1. STERLING SCANDAL
Banned for life: The reviews are in. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver scored a slam dunk yesterday in banning L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life. A $2.5 million fine was also part of the deal. Oh yes, and there was a basketball game too. The Clippers rebounded to win Game 5 of their playoff series with the Golden State Warriors 113-103. L.A. leads the series 3-2
2. SEVERE WEATHER
Lots of rain: Severe thunderstorms may roar across the southeastern United States again today, bringing with them a slight risk of hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. About 37 million people are at risk in places like Jacksonville, Florida; Charlotte, North Carolina; Virginia Beach; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Atlanta, the National Weather Service said. Heavy rain will be the norm

The execution was halted, but the result was still death. A second execution scheduled for yesterday has been put on hold while the state investigates.
