(AllHipHop News) After five days of analysis, boycotts and recorded conversations, the NBA has leveled a punishment on Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling over his racist comments.

Today (April 29th), Adam Silver announced in the press conference that Sterling would be banned from the NBA for life. According to Silver, Sterling admitted that it was him on the recording but did not inform him that he was remorseful for the comments:

Central finding of the investigation is that the man whose voice is heard and on the second recording from the same conversation, released on sunday, are Mr. Sterling. And the hateful opinions of those express are those of Mr. Sterling.

Silver states that he and many other coaches he has spoken to, will support the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.  Effective immediately, Sterling can not attend Clippers games, practicies or facilities. Also, Sterling is banned from Board of Govenor meetings and all league activities.

Sterling will also be fined $2.5 million, the maximum amount allowed.
