Clippers Controversy, Donald Sterling Out
Cedar Rapids, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) The message from the NBA commissioner was loud and clear: Donald Sterling is out.
Yesterday, the NBA handed out a lifetime ban for the Clippers owner and a multi-million dollar fine.
The league's investigation found that the owner did make racist remarks in a recorded conversation with his girlfriend, saying he didnt want her bringing black people to his games.
This ban means that he will no longer be able to go to games or practice and take part in any business or player decisions.
The NBA commissioner is urging the league's board of governors to force sterling to sell the team entirely.
NBA leaders and players are applauding the ruling.
The Clippers ended up winning last night's game 113 to 103.
