Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling received a lifetime ban from the NBA and a $2.5 million fine from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on Tuesday as a response to racist comments made during a taped conversation which was made public last week. With their owner removed from the NBA, the Clippers took to the court for Game 5 in Los Angeles with fans showing their support in a stand against racism.
