Nets players react to Donald Sterling's lifetime ban

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Today, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling will be banned from the NBA and anything related to the NBA and its community for the rest of his life. He will also pose a $2.5 million fine on Sterling, which is the maximum amount he is allowed to, which will be donated to a charity on the NBA's behalf.

It was a historic day for newly-minted commish Adam Silver and a rally against racism, ignorance and hatred.

Some notable Brooklyn Nets players took to Twitter during the press conference to offer up their initial thoughts. First, Jason Collins who knows the challenges first hand about facing discrimination.

Second, Shaun Livingston, who once played for Mr. Sterling and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Previously, Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have all offered up support for their friend and former colleague Doc Rivers in his handling the situation.

The Brooklyn Nets' Twitter account retweeted both the Livingston and Collins tweets, which we can assume is an endorsement of their player's comments and support for Adam Silver's decision.
