NBA players took to Twitter to react to commissioner Adam Silver's announcement that he has imposed a lifetime ban and a $2.5 million fine on Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was caught on tape making a series of racist remarks that became public on Friday.
“Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” Silver said Tuesday at a news conference in New York. “Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facility. He may not participate in any business or player personnel decisions. … He will also be barred from attending Board of Governors meetings.”
