Donald Sterling Banned From NBA For Life, Refuses To Sell L.A Clippers!

NBA Commissioner Adam silver made the announcement Tuesday – Other NBA owners agreed and Sterling agrees he made those comments!

L.A Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been booted out of the NBA for life! The NBA commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement yesterday April 29 saying the NBA will also fine the sports owner of $2.5 million.

"Personally outraged" by Sterling's racist comments, Silver insisted that "I will do everything in my power to force sterling to sell the Clippers." Note that he has the full support of the NBA owners who believe Sterling racial stings were deeper than anyone could ever imagine.

"I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners to remove him," Silver said. He added that he spoke to several players, coaches and owners before deciding on the lifetime ban.

As for the ban, Sterling will not be allowed to attend any NBA games or practices ever again ... and will not be permitted inside any team facilities.  The $2.5 million fine will be donated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts, according to TMZ reports. The ban is expected to be relevant only to Donald and not to his family members. However, latest reports from Los Angeles say, shockingly, Donald Sterling has REFUSED to sell his team. Sterling told Fox News' Jim Gray the team was NOT for sale. Gray said on Fox News he spoke with Sterling just before NBA Comm. Adam Silver banned Sterling for life.Silver said in his news conference ... if 3/4 of the NBA owners get on board they can force Sterling to sell the team.  If that happens it looks like Sterling may well go to legal war.And from all indication it's likely things may come to that.
