Donald Sterling to Sue NBA for 1.7 Billion [satire]
buzz.io ^ | April 30, 2014

Posted on 04/30/2014 9:41:17 PM PDT by Talisker

Sterling’s legal team said, “No one approves of what our client said on that recording. There’s no denying that. But it was recorded in the comfort of his own home and later obtained and publicized illegally. Not to mention, the mafia tactics the league is using to try to muscle Mr. Sterling out of his rightfully owned franchise are highly illegal and even unconstitutional. We have no doubt that our client will be exonerated when it is all said and done.”

Well well.

Larry Elder reported on his radio show tonight that Sterling most likely is using his vast fortune to dig up dirt on the other NBA owners — who doesn’t have a skeleton or two his his closet? — and then threaten to publish their dirty laundry.

Larry thinks that’s why Mark Cuban came out and said what he did.

Don’t care if he’s racist, Im rooting for him. It was a private conversation and hope to sue the NBA for more billions.

Here it comes.

Sterling is not the type to be cowed by these antics. He knows they want his franchise...and he knows who it is that wants it.

He will fight them.

Double ditto. Infringe on our right to free speech? How about privacy issues. And I want Snoopdog to take back what he said before he knew the facts but then again that’s what race baiters do...

Legal analysis from Sports Illustrated.

"2. Sterling suing may lead to pretrial discovery, which could be designed in part to embarrass other owners and NBA officials [or players] of any bigoted remarks or beliefs on their part. Keep in mind, if Sterling is ousted because of racism, he would likely demand that evidence showing that other owners and officials are also racist be shared. He would use such information to portray his penalty as unwarranted and contradicted by the conduct of those who ousted him. Sterling might request emails and other records from owners and officials that depict them in a negative light. Sterling has owned the Clippers for 33 years, which suggests that he has had many interactions -- including private conversations with league officials and owners. If there are other owners who are racist or bigoted, it stands to reason Sterling knows who they are. "

- - - - - - -

Sterling may know who said and thinks what. This thing can spin way out of control for the NBA.

Magic, Geffen, Elison, and Orca plus the NBA owners are in for a nice ride for a few years on this one. If one has a popcorn franchise, it is going to be fun to watch.

On top of all the civil stuff, there will be criminal charges to be brought to about the illegal recording and distribution of those recordings.

The best of the best, no conservatives are involved.

I totally disagree with that. I think there are millions of people that approve - some who will admit it and some who won't.

Mr. Sterling has never been one to turn the other cheek, unless it had to do with certain sneaky young girls, the type who would wear a hidden microphone as clothing accessory. This is gettin good. I was hoping that Eich of Mozilla would give the haters a street brawl, but he was as meek as a computer mouse. Sterling will not let go without a fight, and why should’nt he fight for what he earned? Yes, he has racist ideas, and no, I wouldn’t want my wife or daughter to work for him, but that’s not the case. We are still free to harbor any concept we please in our private lives, so long as that doesn’t cause injury or injustice at the workplace or in the realm of commerce.

As someone who could not care less about basketball, or the old lech Sterling, let’s hope they make this a long, ugly, drawn-out battle.

Same here. I said the other day he might fight back and if he did a lot of people were in deep poop. I am VERY glad to see he is.

Yup, he’s an arsehole, but it has to end.

Ya, ok. Here you go... We must defend the sanctity of the home. If I am in my castle, talking privately, anything short of plotting a terrorist attack is off the record, and out of bounds. Thinking people have already figured out that this is the slipperiest of slopes.

If this story is fake, I wish there was a clear disclaimer. At this moment though, I’m not seeing any indication that someone was ‘just makin stuff up’. I hope we can clarify one way or another soon. I want him to fight back, although I would understand if he’d simply had enough of dealing with stupid people who are ruled by their emotions and herding instincts.

“Let’s give them all a proctology exam and see how squeaky clean they are!”

May I suggest that the exam be done with the old Mark I endoscope, A.K.A “The Endoscope Of Justice”, and hated by the two orderlies needed to drag it up from the basement storage room.

It appears to be legit as the story goes but source could be dubious. It is under or categorized in the “Heath and Sports” section where the other articles in same section look legit.

Mark Cuban came out with his statement because he was on the receiving end of a malicious federal federal prosecution a few years ago in which he was exonerated by a jury after a very short deliberation. He has a higher regard for due process than the NBA commissioner.
