Donald Sterling Banned for Life from NBA

The NBA took action today after the surfacing of audio tapes that contain racist statements by LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The NBA just announced to ban Donald Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers or the NBA.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has also fined Donald Sterling $2.5 million, the maximum amount allowed under the NBA Constitution. The fine money will be donated to organizations dedicated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts that will be jointly selected by the NBA and the Players Association.

As part of the lifetime ban, Donald Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices, be present at any Los Angeles Clippers office or facility, or participate in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team. Mr. Sterling will also be barred from attending NBA Board of Governors meetings and participating in any other league activity.

Commissioner Silver also announced that he will urge the Board of Governors to exercise its authority to force a sale of the team.

Under these circumstances it does not make sense for Donald Sterling to own a NBA team. I guess the next move is the sale of the Clippers.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
