The push for Donald Sterling to sell LA Clippers intensifies

The NBA owners' advisory/finance committee has held its first meeting about Donald Sterling and is committed to ending his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers ``as expeditiously as possible.''

The 10-member committee held a conference call Thursday to discuss ``the process for termination of Donald T. Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers,'' the league says in a statement.

Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million Tuesday for making racist comments.

Silver said he also would urge owners to force Sterling to sell.

The committee plans to meet again next week.

    Mob mentality, everyone gangs up on Sterling. Let's shift the focus to V and whoever else was in that room recording it, was their motive really to expose Sterling or plot for some blackmailing? If the comments were made in a private context, where does everyone get the right to hang the man? Don't expect Sterling to roll over and hand over the team to the people who are ganging up on him. The man will create more legal turmoil before this is finalized.
