While Sterling has had a history of this type of behavior, his alleged remarks are being investigated by the NBA. However, many players like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James have spoken up and during a press conference in Malaysia, President Barack Obama spoke about the alleged situation as well via NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper:

While most fans want NBA commissioner Adam Silver to make a decision now on the situation, the league has to investigate the tape obtained by TMZ.com first before taking any further action. However, if the investigation shows that it is Sterling, there are expectations that the league eventually remove him as an owner due to his history.

With the Clippers’ losing ways for 30 years, this is the franchise’s best chance to win an NBA championship. While the team considered boycotting Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday as a response to their owner’s alleged remarks, they will play for each other, the coaching staff, and their fans.
