The NBA has decided to ban Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for racial comments.

Sponsors dropped their advertising sponsorships with the LA's Clippers, while more and more superstar basketball players line up to condemn Donald Sterling and wanted him to step aside.

The NAACP has rescinded their previous plans to award him for his past financial support following allegations that LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling apparently made racial comments in a controversy that has drawn international scorn, and many question his future with that major league franchise.

Some of Sterling's fellow owners are also denouncing the comments, including Bruce Levenson, Michael Jordan and Josh Harris.
