Sterling traumatized after ban

V. Stiviano says Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is confused and traumatized after the NBA banned him for life for racist statements he made during a recorded conversation with her.

Stiviano told Barbara Walters on ABC's "20/20" that Sterling feels alone and not supported by those around him, but added that he should "absolutely" apologize for telling her to not post online photos of herself with black people, including basketball great Magic Johnson.

The recording, which an attorney for Stiviano said was leaked by a third party, led to public outcry across the country and sponsors to drop the Clippers.

On Tuesday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life, fined him $2.5 million and urged league owners to force him to sell the team.
