According to the NBA’s official statement, Sterling violated the NBA’s constitution by engaging in “conduct that has damaged and continues to damage the NBA and its teams.” While NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced the NBA’s interest in pursuing legal action against Donald Sterling prior to Sterling’s interview with Anderson Cooper 360 last Sunday (May 11th), the NBA’s statement intimates that the interview will be included:

Mr. Sterling disparaged African-Americans and “minorities”; directed a female acquaintance not to associate publicly with African-Americans or to bring African-Americans to Clippers games; and criticized African-Americans for not supporting their communities.

The NBA Finals are set to start on June 5th. Check out the NBA’s full statement here.
