ND Coach Mike Brey commends on NBA decision to ban Sterling

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced a lifetime ban for Clippers' Owner Donald Sterling, Tuesday.  "Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facility and he may not participate in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team," Silver said during an afternoon news conference.

We caught up with Notre Dame Head Basketball Coach, Mike Brey a short time after the decision was announced.  "I couldn't agree more with what the commissioner of the NBA did," Brey said.  "If anybody was worried about the change of leadership from David Stern to Adam Silver, I think Commissioner Adam Silver really proved his worth."

Brey said this controversy, and Sterling's comments, have a negative impact far beyond the NBA.

"I'm in basketball, that resonates not only in the NBA community, those comments resonate through college basketball, high school basketball and youth basketball," Brey said.  "Very disappointing, but I commend the commissioner in taking swift action."
