Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Thankfully, Donald Sterling's tenure as an NBA franchise owner is a giant step closer to its conclusion.
On Tuesday, commissioner Adam Silver announced a lifetime ban and $2.5M fine - the maximum allowable penalty - for the Clippers' racist owner.
Silver added that he will seek approval from league owners to force Sterling to sell the team, and that he "fully expect(s)" to receive such support.
Of course, it's a safe bet that Silver already knows precisely how much support he has from his bosses, who already heard from the league's sponsors.
As for concerns that Sterling is being punished for comments made in private, Silver says the NBA's longest tenured owner offered neither remorse nor an apology for his despicable sentiments.
In other words, Sterling has owned those fateful words, and now, he'll wear them forever.
How does this relate to the NFL?
As Mike Florio sees it, Silver's bold move set a precedent for punishing franchise owners who express similarly toxic views.
In a statement, the Oneida Nation declared that the NBA had cleared the path for the NFL to finally rid the Washington franchise of its blatantly racist name.
