“This league is far bigger than any one owner, any one coach and any one player,” Silver said. “We stand together in condemning Mr. Sterling’s views,” Silver said. “They simply have no place in the NBA.” Sterling acknowledged he was the man on the tape, Silver said. Sterling is immediately barred from attending any NBA games or practices, be present at any Clippers office or facility, or participate in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team. He also cannot participate in any league business going forward.
