VORHEES, NJ - The NBA made their official ruling on LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling that involves; being banned from games, $2.5M fine, and sale of the team to a new ownership. Sterling was caught making racist comments over a phone conversation with his girlfriend that caused worldwide controversy. Soul's Co Owner, Cosmo DeNicola met with the team today, per source, to address the issue.

"While many personalities and franchise owners have addressed the issue publicly, I felt it was extremely important to speak to our players in person," DeNicola said in a press release. "I wanted to make sure that they knew that the comments made by Sterling in no way, reflect the beliefs of myself and the rest of the Philadelphia Soul ownership group."

The team gathered in a photo where they held signs that displayed #Team, #Love, and #Family. These signs were intended to ignored the alleged racist comments that were made last week.

"These gifted athletes aren't just players." DeNicola said. "They deserve respect for the contribution they make to our community, our fans and their families."

The Soul travel to face the Pittsburgh Power this Saturday at the CONSOL Energy Center at 7:00pm ET. The game is catchable on The Comcast Network.
