SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- There's anger, frustration and calls for action after an audio recording surfaced of a man identified as Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to the basketball games.
The recording was posted on TMZ's website.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says the league finds the audio "disturbing and offensive" and says Sterling has agreed to not attend the Clippers' game Sunday at Golden State.
Silver says the NBA will move quickly in its investigation and hopes to have it "wrapped up in the next few days."
Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, a target of Sterling's remarks, says he won't attend Clippers' games as long as Sterling remains the owner.
Miami Heat star LeBron James says "there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league."
Clippers President Andy Roeser says the recording doesn't reflect Sterling's beliefs and says the woman in the audio "is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would `get even."'
