MOUNT VERNON - A former player for the Los Angeles Clippers spoke with News 12 and says he agrees with the NBA's decision to ban his former boss, Donald Sterling, for life.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, of Rye, announced Sterling would be banned for life after he was caught on tape making racist remarks. He was also fined $2.5 million and is being urged to sell the team.

Mount Vernon native Lowes Moore played for the Clippers in the early 80s when they were in San Diego. Moore says during his time with the Clippers, he rarely interacted with Sterling, who bought the team in 1981. However, Moore says he remembers hearing about instances of discrimination involving Sterling.

Moore, now executive director of the Mount Vernon Boys and Girls Club, says he agrees with the decision to ban Sterling.

"They mean business and I thought, rightfully so," Moore told News 12.
