Saturday night in Memphis prior to the playoff game between the Grizzlies and Thunder, NBA commissioner Adam Silver took to the podium to discuss not a matter related to the court, rather he was forced to issue a statement on the recent allegations against Clippers owner Donald Sterling and some racist remarks that he made toward his girlfriend.
You can watch the entire press conference that took place in the video below.
Silver said all that we thought he would say. He and the league do have to conduct a full investigation into the matter, an investigation which he hopes to have wrapped up in the next few days.
Although, as I and many other people have stated throughout the day, no one will really be happy unless they never see Sterling in the league ever again in any shape, form or fashion. They at least won’t be seeing him during Sunday’s game against the Warriors as he has agreed not to attend the festivities, as Silver pointed out in the presser.
