They've taken the next step in the process and formally charged him. Has until May 27th to respond. It's nice to see dates scheduled on this whole mess.

As long as the team is formally out of his hands by July 1st, I expect Doc to stay and the players to follow suit.

Greatest Offseason Acquisition -- Donald T Sterling... The dreaded owner that has plagued our team for years. Guys! I believe if Donald is gone his curse will be lifted off of us and things like free agents and officiating will be more our way

Don't think "acquisition" is the right word, LOL.

What if Sterling died? Would that speed up or derail the process?

You're not planning something are you? Cos I just need to say right now, much as we all love the Clips it's just not worth it. Wink

I think Clipper Kyle meant to say best thing ever will be the "divestiture" of DTS

All and all this truly could be the moment where we become recognized as a true organization not just a basketball team owned by a racist slumlord.

If he croaks before they vote, the team would automatically be under the control of Shelly Sterling as his widow. Since she hasn't done anything wrong (at least, not regarding this incident) it would probably be harder to take the franchise away from her than it will be to take it away from him. I guess they could just not approve her as a governor, but there's nothing to say she couldn't just leave Parsons in place to make all the decisions while she just took the profits. Hard to see how the NBA could fight that seeing as how it was they who installed him.

In short, the absolute worst thing Donald could do to the Clippers is to snuff it in the next month or so... so knowing him, that's probably what he'll do.
