Pistons, Gores support ban of Sterling
The Pistons were one of many NBA teams to publicly support Commissioner Adam Silver’s lifetime ban of Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Tuesday.
Following a trend started by the Clippers moments after the official announcement of Sterling’s ban, the Pistons posted a picture to their Twitter and Facebook accounts saying simply "We Are One" along with the team logo in white on a black background. Other teams, including the Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks, went even further, changing the front page of their websites to a "We Are One" graphic.

The Pistons also issued a short statement from owner Tom Gores that backed Silver’s decision:
"I am proud of Adam Silver for providing the leadership and strength necessary in this situation. He has my full support."
