Goodbye Donald Sterling! On Tuesday morning, NBA commissioner, Adam Silver announced to the nation that the Clippers owner will no longer be associated with the NBA. Silver was stern in his response, calling Sterling’s racial remarks “deeply offensive and harmful”

“Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” Silver said. “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.”

“He will also be barred from attending NBA board of Governors meetings or participating in any other league activity. I am also fining Mr. Sterling 2.5 million dollars, the maximum amount allowed under the NBA constitution. These funds will be donated to organizations dedicated to anti discrimination  intolerance efforts jointly selected by the NBA and its players association.

“As for Mr. Sterling’s ownership interest in the Clippers, I will urge the board of governors to exercise its authority to force a sell of the team and will do everything in my power to ensure that that happens.”

Sterling came under fire for making disparaging and racist remarks about Black people which was released in its entirety. The Clippers will take on the Golden State Warriors tonight for a highly anticipated game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
