Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau weighed in on NBA commissioner Adam Silver's announcement that Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the league.

"I thought (Silver) handled it great," Thibs said. "I thought the owners did a great job, the player's association, and of course Doc Rivers along with Chris Paul. I'm just glad Doc's there running this organization. But I think they did the right thing and obviously there's no place for that type of behavior in our league and Adam was very strong, so I was very pleased with that.

"I think the way the league responded was the correct way and I think everyone's pleased with what the commissioner did."
