What you see right now when you log onto the Clippers’ home page

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver has – effective immediately – banned soon-to-be-former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers Donald Sterling from essentially every NBA activity, from making executive decisions regarding the Clippers to even attending games, for life.

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA in response to racist comments the league says he made in a recorded conversation.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Tuesday that he will try to force the controversial owner to sell his franchise. Sterling has also been fined $2.5 million, and Silver made no effort to hide his outrage over the comments.

Silver said a league investigation found that the NBA’s longest-tenured owner was in fact the person on the audiotapes that were released over the weekend.

I won’t provide my own opinions on this matter, but instead I’ll let you – the visitor – speak your piece/peace below in the comments section. How do you think this will affect the NBA? Will the Clippers be more motivated than ever throughout the playoffs, or will this be too much of a distraction/stress for them to handle? Leave your words below.
