NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has banned the Los Angeles Clippers owner for life and could make him sell the team. But for years it was known in certain NBA circles that Donald Sterling was a “bad guy” and an inept owner.

In stark comparison to the Los Angeles Lakers’ history of superstars, championships and a penchant for attracting A-list celebrities to home games, Sterling has always been considered a fl-by-night operator.

He consistently hired and fired personnel in a manner which made the Los Angeles Clippers the laughing stock of the league.

The league’s decision came just a few days after audio surfaced of Sterling allegedly telling his girlfriend not to associate with black people and not bring them to games. However, the NBA was aware of accusations of racist behavior years earlier. Some say that it took this long to rid the league of this man is a travesty.

What do you think? Did the NBA make the right call?
