Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeted Tuesday that he agreed “100%” with NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s decision to ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life.
I agree 100% with Commissioner Silvers findings and the actions taken against Donald Sterling

Cuban previously expressed concern about booting Sterling from the NBA, saying it would be a “very slippery slope” that could lead to anyone in the league receiving similarly harsh treatment for their privately held beliefs.
“In this country, people are allowed to be morons,” he said Monday of Sterling’s racist comments.
