The reactions to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s banning Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life came fast and furious Tuesday, and they weren’t limited to basketball types.
Several current and former Redskins players expressed support for Silver’s decision on Twitter.
Congrats to the @NBA & Commissioner Silver showing great leadership

Perry Riley was a little more vague in his commentary, but based on the timing of his shout-out, I’m going to assume he wasn’t merely excited about another night of NBA playoff action.
S/o to the NBA!
