The title of a recently released ABC News article is “Donald Sterling Says NO Deal; Suit Is STILL ON” (Web-site/URL: http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory/attorney-donald-sterling-deal-suit-24065502).
“Shelly Sterling’s attorney will be in probate court Wednesday (June 11, 2014) to seek an emergency order for a hearing so a judge can confirm her authority to sell the Los Angeles Clippers, according to an individual familiar with the matter”.
“The individual was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity” because as we know DONALD STERLING CAN EXPLODE AT ANY TIME or at the very least, CONTINUE WHINING.
“Shelly Sterling brokered what would be a RECORD-BREAKING $2 BILLION deal with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to sell the team after her husband and co-owner Donald Sterling made racist comments to a girlfriend that were recorded and publicized. The NBA moved swiftly to oust him as an owner”.
“But Donald Sterling has vowed NOT to sell and is SUING the NBA for $1 billion”.
“Donald Sterling said in a statement released by his attorney (Maxwell Blecher) Tuesday (June 10, 2014) that he’s fighting for the fundamental rights of Americans against the NBA which he calls “a band of HYPOCRITES and BULLIES” and “DESPICABLE MONSTERS“. By making racist comments, it seems as if DONALD STERLING is a “bully” and “despicable monster” HIMSELF, making this our latest example of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“His statement is titled in caps and underlined: “WHY I AM FIGHTING THE NBA? THE NBA WANTS TO TAKE AWAY OUR PRIVACY RIGHTS AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH“. We have “freedom of speech” to insult someone IF they PROVOKE us. Donald Sterling’s outburst, on the other hand, was UNCONTROLLED & COMPLETELY UNPROVOKED.
“Shelly Sterling contends she is the SOLE trustee of The Sterling Family Trust, which owns the team. Donald Sterling was stripped as co-trustee after two neurologists last month (May, 2014) determined he was suffering from dementia and “mentally incapacitated” under the trust’s conditions, according to a person who is familiar with the trust and the medical evaluations, but could not speak publicly”. DONALD STERLING is STUPID here. IF he TRULY has dementia like his ex-wife says, this COULD serve as AN EXCUSE as to why he made those despicable comments. But he’s THROWING THIS DEFENSE OUT THE WINDOW.
“The aim of Sterling’s court bid is to have a judge confirm provisions of the family trust to ensure the Ballmer sale moves forward without a hitch. Donald Sterling has the right to present his side at any hearing and appeal any decision”, which means the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers could take MONTHS.
“His attorney Maxwell Blecher said a representative for Donald Sterling will likely be at any hearing, but declined to comment further Tuesday (June 10, 2014). Sterling’s attorneys have called the idea that he is mentally incapacitated “absurd“. So Donald Sterling IS NOT “mentally incapacitated”. Then HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER than to disparage black people in a league such as the NBA where 78% of the players are BLACK (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_ethnicity_in_the_NBA).
“Representatives for Shelly Sterling and (her attorney) Pierce O’Donnell declined comment”.
“On Monday (June 9, 2014), Donald Sterling pulled his support from the Ballmer deal and issued a one-page statement titled “The Team is NOT for sale“. This is the latest DEFENSIVE assertion/statement (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk).
“He instructed his attorneys to prosecute the lawsuit against the NBA that alleges the league violated his constitutional rights by relying on information from an “illegal” recording that publicized racist remarks he made to a girlfriend. It also said the league (NBA) committed a breach of contract by fining Sterling $2.5 million and that it violated antitrust laws by trying to force a sale”. “I have decided that I must FIGHT to protect MY rights. While my position MAY NOT BE POPULAR (?) I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process SHOULD NOT BE TRAMPLED“. There are THREE things to note here. First, DONALD STERLING DISPARAGED AFRICAN AMERICANS/BLACKS. THAT’S “illegal” in the 21st century. On top of this, DONALD STERLING “must protect” HIS “rights?” WOW. He DISPARAGED black NBA players. Surely, black NBA players have a “right” to DIGNITY. On top of this, Donald Sterling IS DAMN STRAIGHT “(his) position” ISN’T “popular”. HE is “trampling” on the “rights” of 78% of the NBA.
“NBA general counsel Rick Buchanan has called Donald Sterling’s lawsuit “ENTIRELY BASELESS“. BINGO. “Since it was his (now EX) wife Shelly Sterling and NOT the NBA that has entered into an agreement to sell the Clippers, Mr. Sterling is complaining about a set of facts THAT DOESN’T EVEN EXIST“. Donald Sterling is saying that the NBA FORCED HIM TO SELL the Los Angeles Clippers…which was the ABSOLUTELY CORRECT thing to do. Again, there is NO place for racists in 21st century society.
“Donald Sterling had agreed to ink the deal and drop the suit last week assuming “ALL THEIR DIFFERENCES HAD BEEN RESOLVED“, his attorneys said. But individuals close to the negotiations who weren’t authorized to speak publicly said he decided to not sign the papers after learning the NBA won’t revoke its LIFETIME ban and $2.5 million fine”. “all…differences” clearly have NOT “been resolved”. If they had, we would NO LONGER be talking about Donald Sterling’s ANTICS.
According to NBA spokesman Mike Bass, “There was NEVER a discussion involving the NBA in which we would modify Mr. Sterling’s penalty IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER. Any suggestion otherwise is COMPLETE FABRICATION“. There are TWO things to note here. First, Sterling’s penalties of a lifetime NBA ban and a $2 million fine clearly SHOULDN’T be reduced. On top of this, “fabrication”, of course, is a fundamental RESEARCH violation (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRENqPlL798).
“Donald Sterling’s comments to V. Stiviano included telling her to not bring black people to Clippers games, specifically mentioning Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. They resulted in OUTRAGE from the public and players and even prompted President Barack Obama to comment on what he called Sterling’s “INCREDIBLY OFFENSIVE RACIST statements“. People should JUSTIFIABLY be “outraged” over these DESPICABLE/DISGUSTING remarks.
Finally, “Donald Sterling said in his statement that he was “EXTREMELY SORRY (?) for the hurtful statements” he made PRIVATELY, BUT said them out of ANGER and JEALOUSY and DIDN’T INTEND for them to be public“. Again, there are TWO things to note here. “He was extremely sorry BUT”…implies that Donald Sterling is NOT “sorry” because “but” NEGATES EVERYTHING THAT PRECEDES IT (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk). On top of this, “jealousy” and “anger” are VOLATILE/DANGEROUS emotions.
To conclude, this is the latest chapter of DONALD STERLING’S ANTICS and is the STRONGEST evidence yet that he is DATING V STIVIANO because SHELLY STERLING is trying her best to SELL the Clippers while V STIVIANO is FIGHTING FOR DONALD STERLING
