LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA.  The league took the action after determining that that the voice on the tape making racist comments was that of Sterling. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Sterling admitted that it was his voice on the recording, and says he will try to force a sale of the Clippers.  He also fined Sterling $2.5 million.    Silver called Sterling's comments and views "Deeply offensive and harmful."
