NBA Closes The Clippers & Warriors Locker Rooms To The Media Pre-Game After Donald Sterling’s Lifetime Ban!
This is pretty smart!
NBA commissioner Adam Silver handed down his punishment for Donald Sterling’s ridiculous self today, and everyone is talking about it.
But there’s still a playoff game tonight between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors that we have to think about!
Since the NBA is about the players, first and foremost, they’ve issued a statement that both team locker rooms will be closed pre-game. John Ireland, of ESPNLA 710, reported that this happened after they received too many media requests — but added that the press will be allowed in afterward.
It makes perfect sense since the players have already dealt with way more distraction than they should have to.
Hopefully, they can put it all behind them tonight when they step out on the floor!
