Less than an hour after NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for violating league rules through his expressions of offensive and hurtful views, the team released a two-sentence statement. \"We wholeheartedly support and embrace the decision by the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver today. Now the healing process begins,\" the statement read. The Clippers website also greets visitors with the simple slogan, \"WE ARE ONE\" on a black background containing solely the team logo without any links. A recording became public on Friday, when TMZ.com posted nearly 10 minutes of audio it said is a conversation between Sterling and his girlfriend, in which a man tells a woman he is bothered by her association with African-Americans and asks her not to bring them to Clippers games. Deadspin.com also released another tape, said to be between Sterling and his girlfriend, in which the man tells the woman he supports the players because his money pays for their food, clothes, cars and houses. Silver said on Tuesday that the NBAs investigation into the situation included an interview of Sterling, who confirmed it was his voice on the recording. Silver is also urging the NBA Board of Governors to force Sterling to sell the team. Nearly lost in the middle of the mess is that the Clippers are set to host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night in Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinal with the series even at two games apiece. The Clippers statement added that the organization will hold a press conference Tuesday night prior to their game. Other statements and tweets following the punishment issued by Silver include: \"I agree 100% with Commissioner Silvers findings and the actions taken against Donald Sterling,\" Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeted shortly after the announcement. \"Commissioner Silver showed great leadership in banning LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life,\" tweeted former Lakers great Earvin \"Magic\" Johnson. \"Former and current NBA players are very happy and satisfied with Commissioner Silvers ruling \" \"I commend Commissioner Adam Silver in being diligent in how he handled this important matter. He acted swiftly and appropriately with the severity of the penalty and I strongly support his decision,\" said Atlanta Hawks majority owner Bruce Levenson in a statement. \"The Orlando Magic feel the recent reprehensible comments by Donald Sterling were absolutely unacceptable and do not reflect the values and beliefs of our organization or our league. We applaud the leadership of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, as well as head coach Doc Rivers and his players, who are at the epicenter of the situation,\" read a statement released by the Orlando Magic. Former NBA center and current NBA analyst Shaquille ONeal tweeted, \"Way to go, Commissioner Silver! The NBA stands for everybody!\" Miami Heat forward LeBron James tweeted, \"Commissioner Silver thank you for protecting our beautiful and powerful league!! Great leader!! #BiggerThanBasketball #StriveForGreatness\" \"Standing ovation for Commissioner Silver. Big time decision standing up for the league and its players. Now, Gotta see it through\" tweeted Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry. A statement from the Toronto Raptors read, \"As a proud member of the National Basketball Association, we stand strongly in our belief that the comments attributed to Mr. Sterling have no place in our society or sport. Our organization will always work to contribute to a culture of diversity and acceptance in this league and fully support the actions taken today. We thank Commissioner Adam Silver, and all of the NBA players, for their leadership on this important issue.\" The following statement was released by Golden State Warriors Co-Owner and CEO Joe Lacob on behalf of the entire Warriors organization: \"We applaud the firm punishment handed out today by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and appreciate the swiftness with which the NBA conducted its investigation. Similarly, we anticipate that the NBA Board of Governors will act promptly to put this chapter behind us. As I noted on Sunday, the sentiments expressed on the audio recording were completely inappropriate, unacceptable and senseless. We cannot tolerate such feelings or beliefs, not only in the NBA, but in society in general. There is absolutely no room for racism in our world, period.\" \"The Timberwolves stand firmly in full support of the swift and impactful action taken today by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. His leadership and direction in this matter is completely appropriate and appreciated by the Timberwolves organization. We stand unified with Commissioner Silver today and reaffirm our organizations zero tolerance approach to the type of reprehensible behavior which caused this action,\" read a statement from Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor. George Kittle Jersey . Armstrong was given the rank of \"Chevalier\" -- or Knight -- in the \"Legion dHonneur\" in 2005, the last year of his seven consecutive Tour de France victories. Zane Beadles Jersey . Brad Malone had the other goal for the Monsters (1-1-0), while Elliott chipped in an assist for a three-point night and the games first star. Bryan Lerg also had two assists. Corban Knight and Max Reinhart scored for the Heat (1-1-0), who opened their season Friday with a 5-2 win over the Monsters in Cleveland. http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/You ... rs-Jersey/. The 24-year-old Raley was 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA for Chicago in his first two career starts after being called up from Iowa on Aug. 7. He was optioned to Iowa on Monday after losing 3-0 to Cincinnati in Chicago on Sunday. Jimmie Ward Jersey . The Padres made the moves before Fridays game at Washington. They promoted infielder Jace Peterson from Double-A San Antonio and right-hander Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso. Reuben Foster Jersey . The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season. The five-foot-eight 166-pound centre also has 28 points (10-18) in 15 games with AHL Oklahoma City.PHILADELPHIA - Toronto FC loaded up on defenders and added talent in goal while springing a few surprises on a busy day at the MLS SuperDraft on Thursday.GM Tim Bezbatchenko and head coach Greg Vanney had plenty of options with the sixth, ninth and 11th overall picks, as well as two selections in the second round.They spent the sixth pick on Syracuses Alex Bono, the first goalie taken, before plucking French centre back Clement Simonin (North Carolina State) out of their hat. Toronto took Syracuse defender Skylar Thomas, a native of Pickering, Ont., with the 11th pick.Toronto selected South Florida centre back/fullback Wesley Charpie and Cal State Northridge midfielder/forward Edwin Rivas in the second round. Bono and Thomas anchored a stingy Orangemen defence that finished third in the NCAA last season with a goals-against average of 0.55. Syracuse registered 12 shutouts en route to 16-4-1 record.The six-foot-three Syracuse goalie, a finalist for the Missouri Athletic Clubs Hermann Trophy as NCAA mens player of the year, is currently in camp with the U.S. senior team.We thought he was the best and most well-rounded goalkeeper in the draft, said Vanney.An underclassman, the 20-year-old Bono is a Generation Adidas player, meaning his contract will not count against Torontos salary cap.Toronto has a more than capable starter in Joe Bendik. But club officials thought more competition was needed in goal. Backup Chris Konopka has played two league games in five seasons split among four teams. At 20, Quillan Roberts is seen as a future talent.Toronto will look to give its young goalies playing time in its new USL Pro team while keeping them ready in case Bendik needs a break.With only captain Steven Caldwell and sophomore Nick Hagglund as true centre backs on its roster, Toronto needs help at the heart of its defence.The six-foot-one, 179-pound Simonin caught most by surprise, with Conor Donovan the North Carolina State defender expected to go first.The 23-year-old French player transferred to NC State from Lander University for his final two seasons. But his senior year was cut sort by hernia surgery after just three games.So nobody saw him over the course of his seenior year, said Vanney.ddddddddddddToronto had seen him and rated him highly, enough to make him the second defender taken in the draft with Seattle, which had Simonin play on its under-23 team, angling to get him.Toronto considered trading down but thought they might lose him,Hes a left-footed left centre-back who is outstanding on the ball. Hes a fabulous soccer player, he makes very good decisions and reads the game very well. Hes a very well-rounded centre-back.Vanney liked what he saw of the six-foot-four, 205-pound Thomas at Syracuse and two combines, praising him for his athleticism, maturity and leadership.Growing up, Thomas supported Toronto FC and is no stranger to seeing games at BMO Field.For those wondering, the 21-year-old Thomas says everyone in his family has a name starting with S.They wanted to name me Tyler and Kyle and the same time so they named me Skylar, he explained.The 22-year-old Charpie, a six-foot-one 173-pounder who had five goals and 21 assists in 81 games for the South Florida Bulls, is seen as an athletic, young option to cover for Mark Bloom at right back.Like Simonin, Toronto rated Rivas highly and thought the 23-year-old would not be known to many playing at Cal State Northridge, although scouts were drawn to the school to see forward Sagi Lev-Avi who was taken two spots above Rivas by Columbus.And like Thomas, the five-foot-11, 170-pound Rivas impressed at a workout in Nevada ahead of the MLS Combine in Florida.Hes a left-footed forward/winger who can either beat you with power and pace down the line or he can come inside and get to goal, Vanney said. He provides us some more ideas, options on the flanks.Rivas, who had 17 goals and 10 assists in 78 games for the Matadors, can play on both sides and up front although Toronto envisions him playing on the wing.With the signing of Michigan State midfielder Jay Chapman as a homegrown player, Toronto saw it as a good day.We are ecstatic about the young depth that we have on our team and we know theyre all hungry to compete for minutes on this roster, Vanney said.The third and fourth rounds of the MLS draft go Jan. 20 by telephone.___Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys \' \' \'
