NEW YORK The National Basketball Association on Tuesday banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling from the game for life and fined him $2.5 million for racist comments that drew a storm of outrage from players, fans, commercial sponsors and even President Barack Obama.
Sterling bought the Clippers, then based in San Diego, in 1981 for $13 million at a time when basketball was far less commercially successful than it is today, and the franchise could now be worth as much as $800 million, Boland estimated. The team, long a perennial underdog, moved to Los Angeles in 1984 and only recently became a league powerhouse.
Sterling, the longest tenured owner of any of the 30 NBA teams, will be barred from any role in the operations of his team or be able to serve as one of the league's governors, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said at a news conference in New York.
Silver said the decision to ban Sterling from the game had not taken his past history into account. He said, however, that when the owners vote on whether to force him to sell, "they will take into account a lifetime of behavior."
Sterling could not be reached for immediate comment on Tuesday.

The decision to ban Sterling drew praise from around the league. The Clippers said in Beats By Dre All Models a statement that the team "wholeheartedly" supports the NBA's move, and members of the cross town rival Los Angeles Lakers joined Mayor Eric Garcetti at a news conference in a show of support for Silver.

"Every owner would be worried that it would create a situation where people later came after them," Boland said. Stiviano about photographs posted to Instagram. "People call you and tell you that I have black people on my Instagram. And it bothers you," the voice said to be Stiviano's says.
"The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful," Silver told reporters as he confronted his first major crisis since he was named commissioner in February.
Persuading the other owners may be an uphill battle, said Robert Boland, chairman of the sports management department at New York University.
"I want to personally thank Commissioner Silver for bringing down the hammer, for being as strong as he could be," Garcetti said. "You might be able to buy a team, but you don't own this city. This is our town."
An attorney for Stiviano declined to comment on the decision.
