Can't he be called a hostile witness and limit him to yes or no questions?

Being a lawyer he's smart enough to know how far he can push back.

Don't know how to post tweets but my favorite so far is Donald talking about the lady doctor Spatzer..."She was intoxicated!! You know it and I know it!!"

..and sue the NBA for 9 billion and get tv rights for 3 billion,so therfore by him selling the team and suing he will make 14 billion with his lawsuit,or not selling he makes 3 billion on tV.

billionaires must get the really good weed to smoke.

Do you guys know how much of an idiot Donald Sterling is? He plans to sue the NBA for about 9 billion right? Did he forget Shelly indemnified any suits against the NBA from Donald? So He'd be essentially suing himself so X amount of money lol

His valuation of the upcoming TV rights negotiations are a perfect example of how out of touch he is.

The lakers secured a $3,000,000,000 deal. Now let's put aside that they are vastly more profitable, which means that they can - if they want to - go deep into luxury tax to put out a more successful team. And let's also put aside that they have a much larger fan base, and more viewers means more advertising revenue for the network which holds their broadcasting rights.

Let's just assume that a couple of years of the Clippers being the better team and the star power of Blake and CP3 means that the new Clippers deal WOULD be worth the same $3,000,000,000... Donald HIMSELF pissed in that well with the very comments that began this whole thing.

He may even be right that the new contract COULD have been worth that much 3 months ago, but nobody in their right mind is paying that kind of money for a team whose sponsors are leaving in droves when they can pay the same for the lakers - whose management, while arguably inept, is not politically and commercially toxic. If tomorrow, Jimmy Buss said the kind of stuff Donald has been spouting, Time-Warner would pull out faster than an unmarried Catholic.

The only way a new TV deal even gets made at this point is if Donald is out of the picture... unless the Klan gets their own TV station.

Wouldn't surprise me if it was a request from Donald's attorneys after yesterday's debacle, but once again they're 2 steps behind the game... he already testified.

Talk about closing the stable door after the crazy-horse has bolted.

Still, I'll give a rep to anyone who can dig up a trial transcript when this is all public record.

Every day the love for DTS grows in the city of Los Angeles.

When is the date our guys will start asking for their contracts to be voided?

Sounds like he's acting out the angle of "I put my trust in her, and she betrayed me". Hopefully the jury doesn't buy it.

There's no jury. It's a probate case. Just a judge.

Lol, this guy needs a reality TV show so bad.

Who can tell me with a straight face that they wouldn't watch Keeping Up With The Sterlings.

I have to say...if I was a player or a coach or somehow affiliated with the team, I couldn't work there any more if he isn't removed swiftly. He is a vile person.

That's a bummer, but they can still extend the option by 30 days as long as Shelly, Ballmer and the league mutually agree to do so.

So what's going to happen now? What's the next move? What's going to happen in July 15?

Ah- got it. So it's all up to one judge- I wonder if appeals can be filed to further drag things out, etc.

Only if he can find grounds for an appeal. New evidence of Shelly doing anything improper or anything awry in the trial proceedings. Unlikely, IMO.

Playing devi'ls advocate here:

Say I own an A &W root beer franchise. I do something wrong (like really serving Shasta) so the franchise tells me I have lost my franchise so either I sell it or they will for me. Since I really don't want to get rid of it at all I come up with a plan. I tell my assistant manager to go our and negotiate a sale of my franchise for me and see what she can get. So she takes off to find me a great price,therefore I get to stall in the sale while I try to hatch a plan to keep my store. One day later my assistant comes to me and says she sold the store. I never told her to sell anything, I told her to find out what she could get by negotiations. Does she have the right to sell my team,errrr store when all I did was tell her to negotiate a sale, not actually make one?

Somebody go to the Wang dudes tweets and post them (I don't know how),they sort of match my above story for today.

I suspect Don wins this round. I suspect it will be up to the NBA to get rid of him,something they could have had done but the effed up.

THEY NEED TO SELL!

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi 2 minutes ago

Shelly said banks want to revoke their $500 million in loans. Trust can't afford that. They would have to sell off property to do that.

Does the manager have a 50% vested interest in the franchise? Shelly does. Did the franchise owner go public with him saying he was going to sell before the franchise would be put to vote? Donald went public about selling the team. Did the franchise owner write up a clause stating that if he were mentally unstable, and it could be proven, the acting assistant could take over the franchise and do what's best for said franchise, including the sale of it? Donald did and Shelly did. The court is there to prove Shelly did everything according to the trust.
