Adam Silver changes the NBA for the better

From where I sit it looks like Adam Silver manged to formulate the perfect response...

Sadly, Donald Sterling still stands to profit from the exposure of his true nature. Although the NBA plans to force him to sell the Clippers, Sterling will see a hefty payday. Forbes has the team listed with a $575 million value. Tragically there's nothing the NBA can do about that. The other problem is that despite all this exposure and negative publicity Sterling isn't going to change. Neither will anyone else sharing his disgusting world views. Change will start in youth, not adults. The key is education, not denunciation. That being said, it's great to see everyone on the same page. Having Adam Silver stand before the sporting world and speak on behalf of everyone in the NBA was a great moment in sports history. The anger is his voice was palpable. So was the passion. It's something we don't get to see very often from the head of a league. It was one of the biggest moments in NBA history. Adam Silver has been in charge for a matter of weeks and he has already changed the game. Good for him!

At least that's how I see it and I sit in the cheap seats.
