Jaguars players react to Adam Silver's lifetime ban for Donald Sterling

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

NBA commissioner Adam Silver's lifetime ban of Donald Sterling has received nothing but praise within the athletic community, including current and former Jacksonville Jaguars players.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced on Tuesday afternoon that Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was receiving a lifetime ban.

Sterling is currently banned from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA. He can't go to any games, he can't sit in on any practices, and he's also being fined $2.5 million dollars, the maximum amount allowed by the NBA.

Current and former NBA players tweeted their reactions, and it's been unanimous approval. But this was an issue that was bigger than basketball, spreading throughout the entire athletic community, and several current and former Jaguars players tweeted their reactions as well.
