Remember when NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life? Yeah, about that. Sterling has hired high-priced antitrust lawyer Maxwell Blecher and is vowing to fight the NBA, claiming that he has done nothing wrong.
In Sterling’s defense, I’m sure he believes that.
He’s been a terrible human being for decades. He’s done far worse things than telling his mistress/personal assistant that he didn’t want her to bring black people to basketball games. Donald Sterling is a slum lord who routinely discriminated against people by refusing to rent apartments to people because of the color of their skin. Housing discrimination is far worse than getting angry at your skeevy mistress because she posted a photo of herself on Instagram standing with Magic Johnson.
Donald Sterling is a billionaire, and he’s a lawyer. As Jesus once said, it’s easier to get a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is to get a billionaire lawyer to do something they don’t want to do.
It seems that Donald Sterling doesn’t want to go away quietly.
