Proud of Commissioner Silver and what he did today! Respect him taking a strong stance on such an important issue #zerotolerance

As long as Sterling can still profit from the players on the Clippers hard work, we haven’t done enough. We need to get more involved.

This was a defining moment for the NBA. We’ve defined ourselves as an org that won’t tolerate ignorance & bigotry. Left no doubt. #proud

Its a shame that these great playoffs had to be interrupted by this ignorance. Commissioner Silver did a great job. Now lets hoop. #NBA— nick vanexel (@vanexel31) April 29, 2014
