“It is shocking that anyone could hold the kind of offensive and feeble minded views that are being attributed allegedly to the Clippers owner, Donald Sterling. The diverse staff members of the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise are unified in encouraging Commissioner Silver and the NBA to respond with swift and appropriate action consistent with a strong zero tolerance approach to this type of reprehensible behavior.”
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday to address the NBA’s investigation into Sterling’s comments. Kevin Johnson will also hold a Tuesday press conference to speak on behalf of the NBA Player’s Association.
The Clippers and Warriors are scheduled to play game five of their first round series Tuesday night in Los Angeles. The series is tied at two games apiece.
