Kudos to certain individuals for stepping up and making the NBA address Clippers owner Donald Sterling.  Bobcats owner and NBA legend Michael Jordan has stepped up to the plate and addressed Sterling now as well.

“As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views.

I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly.

As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA – or anywhere else – for the kind of racism. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport.

In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot & must not tolerate discrimination at any level”
