Donald Sterling's Wife Says She's Keeping The Los Angeles Clippers, Clippers' Head Coach Responds

(AllHipHop News) The Sterling family may make the NBA’s attempted forced sale of the Los Angeles Clippers difficult, with or without Donald Sterling as the owner. This past Wednesday, Donald Sterling’s estranged wife Shelly Sterling announced she plans to maintain ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers and the Clippers’ head coach Doc Rivers responded.

The Los Angeles Clippers are owned by a family trust and Shelly Sterling has been a co-owner of the team since Donald Sterling purchased the team in 1981. In a statement sent to ESPN, Mrs. Sterling states that she will attempt to retain ownership of the team if the NBA decides to force the sale:

Commissioner Silver made it clear, that when he announced sanctions against Donald, that the NBA was taking no action against me or my family

Mrs. Sterling announced her intentions of maintaing team ownership a day after Clippers President Andy Roeser took an indefinite leave of absence. Roeser and Mrs. Sterling are the only two alternate governors of the Los Angeles Clippers. Last saturday, the NBA stated they plan to appoint a CEO for the Clippers to oversee day-to-day operations.

A day after Mrs. Sterling’s statements to ESPN, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers stated that it would be a “very hard situation” if Sheryl Sterling retained ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers:

I don’t even want to comment on it because I don’t know yet. I think it would be a very hard situation, I’ll say that much. I think it would be very difficult. I guarantee you every person wouldn’t be on board with it. Whether I would or not, I’m not going to say, I just know that would be a very difficult situation for everybody.

Mrs. Sterling’s lawyer Pierce O’Donnell informed ESPN that not only does Mrs. Sterling intend to fight any forced sale of the Clippers by the NBA but also has legal ground to do so:

Despite all of the furor during the past week, Mrs. Sterling still has property rights. She has worked tirelessly over the years to build up a franchise that was once a cellar dweller into a sports powerhouse. She has the same right as anyone else in America to enjoy and control the fruits of those labors, and that includes deciding whether to keep or sell her 50 percent interest in the team.

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    wait wait wait………….i thought “we won”???? hahahahahaha
    silly knee grows, the only thing these devils know is ACTION……….not rhetoric.
    the Clippers (and the black race as a whole) dropped the ball, this was a cross road moment to stand up…………..and we didnt, and since “they” know we all bark and no bite “they” feel comfortable doing whatever they want

    damn i miss the late 80s early 90s

    • Papi Peligro

      All they have to do is not schedule the team for any games.
      They would take a bigger L by not selling. Just cause you own a team doesn’t allow you access to the league.

      • Calico Joe

        Exactly, just kick them out of the NBA completely. Then she would have no choice but to sell the team or lose a ridiculous amout of money trying to hold on to it.

    i called it smh


    She look like a corpse

  • STFUUIgnants

    Thats one ugly —-! Mrs. Darth Sidious

  • imma darkboy

    only thing left to do is have the players either request trades and buyouts or sit down and not play…if they do play TAAAAAAAAAANK

    It’s amazing how all of a sudden they fuckin care about a team they were just stringin along for the past 20-30 years

  • Papi Peligro

    If they fight it the league should just not schedule them any games. Suspend all of their players contracts. Then form a new team in like Seattle. Call it a night. But at the end of the day the league still has power.

  • Arrie Mental Woodard

    what has she done for the past ten years????

  • F.U.

    There is a video of her posing as an inspector in one of those apartments she owns and she evicted several residents, turned off utilities and even shut down the elevators to prevent the handicapped from entering their homes. This bitch is racist just like her husband and she’s delusional if she thinks they’re going to allow her to run that team!

    Let them keep the team but release all the players. Get a new franchise in Seattle or Vancouver or Montreal and have the current roster go to that team. The only players that will sign with Sterling’s team is D-Leaguers, nazis and jews. Let his team go bankrupt then he will sell. Like most jews they are all about the money. Yeah I’m a racist too Sterling.
