This "Saturday Night Live" cold opening mocking Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling could very well have been scripted from unreleased recordings of the billionaire real estate developer, since it pretty much nails his particular brand of abhorrent and clueless racism.

Bobby Moynihan does a fine job lampooning Sterling's racism and his infantile whiny thing, but Tarran Killam's Adam Silver may be the peak of the sketch. "This has been a terrible time for all of us in the NBA," says Killam's Silver, "but frankly it's been a great time for me, commissioner Adam Silver."
