During halftime of Game 4 between the Indiana Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks, Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley discussed L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling‘s racist rant and what they expect from NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
“This is the first test of Adam Silver. He’s got to suspend him right now,” Barkley said. “You can’t have this guy making statements like that. [Silver] has to suspend him and fine him immediately. He has to be suspended. … When you’re in a position of power, and you can take jobs and economic opportunities from people, that’s what crosses the line. We can’t have an NBA owner discriminating against a league — we’re a black league.”
