Eye on Basketball Podcast: Donald Sterling lifetime NBA ban

Ethan Sherwood Strauss joins me on a late podcast today to discuss the punishment handed down by NBA commissioner Adam Silver against the Los Angeles Clippers' owner Donald Sterling. Sterling is banned for life, has been fined $2.5 million, and Silver will do everything within his power to urge the forced sale of the team. Will he get the vote from the owners in order to complete this punishment? How have people reacted? What do we make of all this?

The Golden State Warriors have had drama of their own. It's reported that former assistant coach was fired due to recording conversations with various members of the organization. What kind of environment is there in the Warriors' organization? Will Mark Jackson coach his last game for the team this postseason? What should happen to him and what direction should the team go in?

We discuss all of this, plus the Pacers' struggles against the Hawks, the Rockets' problems with the Blazers, and much more.
