I'M BANNING MR. STERLING FOR LIFE
FROM ANY ASSOCIATION WITH
THE CLIPPERS ORGANIZATION, OR
THE NBA. I'M ALSO FINING MR. STERLING
$2.5 MILLION DOLLARS. THE MAXIMUM
AMOUNT ALLOWED UNDER
THE NBA CONSTITUTION.
THIS IS A SWIFT, UNPRECEDENTED
PUNISHMENT FROM THE NBA, AND ONE
THAT WE CAN ALL AGREE WILL EFFECT
DONALD STERLING VERY,
VERY LITTLE. AND IF WE'RE ABLE
TO FORCE HIM TO SELL THE TEAM,
THAT WILL JUST MAKE HIM EVEN RICHER.
WE LOOKED INTO IT, AND
IT TURNS OUT THAT THERE'S VERY
LITTLE YOU CAN DO TO PUNISH AN
OLD, RICH WHITE MAN. REALLY,
ALL WE CAN DO IS TAKE SOLICE IN
THE FACT THAT HE IS VERY OLD
AND HE IS LIKELY TO DIE VERY SOON.
ISN'T THAT A NICE THOUGHT? NO?
WELL IT'S ALL WE GOT REALLY.
HOPEFULLY WHEN HE DIES, JUST A
LITTLE BIT OF RACISM WILL DIE
WITH HIM, AND MAYBE AS MORE AND
MORE OLD RACIST DIE, RACISM WILL
DIE WITH THEM TOO...
PROBABLY NOT.
WE STAND TOGETHER CONDEMNING MR.
STERLING'S VIEWS. THEY HAVE NO
PLACE IN THE NBA...
PUBLICLY.
LETS BE HONEST HERE. DONALD STERLING
HAS BEEN OPEN UNAPOLOGETIC
RACIST FOR DECADES NOW, AND
WE'RE ONLY GETTING RID OF HIM NOW
BECAUSE THERE'S PUBLIC OUTCRY.
SO THAT IN MIND, I HAVE A MESSAGE
FOR ALL THE OTHER OWNERS
IN THE NBA:
KEEP YOUR FUCKING MOUTHS SHUT.
I KNOW THAT ALL OF YOU FROM
MILLIONAIRES TO RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS
HAVE SOME UNDOUBTEDLY, VILE
OPINIONS. YOU KNOW WHY EVERYONE
HATES CHICK-FIL-A SO MUCH?
IT'S BECAUSE THE OWNERS COULDN'T
STOP RUNNING THEIR MOUTHS. THINK
THE BIBLE THUMPERS OVER AT
IN-AND-OUT DON'T HAVE SOME
DISGUSTING OPINIONS?
WE DON'T KNOW, BECAUSE THEY
KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT AND SELL
HAMBURGERS.
BE IN-AND-OUT BURGER, NBA OWNERS.
THANK YOU. AND I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.
HOWIE BUSH. SPORTSCRUNCH.BIZ.
UH, WHICH CELEBRITY RESPONSE
MOST IMPACTED YOUR DECISION TODAY?
FRANKY MUNEZ.
