigation is now complete,” he said.
