The Los Angeles Clippers are still owned by Donald Sterling. The 81-year-old racist was banned from the NBA for life on Tuesday and is likely going to be forced to sell the team, but he is still cutting the checks for the foreseeable future. That didn’t stop the Clippers’ official website from making a statement after Tuesday’s ruling.
The team basically shut down its website for a period of time to display a simple message.
“WE ARE ONE.”
The overwhelming majority of people applauded Silver for acting swiftly and punishing Sterling as much as he possibly could. That group clearly includes those who work for the Clippers.
