UPDATED: Clippers Owner Banned For Life By The NBA

Updated: Tuesday, April 29 2014, 01:56 PM CDT

UPDATE: Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA in response to racist comments the league says he made in an audio recording.

----------------------------------------

ORIGINAL STORY:

Adam Silver, the commissioner of the National Basketball Association, is holding a news conference this afternoon regarding the investigation involving Clippers owner Donald Sterling and those racially charged comments attributed to him. The players' union has asked Silver to rule quickly, preferably before the Clippers play host to Golden State in the fifth game of their playoff series this evening. Last weekend, Silver said he has broad authority to address issues with owners that threaten the game's best interests.

The league's bylaws allow for Silver to levy a penalty of up to $1 million without needing the approval of other owners if he deems Sterling's actions have damaged the league as a whole.

Silver is getting pressure from all sides, including the NAACP which has asked for a meeting with him.

The controversy is now hitting the Clippers where it hurts, in the wallet, as several companies have pulled their advertising.

In support of the Clippers' players the Miami Heat showed theirs last night before their playoff game with Charlotte. Like the Clippers did on Sunday, the Heat ran out of the tunnel wearing their warmups, huddled at center court and tossed their white shooting T-shirts to the ground. They then went through the pregame warmup with their red Heat warmup jerseys inside out, hiding the team's logo.
