Reinsdorf statement on Donald Sterling

Posted: Updated:
We completely support Commissioner Silver’s decision today regarding Clippers owner Donald Sterling, and praise him for his prompt investigation and action.  The Commissioner was correct to ban Mr. Sterling from all official NBA business, to levy the stiffest allowable fine, and we will support his recommendation to press for Mr. Sterling to relinquish his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers franchise.  We believe Commissioner Silver’s decision reflects the best interests of the NBA and public civility.

The league’s decision underscores the severity and reprehensible nature of the comments attributed to Donald Sterling.  These comments in no way reflect the attitude, values, and culture of the Bulls and White Sox organizations.  This behavior cannot be tolerated in any form.   

Discrimination and prejudice of any kind have no place in sports or in our society.
