The NBA’s findings in the Donald Sterling investigation will be revealed by league Commissioner Adam Silver at 2 o’clock this afternoon. Sterling is the 30 year owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. A recording of racist comments attributed to Sterling while talking to his girlfriend has gone viral. On the recording, the man and woman argue about photos posted to Instagram in which she appears with African Americans.
The man on the recording says he doesn’t want the woman bringing any black people to games with her. Sterling has not commented publicly on the scandal. Team President Andy Roeser issued a statement on the weekend that said “what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect Sterling’s view, beliefs or feelings.” He suggested the recording was an attempt by the girlfriend to “get even” with Sterling. Experts say Sterling could face a lifetime suspension from the league and at least a million dollar fine.
