    LeBron James has had a lot to say during the recent Donald Sterling situation and that continued on Wednesday, according to ESPN.

    After NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling from the NBA for life on Tuesday, the process started to move onto the next step. Sterling continues to own the Los Angeles Clippers but he cannot be present at any practices or games and he cannot take part in the day-to-day decisions of the team. His fellow owners will be able to take a vote that can force Sterling to sell the Clippers.

    James is one player that wants to see that happen and has gone as far as to demand it.

    "We're fighting to get an owner out of our league who shouldn't be a part of our league. No matter how long it takes, no matter how much money it costs, we need to get him out of there -- and whoever is associated with him doesn't belong in our league," James told ESPN.

    James not only has let his words do the talking in recent days but his actions as well. Monday, James along with his Heat teammates joined a protest started by the Los Angeles Clippers a day earlier when they dumped their warm-up t-shirts at half court.

    They followed that gesture up by wearing their warm-up shirts inside out in pregame and also on the bench during the game.

    "It's a monumental day and it's going to be remembered in NBA history. But the job is still not done. It's a win, but we still need the owners to do their part," James added per ESPN.

    James and the Heat are awaiting their opponent for the second round of the playoffs after completing a sweep of the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.
