LeBron James today spoke on the Donald Sterling situation for the first time since the disgraced LA Clippers owner was banned from the league by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
And he urged the rest of the league's owners to finish the job started by Silver and force Sterling to sell his stake of the Los Angeles franchise:
"It's a monumental day and it's going to be remembered in NBA history," James told the media after Heat practice.
"Bit the job is still not done. It's a win, but we still need the owners to do their part."
Sources yesterday reported that the Miami Heat ruled out any possibility of joining the Clippers in 2010 because of Sterling's involvement with the franchise and is clearly out to see him given the harshest punishment possible.
"We still have to wait on the owners' decision, which I believe will be in favor of what we all believe in," continued James.
No date has yet been set for the owner vote which could see Sterling forced to sell, but all 29 teams issues a statement this week in support of the decision to ban the 80-year-old following audio footage in which he was heard making racist statements.
And LeBron's comments came shortly after he sent a tweet congratulating the league for their quick action.
