"Yokohama applauds NBA Commissioner Adam Silver's leadership and actions by banning Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life from any association with the team or NBA," said Andrew Briggs, YTC director, marketing and product planning. "With the Clippers' agreement, we have found a way to continue moving forward and give back to the community and our fellow Clipper fans."

Briggs said the money will be donated to NBA-sponsored charitable organizations dedicated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts.
