It didn't take long for the world to starting sounding off on Donald Sterling's lifetime ban from the NBA. But what do NBA players think?
Here are 15 player reactions to Tuesday's announcement:
Couldn't agree more. This was the right decision and it does deserve respect.
Silver did take charge in his first big incident as Commissioner.
Incredible leadership was the only thing that was going to get the NBA through this situation.
More respect here from Barnes. He's right about zero tolerance for things like Sterling said.
Silver not only listened to the players, he must have listened to all those that surround him.
For life. Aka - he gone.
Ignorance is a nice way to phrase what Sterling said.
That is that. Sterling is gone and he'll likely sell the team in the near future.
The Commissioner sure made a lot of people happy with his decision. That's the way it should be.
Protecting the league is exactly what Silver did. Now it can become more powerful without idiots like Sterling.
The owners have to make Sterling sell, right?
It would be a great feeling to belong to a league that does the right thing.
When stuff goes down, you truly get an idea of whether people are together. The NBA is.
We should all give Silver a standing ovation. He did all he could.
The final step is still to come, but it will happen. Sterling will sell and he'll be gone.
