The NBA stands as one.

Hours after Donald Sterling was banned for life by NBA commissioner Adam Silver for his racial comments in a recording, the league debuted its "We Are One" commercial, similar to the message posted earlier on the Clippers’ website.

The Clippers won Tuesday’s night’s emotional Game 5, 113-103, to take a 3-2 series lead, as game action returns to Oakland for Thursday’s Game 6 on Prime Ticket.

Along with the ban, Sterling was levied a $2.5M fine while Silver said he will do everything in his power to "force a sale" of the Clippers.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers: "He (Silver) made a decision that was the right one, that had to be made. I don’t think this is something we rejoice in or anything like that. I told the players about the decision. I think they were just happy that it was a resolution and it’€™s over, at least the start of it."
