Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been suspended for life and fined $2.5 million.
As I noted earlier, Adam Silver promised a quick investigation and I expected him to penalize Sterling as harshly as possible and did he ever. I personally want to commend him on taking the action needed and let everyone know that these type actions will not be tolerated. Tracy Wolfson of CBS Sports just tweeted, "Wizards staying at my hotel. Cheers just came from a room nearby after Silver made his announcement". I expect that's the reaction of just about everyone in the NBA today. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
The Bulls have fired head coach Tom Thibodeau .
As expected, the Bulls have officially let Thibodeau go. Not that another Derrick Rose injury is his fault, but between the disappointing season and the fact that there is an apparent rift between him and some of his players, the front office thought that it was simply time for him to go. There is no word as to who the favorite to replace him might be. Analysis: Howard Bender
