Reactions to the NBA's lifetime ban of Donald Sterling
The NBA reacts to Adam Silver announcing Donald Sterling's lifetime ban.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced on Tuesday the league has banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life, while also fining him the maximum penalty of $2.5 million.
Immediately following the announcement, the league reacted to Silver's press conference, expressing pretty much universal appreciation.
