Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life from the NBA after he made racist comments.
Sports bans aren't new.
In 1990, New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner was banned from day-to-day management of the club by Major League Baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent.
Steinbrenner was reinstated in 1993.
Sterling is 80. He comes from another time and is not only the senior NBA owner –– since 1981 –– but also, although probably this won't surprise you, historically the very worst owner in all of sport.
