Just a few minutes ago NBA commissioner Adam Silver addressed the media. He came to the podium for a press conference following Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s recorded conversation. Silver confirmed that the voice of the hateful comments was indeed Donald Sterling. He expressed how hurt and disappointed he was from the recording of Sterling and that this is just down right wrong. He then went onto the punishment, banning Sterling from the Clippers organization for life and fining him $2.5 M, the maximum under the NBA constitution. Silver also said that Sterling admitted that the voice on the phone call was him. Clearly Silver is making a statement that nothing like this will ever be tolerated in the NBA while he’s here.
Tweets are flying through social media many former and current professional players, praising Commissioner Silver for not only the punishment and fine but his thoughts and comments on the situation. This is a huge boost in trust and morale between the league and Adam Silver and is an excellent start to his career as NBA commissioner.
