Sterling banned for life

Donald Sterling has been banned for life in response to racist comments caught on tape. NBA commissioner Adam Silver also fined Sterling $2.5 million and said he will urge the NBA's Board of Governors to force a sale of the team. This penalty is about as hard as the league could come down on Sterling and prompted widespread approval from some of the NBA's biggest names.
