Sterling banned for life!

NEW YORK (AP) -- Issuing about the strongest rebuke that he could, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life Tuesday for making racist comments in a recorded conversation, the first step toward forcing a sale of the club and permanently removing Sterling from the league.

Silver said when he first heard the audio, he hoped it had been altered or was fake -- but also said that from his 20-year relationship with Sterling, he suspected the voice was his.    "This has been a painful moment," Silver said, "for all members of the NBA family."


Listen to ESPN Hosts take on the racism issue.
