As NBA commissioner Adam Silver was handing out a lifetime ban to their disgraced owner, the LA Clippers made a stand of their own via their official website.

Anyone trying to gain access to the site is met with the simple, but hugely effective, image shown above.

No other content is visible or accessible as the team attempts to show their stance against the racially charged comments expressed by their owner in recent days.

Sterling still remains as owner of the Los Angeles franchise at present but Silver himself urged the group of franchise owners to throw out the 80-year-old via a three-quarters majority vote.

The website move is a classy response from the Clippers in the face of adversity, and followers other silent protests such as those seen by the Clippers own roster during Game Four of the NBA playoffs when Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and the entire team wore their warm-up jerseys inside out so as to hide the team logo.
