Kevin Johnson: Everyone expects Sterling to fight

In a swift and historic move, the National Basketball Association banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling from having any association with the league - for life.

What Sterling's ban means for Clipper finances

This comes after audio recordings of Sterling going on a racist rant to his now ex-mistress were made public.

In addition to the ban, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told reporters that he would ask the board of governors to force Sterling to sell the team he has owned for 33 years.

Extended racist rant released

But Sterling remains defiant. He told a veteran broadcaster that his team is not for sale.

Sacramento Mayor and former NBA star Kevin Johnson weighs in OutFront.

    you the press are making this a "race" issue. What we have here is a man who does not want to be reminded that his reported mistress is part black by his reported mistress' association with blacks in public. this is all about the mans' ego. and his ability to use money and power to control the reported mistress. by the way, why did not his wife put her foot down a lot sooner. get real, this is a triangle gone bad

    Whoa, whoa. You guys maybe taking Mark Cuban out of context. At 2:19pm he tweeted: "I agree 100% with Commissioner Silvers findings and the actions taken against Donald Sterling" so it sounded like he was pretty okay with the result.
