|Nyah nyah, I can't hear you|
Adam Silver made the announcement a little past 2 pm today and his words were clear and direct. Sterling will be fined $2.5 million and possibly be forced to sell the team due to the racist remarks he made that were caught on tape, a la John "Apartheid" Kerry's faux pas.
Sterling told Silver that it was his voice on the tape in an interview they had before the press conference. It was the only Sterling Silver conference the two men had prior to press conference Silver gave regarding Sterling's punishment.
If Sterling sells the team, which he said that he does not want to do, he will make an enormous profit as the team's worth may be more than $500 million. At this time, Magic Johnson has said that he will not be buying the team, and Oprah Winfrey is also saying the same thing.
