I guess we will see how serious the players were about those threats of not playing if the Sterlings were still involved with the franchise.
At this point it looks like Donald is going to keep suing the NBA forever and in turn block any sale of the team. Here is what Adam Silver had to say.
“I can’t say with certainty because it’s in the hands of the probate court right now, and Donald is in the process of suing us for lots of money and we’re defending ourselves against those lawsuits,” Silver said.
“It’s difficult to say anything with certainty in a situation like this,” Silver said. “I can say with certainty that we are doing everything in our power to move Donald out as an owner in the NBA.”
The NBA should have just took over the team, but they were greedy and didn’t want to get their hands dirty, so they let Shelly Sterling handle the sale.
Now, it is biting them in the back.
