A couple of items of note...

A week before the infamous interview that Sterling had with Anderson Cooper, Cooper interviewed Elgin Baylor and wife regarding old man Sterling. I watched the interview on CNN.com last night, and it was nothing earth-shattering...Baylor just basically reiterated what he said in his lawsuit against Sterling and the NBA, plus more.

Here's the video: http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/05/15/ac-sterlin g-baylor.cnn.html

Meanwhile, the L.A. Times has an article up with a breakdown of old lawsuits that he and his wife were involved in over the years, including the ones that weren't as well-publicized. I just read through a good chunk of it; if it doesn't show that Sterling is a living piece of excrement, I don't know what is. I mean, Sterling is a lawyer by trade, so it's not much of a surprise that he and the wife are sue-happy...but this story makes it out to show that Donald and Shelly live for ruining peoples' lives. June 3rd can't come any sooner!

I suspect they will both be gone from this planet before they are done suing. Heck they may sue all of us for talking about them suing.

Cuban trying to challenge the league's decision with his comments as well. Even thought I didn't find anything he said offensive, if taken out of contexts some people may throw stones without listening to an entire interview

Yeah, Cuban's comments are making me nervous that we might not get the 3/4 vote. I still think it'll happen, just not as sure of it as before. UGH hurry up June 3rd.

"Who says that irony is dead? V. Stiviano, the woman at the center of the scandal surrounding L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling - who was banned from the NBA after he was caught on tape making racist comments to Stiviano - has now herself been captured making derogatory comments about black people, TMZ reports."

...But honeeeeeeey, why do you think black people are only interested in rims?

This is yet another reason this scumbag deserves to rot in jail for a couple of years and then live in debt for the rest of her days. She is trash of the very lowest order.

I see your androgynous accusation, and raise you "questionably human".

There are those who believe aliens are among us and are plotting the downfall of the human race from within, a la "Men in Black"...

This creature has probably jumped up their rankings to "exhibit A" in the last few weeks.

Sterling agrees to drop lawsuit, allow team sale to go through:

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/sports/dona ... rs-n122921

Donald and Shelly Sterling Officially Agree to Sell Clippers

Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has officially agreed to sell the team, his lawyers announced on Wednesday.

"The NBA and Donald Sterling and Shelly Sterling have agreed to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer for $2 billion and various additional benefits. All disputes and outstanding issues have been resolved," attorney Bobby Samini said in a statement to NBC News.

The same deal was announced last week, after Shelly Sterling had her estranged husband declared mentally incapacitated, but he fought that decision.

Sterling filed a lawsuit Friday seeking $1 billion in damages from the NBA. That suit has now been dropped.

The Sterlings owned the team jointly through a trust. On Friday afternoon, the NBA, which had sought to terminate the Sterlings' ownership of the team, agreed to withdraw that effort if the Clippers are sold to Ballmer and if the couple doesn't sue the league.

Just shoot me now. I'm so over following this situation. The NBA messed up by calling off the vote to oust him as an owner. They were worried about the skeletons in the closet and now it seems like there is a much lengthier battle ahead to finalize the sale of the Clippers.

My head hurts. I can't even think about basketball until this fiasco is completely resolved.

Donald Sterling has never said a true word to anyone that wasn't to his advantage. Shame on the NBA for trusting him and not having the meeting to vote him out I go back with him to 1988 as a season ticket holder and he can never, never, NEVER be counted on to tell the truth. He's is easily one of the worst human beings on the planet. Everything he does is for himself. Even his charitable donations happen to enhance his image of himself. Anyone who trusts him in anything is a fool. And now Silver was fools. Everything he says and does is a manipulation.

Silver fucked up royally by cancelling the vote. For the first time, I'm actually worried about the sale going through. **** this waste of human life Sterling.

What the hell was Silver thinking in canceling the vote? Did he really think Sterling was just going to give up like that and not do anything? I knew from the get go that the NBA would get burned for this and here you go. Did they clearly not learn from their lesson when the 80's? Terrible move by the Commissioner. I'm very worried about the sale go through.

Donald Sterling says "I am extremely sorry for the hurtful statements I made privately"

"While this is not an excuse for the statements, like every other American, I never imagined that my (they) would be made public.

"While this is not an excuse for the statements, like every other American, I never imagined that my (they) would be made public."

""I believe that Adam Silver acted in haste by illegally ordering the forced sale of the Clippers & banning me for life from the NBA"

This is bad guys.

To be honest, the NBA cancelling the vote was a red flag to me when it happened, but I ignored it and hoped for the best. Now it's the reason we're fucked.

Did anyone really think it would go that smoothly? How many times has he changed his mind already? And people are surprised he did it again? The team will be sold, it's just a matter of time..."the sky issss..falling. The sky is falling".

Everybody is overreacting. The sale is going to happen no matter what and essentially he will be suing his trust.

Not sure what leverage that Donald Sterling has at this point. His trust has already entered into an agreement to sell the Clippers to Ballmer, and had agreed to not sue the NBA. So I'm not certain what his own separate lawsuit will accomplish, other than more publicity.

He's certainly giving Shelly all the ammunition she needs to declare him senile by changing what's left of his mind minute to minute. Kinda serves him right if she gains control of all the money, then divorces him.

The real poetic justice would be if V. Stiviano got so desperate that she had to take a minimum-wage job as his caregiver, changing his diapers as he lives out his days in one of his own slum apartment buildings.

A board of governors meeting is already scheduled for mid-July. The Clippers' future will be decided at that meeting.

But aren't you "done with the Clippers" every time we get behind by 5 points in a 1st quarter?

Yet here you still are... crying "wolf" once again.

Apparently Donald and his hack lawyers think they can "revoke" the family trust. In addition, Donnie is threatening to "expose the hypocrisy of the NBA," whatever that means.

Why can't we ever just have a normal franchise instead of this f***** freakshow? We deserve better!

If he is so together mentally,then he must know America hates him, his team hates him, the NBA hates him,heck even "V" probably hates him now that the money train has derailed. He has to know that his actions will cause everyone on the Clippers to ask to be released from their contracts and any STH with a conscious will follow the team because in effect there is no team (it will be D-league),.. making his franchise worth a little less then 2 billion,closer to a few thousand dollars.

So WTF does he have to gain by his insane (and he is insane) maneuvers, or is this just a game to him because lawsuits and trying to put one over on people is fun (and his hobby). So he is seriously a sick bitter old man...........or he really is demented and needs to be in the old farts home for billionaires.

Offseason is over. We can't sign anybody because who will want to come here with Donald around. I can't believe this POS is willing to do this to his own team. If anybody isn't concerned I don't know what to say to you. This can still blow in all our faces.

You really think FA agents are not going to consider us just because the sale might be delayed? The sale is going to be finalized. It's just a matter of when. Plus, it's not like we got much money to spend anyway. Sterling is banned for life so he doesn't have any control anyway...Players know that. You think they'd miss out of Ballmer as owner...Fat chance!

I don't believe that. Players may hate Sterling but they don't hate Rivers I believe Doc can get free agents to L.A Very Happy

If anyone isn't concerned about this, they must not have been fans for too long. This does have the potential to be classic Clippers - things are starting to look up, and then BAM! Donald gets to keep the team, franchise is ruined forever.

Exactly. Nobody ever thought he'd be totally gone by July 1st before Shelly sold, and the consensus has always been that as long as the process is underway and he's nowhere near operations, everything's cool... despite LeBron hamming it up to the peanut gallery by threatening a strike.

For all the love that was shown to Magic Johnson on this forum, the doomsayers forget that even HE was referencing an 8-10 month timeframe before this would be resolved. And does anybody really believe that Doc is going to give up $7,000,000 a year for coaching a contender with only Silver's "messenger-boy" Parsons to answer to?

As goes Doc Rivers, so goeth the players.

LOL at anyone pretending this circus now dragging on until July is somehow not a bad thing. You do realize this sale has to be done by July 15th, right? This is going to drag out for years now actually, because the NBA will probably have to go back to Plan A of voting DTS out, and then he'll just file an injunction. Good luck signing anyone or improving this team at all! Ballmer probably won't end up owning the team anymore, too, because I can't imagine he wants to wait out this mess.

Then again, these are the same people who insisted that nothing would come of the tapes to begin with and called anyone who pointed out the obvious "Chicken Littles." Well, the "Chicken Littles" were right then and will probably be right now.

My position is back to where it was in April: either Donald by some miracle no longer owns the team, or I'm done with the Clippers until he's gone. And **** the NBA for their atrocious mismanagement of this issue.

Free Agency starts on July 1st, but you can't sign players until July 10th.

That should be enough time of players to see which direction the trial seems to be heading.

Everybody and their mother knows Sterling won't be the owner after July 15th anyways so signing FA's should be a cake walk.
