Los Angeles Clippers Donald Sterling Banned For Life; Asks NBA Owners To Remove Him As Owner [Video]

It looks like the Donald Sterling era as Los Angeles Clippers owner is coming to an end.

In result of the audio tape that leaked out on Saturday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver has banned him for life, and gave him a maximum $2.5 million fine. The punishment is only to Donald and not to members of the family who are currently employed there.

He has also asked the owners of the NBA to remove him from his position. They need 3/4 vote to get him out of office.

“As for Mr. Sterling’s ownership interest in the Clippers. I will urge the board of governors to force a sale of the team and will do everything in my power to ensure that happens.”

This could open the doors for Magic Johnson to buy the team once it has revoked ownership to Sterling.
