    NBC reporting $5 million fine and "indefinite" suspension.

    I'm watching Chris Broussard going on about how discrimination is bad. Unless the owner is gay, then he's going to hell and he wouldn't take gay money.

    Just banned for life. ... Good for Silver.

    $2.5 million fine, also. ... going to "anti-discrimination" organizations, whatever they are.

    Also going to do everything in his power to force a sale of the team.

    He handled that really unambiguously. ... and pretty perfectly.

    Wow. Major cajones by Silver, IMO

    LA Times had his son-in-law, a Clips executive and the heir apparent, condemning him. That's being seen as the family's cynical way of keeping the team by forcing a "transfer." Supposedly Silver isn't buying it and wants the whole family out.

    I'm stunned Broussard still has a job after that whole ordeal.

    Holy crap, I didn't think they'd do it. Glad they did, but I definitely thought it was just going to be a big fine.

    Good for Silver and the NBA.

    Excellent move by Adam Silver. A seven-figure fine, lifetime ban and encouragement to sell the team. Tough to drop a hammer much more forcefully while still maintaining tact.

    Banned for life. Applause.
