Following the report that several NBA teams had moved away from the term “owner” due to racial connotations, the commissioner of the NBA has just confirmed that the league’s upper management has decided to no longer use the term as well.

“We moved away from that term years ago,” Adam Silver recently said to TMZ. Although he conceded that the word still occasionally slips through on NBA memos, Silver added that the majority of teams in the league are now moving away from the term as well.
