Donald Sterling Reportedly Preparing to FIGHT to Keep Clippers

Hmmm!! Can you really force someone to sell what he owns?  That question will soon be answered because Donald Sterling is reportedly ready to fight to keep his stake in the Clippers.

Donald Sterling will sue the league if the other 29 owners vote to force him to sell.

The wheels are in motion to remove Sterling, a process that the executive said Wednesday night would lead to a lawsuit by the disgraced owner, possibly tying up the future of the team for years.

“He is not going to sell the team,” the executive said.

Members of the owners’ advisory and finance committee include Minnesota owner Glen Taylor, who chairs the committee, Miami’s Micky Arison, the Lakers’ Jeanie Buss, Oklahoma City’s Clay Bennett, New York’s James Dolan, Boston’s Wyc Grousbeck, San Antonio’s Peter Holt, Phoenix’s Robert Sarver, Indiana’s Herb Simon, and Toronto’s Larry Tanenbaum. The committee plans to hold a meeting by conference call Thursday to discuss the next steps in forcing Sterling to sell the team he has owned for 33 years. Seventy-five percent of the league’s 29 other teams would have to vote in favor of such a move.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Sterling’s recording was “a painful moment for all members of the NBA family,” and less than 24 hours later, steps were being taken to remove Sterling from the NBA permanently.

As the Daily News reported Wednesday, if Sterling sues, he would likely base his case on language in the NBA constitution that deals with conduct that constitutes “willful acts,” a term that can be difficult to interpret and enforce. Generally those acts include criminal behavior, financial instability or gambling or fixing games.

“He’ll sue and it’ll take years to settle,” said the source close to Sterling.

 

“I would be surprised if this was not a unanimous vote,” Ranadive said during an ESPN Radio interview. “The owners are amazing people — they’re color-blind — and I fully expect a unanimous vote.”

Players across the league had planned potential boycotts of playoff games had Silver not issued such a definitive punishment as the one leveled against Sterling. Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson maintained that it was a realistic option before his team played the Clippers in Game 5.

“Luckily it didn’t come to that,” said Chris Paul, the Clippers point guard and the National Basketball Players Association president.

Meanwhile, some of everyone wants to buy the team.  Dr. Dre, Oprah, Didd, Magic and more
