This article is more than 5 years old.

Adam Silver is the commissioner of the NBA and all eyes are on him, waiting to see what the league will do to Clippers owner Donald Sterling, if it can be proved that it was Sterling's voice on that racially charged recording.

Portions of the recording were released over the weekend by TMZ and Deadspin.

In the recording posted on TMZ, the man questions his girlfriend's association with minorities. TMZ reported the woman, V. Stiviano, who is of black and Mexican descent, posted a picture of herself with Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson on Instagram - which has since been removed.

The man asked Stiviano not to broadcast her association with black people or bring black people to games. The man specifically mentioned Magic Johnson on the recording, saying "don't bring him to my games, OK?"

Kevin Arnovitz has been covering the story as NBA editor for and joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson with the latest.

The Associated Press contributed reporting to this article.
