The NBA has said it is investigating Clippers owner Donald Sterling and the situation fairly, and will do so as quickly as possible, but are not prepared to discuss sanctions yet, according to Sporting News.
In the meantime, this fan may have a suggestion:
Look, don’t get too mad at him. He’s just a typical Democrat. @Sandy_DDubfan@HEPHNERJEFF@JeremySF
