Disgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has finally found a legal battle he is unwilling to wage. Banned for life by the NBA following published racist remarks, Sterling has decided to allow his wife, Shelly, negotiate a forced sale of the team with the league, according to published reports.

The procedure to terminate Donald Sterling’s ownership of the Clippers has produced a number of amusing ironies. When the 30 NBA team executives vote on June 3, Sterling cannot vote. Even though he still owns the team, he has been banned for life under NBA bylaws. The league has appointed Dick Parsons, who once was chairman of Time-Warner, to run the Clippers.

PODCAST: Inexcusable Screw-up By Referees in Clippers-Thunder Game


Doc Rivers is probably going to get fined by the NBA for saying the Clippers were “robbed” last night in Oklahoma City. That is the kind of comment that crosses the line, no matter how true it might have been. But what about referee Tony Brothers? Is he going to be publicly chastised by the league office for saying replays of the ball that clearly went off of Reggie Jackson’s hand were “inconclusive?” [Read more…]
