Adam Silver has banned Donald Sterling from any business association with the NBA. According to a close source to Sterling, “He is not going to sell the team” (Probasketballtalk.com). Players and the Player Association are willing to take action if the NBA and league owners do not take action soon. League insiders have reported that Sterling actions are not shocking to some and have been known around the NBA. Sterling was known as the man everyone now knows.
Sterling is reportedly battling some form of cancer but he is still focused on keeping the franchised he has build from the ground. If Sterling sues, which he is expected to, he will likely base his case on language in the NBA constitution that deals with conduct that constitutes “willful acts” (DailyNew.com). There are several individuals that are interested in buying the Clippers from Sterling, most noted, Magic Johnson and Oprah Winfrey.
