Donald Sterling banned from the NBA for life

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life, per an announcement from Commissioner Adam Silver

This is not baseball-related, but it is sports-related and a pretty big deal, so I figured I'd put a post up about it...

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has announced that L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life, and fined $2.5 million, for comments he made that were recorded by his mistress.  Silver will seek to have Sterling sell the team.

You can read more from Adrian Wojnarowski here on the sanctions and the situation.

This should set up some very interesting drama, as Sterling is very litigious -- he's famously been sued over refusing to pay coaches he's fired -- and the last thing you generally want to do is get involved in litigation with someone rich, old, crazy, and who doesn't give a damn about what people think about him.

This is about to get real.
