The reaction to LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling‘s lifetime ban from the NBA was swift. NAB Commissioner Adam Silver, left, made the announcement earlier today during a live press conference.
In audio obtained by gossip tabloid TMZ.com, Sterling told his biracial girlfriend, Vanessa Stiviano, not to bring black men to his games — including NBA legend Magic Johnson, with whom Stiviano had posed for an Instagram photo.
NBA stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and former great Magic Johnson posted their sentiments on their official Twitter accounts in the moments after the announcement.
LeBron thanked Silver for “protecting our beautiful and powerful league.”
And Johnson tweeted, “Commissioner Silver showed great leadership in banning LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life.”
SOme NBA players say they are not completely satisfied with the league’s decision. They want the NBA board of governors to hold “an immediate vote” forcing Sterling to sell the Clippers team.
But a friend who spoke with Sterling today said he did not express a desire to sell the team at this time.

That works out to a little over $41,000 (not counting taxes) for each watch.
