New Commissioner Adam Silver completed his 1st big test as the NBA commish when he suspended Clippers Owner Donald Sterling for LIFE from the Clippers organization and NBA activities. He was also fined the max, $2.5 M for his rude and inappropriate remarks. He also is forced to sell the team. Sterling has been owning the Clippers since 1981 and has been through many bad seasons with the Clippers being the team to laugh at of the league. He has also been named as a bad owner. The Clippers and fans may have not gone to Game 6 played last night if Sterling wasn’t gone from the NBA.  Despite Sterling gone, Clippers supporting companies are pausing their relationship for a while. Great decision by Silver, how do I know? The world and NBA is very happy now…
