NBA Bans Los Angeles Clippers' Owner From NBA For Life

(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.

  • Chris

    Commissioner just clapped that boy.

    • Brindle

      yeah he did, good move. it actually exceeds what I expected

  • Brindle

    I thought they were gonna execute him next week by hanging… No execution?

    • Lol I thought it was firing squad myself…..

  • This wont hold up. The nba needed to do something to stop the sponsors and fans from fleeing. The fine is less than an average player contract & hes proven he doesnt care about paying. Plus you cant force a owner to sell. Next year around this time and everone has moved on, he’ll still be the owner. Personally until tbe black players themselves refuse to play for this man, I wont be happy and wont fully respect them. But the world will keep turning.

    • Has Been

      But the board of governors can vote him out and force the sale

      • We’ll see how that goes.

      • superh8

        Yea we will . we’re gonna start by blacks owning the clippers then 1 by 1 take over the rest of the teams or start our own league so u crackers can cry”its not fair”.we r sports.we r music.we r movies.without us ur life gonna b so bland.its a new day crackers we taking back ours.slowly but surely.

    • gerald bransol

      yes they can .. owners can rule him out… so bye bye sterling

    • Sa Go

      you don’t know what your’re talking about. the 2.5 is the max they can fine him as per the rules of the league and his ban does not allow him to be a part of anything regarding NBA period. Also he can and from what the commish is saying will get voted out the league. So instead of having the black payers screw themselves over and go against their contract (which is as dumb as protesting and going to jail, not productive) and not play, they now can play and they will have a new owner very soon….read the facts before you comment

      • First of all, you must be one of these people who thinks money buys dignity. I dont care how much the fine is, black players still get this man paid. Second, to say sitting out or going to jail is not productive shows you are as ignorant as you can possibly be because that EXACTLY what Dr. King did in non-violent protest. Before standing up for the nba, learn history before you comment because you apparently dont know about it.

      • Sa Go

        You’re one of those people who read a comment and all of a sudden know what i might find in somebody with dignity! what i’m learning about you is you are very opinionated with out reading the facts and actually taking the time to read what Silver said and what i wrote in my comment. #1 you shouldn’t care about the dollar value, but you should care that it was the MAXIMUM that was allowed. #2 if you read what i wrote i said its as dumb as the protesters who protest in a way that is illegal and go to jail, yes that worked in the 60’s but it doesnt work now…look at the occupiers of wall street…you think they accomplished anything doing that, Hell No! we’re educated now, we don’t need to protest in that way, there are better ways. #3 “learn history about the NBA” haha were did you explain anything about the history of the NBA?!?! and MOST IMPORTANT #4 Black players are getting themselves paid, this man is getting kicked out so he will not be profiting anymore, and he will never be able to profit from the NBA ever again….what more do you want? to execute him? to pin him for all the atrocities white ppl have done to blacks? i’m sorry to say, this is the NBA and not the supreme court and he didn’t kill anyone, he was handed the harshest punishment possible by the NBA and for that i commend the NBA and so should you cause they easily could have done a lot less…..now go read a book, i have more education on this subject and many others in my pinky then you do in your whole body….how old are you? you seem young…there’s is nothing worse then a “smart” dumb black person. Someone who seems like they can make a valid point but then you come to realize all they did was read the headline and actual didn’t read the ENTIRE article or facts…pay attention to the details.

      • Youre a funny dude. Apparently your little feelings are hurt, lame attempts to insult me show this. You just keep proving how ignorant you are by underestimating my education which you have no idea about. Just keep supporting the NBA…its faaaaantastic.

      • Sa Go

        haha so now you know how someone’s feeling by reading comments…if you’re not a psychic you’re in the wrong line of work. i’m not insulting you, i’m actually saying go read a book, it will teach you to read not just the cover of the book but the WHOLE thing…this is called education lol. I have a pretty good understanding of your education level by the way you comment, and the fact that you have NO facts and just comments, you keep talking about he NBA as a whole..NOBODY is talking about that, they’re talking about this specific decision, and it was a GREAT decision, the harshest decision silver could have gave…as for the other areas of the NBA that is another topic. Ah but i see you don’t know how to isolate topics, you just see it as the big bad NBA haha you really need to go look up the definition of ignorant and see if that applies to you or me….try to read more than one word this time haha

  • wayne jackson

    Blacks are just used as entertainment for whites, face it coz i’ve alrealy blacks are the most ignorant self hating race. our black women rather wear another races hair than their own factz .The black man is NOT RESPECTED by the world the black man is just physically blessed the black man is a sellout to his own race FACTS

    • What about our successes and strong points as a culture? Only identifying the negatives is what makes us self hating & disrespectful.

      • wayne jackson

        no the fact is dat my ppl is lost
        we let white man run the show
        how can we let a race that hate us ……

      • IceBergSlim

        No..The Whiteman runs your show…That’s how you feel about yourself.

      • wayne jackson

        tell me wat culture

      • Sean Taylor

        Sagging pants to show off your azz while yelling “what up my nigga”.

      • wayne jackson

        ok

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        we got that style from the krakkka, so whats your point

      • I see plenty crakkkaz down here in FLA sagging too, what you gotta say bout that. Wigga capital of the world to me….I remember back in the day white folks wouldn’t even listen to rap music lol…now they love it more than any other genre lol…in the words of the late great nasir…you been on my dick nigga u love my style….

      • Brindle

        both our culture and American culture.

    • IceBergSlim

      Please my man think before you post comments like this..degrading an ignorant

    • scullyson

      Somebody appears upset today. lol

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      i got a question
      if your a black man…………..then why are you a sell out?
      if your a black women………………why you wearing other races hair?

  • I am satisfied, but the banned for life part lol his life is almost over anyway.

    • wayne jackson

      Am never satisfied

  • Faceda59

    No he’s out of there.The nba can’t afford to let this go,think of the money they lost in the last couple days.He’s not the only owner that feels this way.He’s the only one that has got caught up in sum bs.That team that the clippers have built is one or two peices away from a championship.Its good that his true nature came out before they got one.Those guys don’t want to coach,play,do anything for this man ever.It would really suck if you are out there playing your but of then have to look at this jackazz on the sideline that doesn’t respect you as a man.

  • EniggaMA

    A candy ass smacketh was laid down. I don’t agree with it but Fiduck him

  • RichFromBX

    Dude is a piece of garbage, no doubt, but could you imagine if you walked in to work one day and was fired because of something you said at home or in the park…

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      happens all the time when you say something anti gay or anti “semetic” (jews are not semites but thats a whole nother topic). my question is why are black people acting so damn passive. i hear more black people trying to defend this guy (ex look how WE treat each other argument) then the other side.

      • Salt

        Jews are semites, genetically. Why do you keep making passive aggressive posts about Jews?

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        because i know history

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        history is not to be confused with fact.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        then you should know that these europeans arent jews, they are europeans who coverted to judism, they are jew’ish.

        unless your telling me that you believe they some “choosing” people like the bable say, lol

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        there are opposing theories on this, both backed by research and evidence, both biased.
        I’d wager you may well have placed faith in one of the theories without equal consideration to both or academic research to any…

        personally, unless I was there I’ve got no reason to trust either side…..
        To quote Mel Gibson “have you got a dog in this fight?”

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        who is the oldest race of people on the planet?
        sure aint no europeans so i use that as one gage.

        the fact that the Ethiopians (which i know is a greek word) are called Afro-semetic (not all, just the ones on the topic) but these fake jews is called semetic………..not euro-semeticm, u know, let me know that someone is playing games. its like calling white people in Africa Africans or in South Africa case Afrikaans but call black people on the continent black Africans or black Africa shows me someone is trying to play games. so thats one of the reasons why i sway more to this side then the other side.

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        respect to your balance.
        i’m not gonna argue cause any info I have on the matter is merely from a book that I didn’t write and thus I don’t know is true.

        On the subject of ‘oldest race’, from what I’ve read that argument is somewhat redundant though due to a couple of theories (note I’m not sayin ‘facts’ even though they’re supported by ‘evidence’) –

        1, Neanderthals arrived independently and prior to modern humans (AKA black cro-magnon) and interbred with us before dying out and there’s still Neanderthal DNA in white people, so even though there’s no pure Neanderthal anymore, they seem to precede us.
        2, modern humans are merely an evolutionary link in a chain of hundreds of other primate variations all of which came before us and contributed to who we are today, so to claim we are first is like saying “I’m the first person who is me”.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i hear what you saying, and this will be short lol
        but remember, drapeomania (i might have misspelled this word) is a “disease” that enslaved africans got when they wanted to be free. that came from science books, from ironically a jew’ish doctor. when a people is trying to find they self in history they start skewing evidence to fit they find. some scientist say black people are black because they was on the equator and whites are white cause they was in the cold but the eskimo is darker skinned cause he eat fish. see what im saying……if that notion was correct then it should fit ALL examples. if i say the black race is the oldest race on the planet, then when your diggin up old artifacts etc etc and they coming up white or chinese then i have to change my view point if im honestly looking for the truth. the more they dig, the more they find the darker the people, the more “negroid” the face. so until something counters that then i have to stand on that side. i mean check this…………….u never wondered as a kid how can time go backwards in BC then forward in AD? that makes no sense…………our reality is being played with

      • Salt

        Googled drapeomania, it was bullshit made up by Samuel Cartwright, who wasn’t Jewish.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        That bullshit he made up was not considered bullshit for a long time

      • Salt

        “u never wondered as a kid how can time go backwards in BC then forward in AD? that makes no sense…………our reality is being played with”

        …are you for real?

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        Yes…..how the hell do time go backwards for BC then forward AD

    • EniggaMA

      People won’t understand until it happens to them

  • Elayorx El

    Well, considering the very system we take part in everyday, has been designed to keep those of inferior stock on top, I find little solace in knowing one screw will be removed from, ONE, of the pillars of this ginormous edifice we call, life. The structure will still be strong, firm, and seemingly infallible, and soon everyone will go back to starring in their programmed roles, with blindfolds, veneers, and denials also strong, firmly in place, and seemingly infallible. Sometimes I’m really ashamed of that which I’m supposed to be from, and with. “This can’t be life, there’s gotta be more, this can’t be us!”

  • scullyson

    He wont be missed thats for sure.

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    i have a question.

    what do you think the punishment would be if his comments was anti gay and or anti isreali’s aka the jew’ish people

    • Opposite Of Everyone

      i dunno, what do you think it would be?

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        he would get the mel gibson treatment

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        eh? Mel GIbsons still acting, got a film coning out!
        Stirling’s never gonna work again…
        u talmbout son?

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        and sterling is a 88 year old billionaire,,,,,,,,,,,”he’s never gonna work again”……..ok

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        What I’m saying is, in what way did Gibson get worse justice? He’s still functioning quite happily in a Jewish-owned industry even though he made equally strong anti-Jewish remarks..

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i get that. but all sterling got was paid leave of absence. but i get what you saying. my real issue is the passive black people that act like we shouldnt trip over this. what is that my issue? cause i saw hebrew get edited out of all bout the benji’s and kanye get back lash for saying we dont have to same pull the jew’ish people have. and lets not get into having an opposite opinion about homosexuality…………not hate, not violence towards………just an opposite opinion garner backlash. but diss a black person, kill a black person etc etc it seem like sheet gotta be intellectualized and we must review all the this and thats to make sure in fact it was racist, and its starting to get old.

        as for mel gibson real quick, he got black balled and had to do his share of kissing jew’ish people butt, but what happen to him lasted for years, right or wrong?
        this case here……….seem like “they” wanna make it swift, and dead the story so we can move forward. like ok naga’s he said it, we banned him now get over it. and i dont like that

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        I’m feelin you on that, but it’s a little early to know if it’s just gonna be deaded…

        Potentially, there could be bigger ramifications.

        What’s your opinion on the view that black people are more heated/vocal about this than for instance the situation in Chiraq?

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        What’s your opinion on the view that black people are more heated/vocal about this than for instance the situation in Chiraq?

        ————

        to me thats called distractions. picture police beating YOU down, YOU want justice and the “view” is “why do we get upset when a cop beat opposite of you but is silent on the countless beatings that go down in the hood by the hands of us?”

        so YOU (opposite of you) shouldnt get justice cause of crime in mississippi? thats a weird view to me. or what if black people said that when the 2 black boys killed that white chicks baby? what if we said “why are white people upset about these 2 black guys killing the white baby when white people kill they kid and no one in the white community gets mad. that logic makes no sense…….

        but let me go back to Chiraq. whats going on out there is genocide, plain and simple. but there ARE people speaking out about whats happening in Chicago and doing something, just cause we dont know dont mean it aint happening, u know.

        but the real question is WHY. why are these KIDS committing suicide. when you hate yourself, you hate anything or one that look like you and thats why killings is so normal among black people. its hate, and you cant march on hate. you cant protest hate. i was telling my girl that people make it like its zombies or aliens killing in them chitown streets……….nah, these are SOMEBODY CHILDREN! so lets start there, you know. and i dont want this to be to long, but i blame the women personally on the violence in the hood and i can go deeper on that, but i dont want this to be a essay lol

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        women are to blame for the violence?

        break it down pls.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        so, im 33.
        when i was 14 this chick told me how men is to blame for the ills in the hood. this is roughly 93-94
        i didnt grow up with a father like most men in my age range in that community. so i was on the blame the man band wagon cause again my father wasnt there.

        then i started to think………….if the man IS NOT in the picture, and he did NOT raise the child and was NOT in that childs life then how is HE to blame? when a boy is raised with no father and become something………..its cause of his mother, right? if this same boy is raised with no father and become NOTHING its cause of the mother? nope, its the absence of the father. i think thats weird.

        is there good women that raise they child………..yup
        is there good men that raise they child…………yup

        but i dont subscribe to the notion that a women cant raise a boy into a man. that is soooooooooooooo afr from the truth and makes 1000% no sense, and here is why.

        can a women TEACH a boy how to be a man or the rules of being a man? absolutely not. impossible.
        can a man TEACH a girl how to be a woman or the rules of being a women? absolutely not.

        can a women RAISE her boy up to respect women and how to treat women as he become a man? YES!
        can a man RAISE his daughter to respect herself and right minded men? yes

        men are warriors and have a high percentage to be killed, so the notion of a mother raising her child alone is not “new”. and im not saying whats “easy” or there is something wrong with a 2 parent house hold. but i dont think the excuse of her NOT being able to raise this boy is what makes mothers be more hands off with these boys. i feel like as a man if i have a daughter i would be a fool to say i cant raise a girl to be a women and thats why she is a whore cause her moms wasnt there. that makes no sense.

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        an interesting perspective…
        but, to quote the African proverb; “it takes a village to raise the child”.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        It does, it absolutely does. Which is why I found it funny that bob dole made a point to say it doesn’t take a village to raise a child back in the day.

    • superh8

      He is a KIKE (JEW EWWW)

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i thought so……….
        but his racist views is what built basketball in my opinion. and what i mean by that is this……….check out the history on the harlem globetrotters……….they little jew’ish manager shared the same thoughts about his players

      • superh8

        Wow.didnt know that.thanx

  • $36424596

    So when an athlete is arrested for DUI/Assault/Sexual Assault/Drugs it’s okay. Everyone rallies behind them. (VICK AINT DO IT KOBE AINT DO IT) Yet someone states their opinion, expresses a view and blacks get all fickle and up in arms? You guys are pathetic.

    • brotha_man

      guess i’m pathetic

      • superh8

        Nice.we need 2 start really lynching these crackers.lmfao

    • The Arsonist

      You’re an idiot homie point blank if you’re really thinking about defending Donald Sterling on a hip hop website you should shoot yourself.

    • Chris

      Don’t put this on Black people. Sterling f*cked up. Period. He sh*tted on his players. He sh*tted on his Black and Mexican fans. Plus, he’s Jewish. He should know better. SMH.

    • scullyson

      Get lost buddy

  • brotha_man

    brotha man approves

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      thats not true. if we just “take it” and stand up like a proud race then what we gonna do with all them pick it signs and new marching songs. we have to stay meek and humble………the good book teaches us that, and wait for a savior. what kind of man is gonna stand up and take his freedom, justice and equality? a dead man……..cut it out bruh…….

      and for those that cant see it…………im being EXTREMELY sarcastic

  • SleepyTheGreat

    He Still Won….

    • scullyson

      Won what ?

      • Ryan Cole

        He still gets paid off of the Clippers because he hasn’t been voted out yet. He has to get voted out by 75% of the owners, and even if they do vote, they can’t tell him how much to sell for. His wife is the team’s co-owner and his son-in-law is a team official.

        So to sum it up, he still collects revenue without having to do work, and his family picks up the slack. Can’t ban him from talking to family. The ban is a small victory, but it should’ve been done years ago. Sterling has a history of extreme racial views and mistreatment of minorities.

      • SleepyTheGreat

        You said everything I wanted to say and more!!

    • Black Adam

      Nah he lost. What good is it to have all that money when everywhere you go ppl know you as that old out of touch Racist and want nothing to do with you.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        um…………you do know that zimmerman still walks around this nation on touched. you do know how much money amerikkka donated to him. the ONLY person i ever saw (off the top of my head) that got that much hate after the fact was vick most recent but OJ.

      • Black Adam

        Money isnt everything and Souls burn slow Knight. We dont have to off him to make him feel the flames. Word to Mobb Deep.

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    What he said was wrong but hey the nicca never once said the words “ni99er or ni99a” in the tapes. Again I aint defending him. I actually feel sorry for the way his beliefs at such an experienced age, yet he is still ignorant. Lets also keep in mind this was a private conversation that his side chi(k played him on…… LOL he takes te L’s bad but he still paid though!……………………………………………………..

The nba just has to ensure that this happens or all the other sht will be irrelevant. Yall notice how ol good ol boy sterling admitted it was him on the tape but that crakkka still ain’t been apologetic. Fk him and I hope he dies from cancer of the azz. Fk em fk em fk em
