One of the more unfortunate occurrences took place this weekend when TMZ Sports obtained audio of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making some derogatory, racial remarks toward his girlfriend about being seen in public with “black people” and even calling out NBA legend Magic Johnson himself.
Because of this, the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver have scheduled a press conference for Saturday evening to address the matter, which is a very good decision on the league’s part.
Although they released a brief statement on Saturday morning announcing that they are looking into the matter, there are some questions that Silver needs to answer directly, and he will give the media that opportunity on Saturday night.
Most would agree that Sterling should be permanently banned from the league after this behavior, but there are a lot of legal issues that need to be sorted through first, but a suspension and fine for now may be likely.
Whatever the case ends up being, we will find out tonight and here is how you can watch it all unfold live:
