Now that Adam Silver has banned Donald Sterling for life from all NBA activities and fined the LA Clippers owner $2.5M, there’s been a collective sigh not of relief per se but of a semi-just due.
And the comments are rolling in:

Commissioner Silver….STRONG…way to take charge and protect our great league. — THREE (@DwyaneWade) April 29, 2014
Former and current NBA players are very happy and satisfied with Commissioner Silver’s ruling. — Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) April 29, 2014
There is no amount of money that excludes you from treating other people with respect. Thank you, Adam Silver. — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 29, 2014
A lifetime ban for Donald Sterling is a good start for the NBA. Now let’s see if the other team owners finish him off. Don’t exhale yet!

But. BUT. You knew only a millisecond would pass before the one liners, parodies and memes began rolling in.
