Keith Strudler: NBA Bans Clippers Owner

Adam Silver looked about as comfortable as a kid during his Bar Mitzvah. But for Silver, there would be no party at the end or a stack of checks to build his college fund. Just a room full of questions from hungry journalists, any of whom could ask the question that submarined Silver’s legacy before he’s even bought his own office furniture. The stakes were as high as they could be for a league that thrives on dramatic finishes. And Silver was all alone with the ball in his hands.
