Heat star LeBron James summed up his thoughts on the situation: "No room for Donald Sterling in our league."
"As commissioner of our league, you have to make a stand and you have to be very aggressive with it," James said. "I don't know what it's going to be, but you just can't have that in our league."
Michael Jordan, the only NBA majority owner who is African American, had no comment at this time, his business manager said.
Former Clipper Baron Davis took to Twitter to express his thoughts about Sterling.
