This is statement from Team President and Governor Josh Kroenke about the NBA action against Donald Sterling:

"Kroenke Sports & Entertainment and the Denver Nuggets wholeheartedly and emphatically support Commissioner Adam Silver's decision that Donald Sterling be fined and banned for life from any involvement with the National Basketball Association.  Mr. Sterling’s words have absolutely no place in our working family or in a global sport that values inclusion, diversity and tolerance of people regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation."

For those that had been wondering about an official statement from Josh Kroenke, here it is. It seems as if the NBA has been completely united behind new Commissioner Adam Silver. This sends a clear signal that the NBA is completely united, including players, that this is the appropriate way forward.

What do you think Nuggets fans. What do you think of the penalty and do you believe the appropriate measures were taken?
