Magic Johnson Tweets Approval of Adam Silver’s Donald Sterling Ruling

New NBA commissioner Adam Silver stepped up to the plate for the first major decision of his tenure on Tuesday and hit a grand slam. Silver laid the smack down on Donald Sterling for his racist comments, banning him for life from the NBA and all business regarding the Los Angeles Clippers. The commish also fined the billionaire $2.5 million, which is the most allowed under NBA bylaws.

Shortly after Silver held his press conference to make the announcement, Magic Johnson took to Twitter to tweet his approval of the commissioner’s decision.

Just like that, with one decision, Silver has laid the foundation for his reign as league commissioner. All future actions will lead back to this press conference, and the precedence it set.
