Sources: Donald Sterling Has Cancer
ABC News ^ | 4/2/2014

Posted on 05/01/2014 10:09:34 PM PDT by nickcarraway

los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is battling cancer, sources have confirmed to ESPN.com.

The news was first reported by the New York Post.

The Post, citing sources, reported that the 80-year-old Sterling has been battling prostate cancer for an extended period of time.

Sterling was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million by commissioner Adam Silver earlier in the week after racist remarks he made were published by TMZ. Silver has urged the league's owners to force a sale of the Clippers, which they can do with approval from three-fourths of the league's 30 owners.

Last week, my friend, who is a very good doctor saw Sterling on TV and told me he wouldn’t be alive much longer, that he was really sick.

I wonder if the liberals and race baiters will dance on his grave, whenever that happens.

So getting bopped by 30 something whores is all part of his recovery?

Is this covered by Obamacare?

The hooker knew 1) he was battling cancer and probably doesn’t have too long to live 2) his views on black people 3) he is likely somewhat senile and easily goaded, 4) and she knew others who wanted the chance to buy a team in one of the nation’s largest basketball market.

Your doctor friend would know a lot more than me, but from what I've seen, prostate cancer is very variable in terms of how long you can live with it.

Of course, if Sterling is close to death, it adds another wrinkle to the tax consequences of all this.

It would be Ophra’s dream I think recalling a statement she had made before the release of her latest movie The Butler.

“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die,”.

I wonder if this is why the tape was released now in hopes the team would be taken from him before his death.

This from wikipedia:

"In 2007, Hayden made news for his speech at the wedding of his son Troy, where, as the New Yorker wrote, he 'said that he was especially happy about his son's union with actress Simone Bent, who is black, because, among other things, it was 'another step in a long-term goal of mine: the peaceful, nonviolent disappearance of the white race.'"

So like Oprah, he's not saying shoot all the whites. Yet.

The prostitute at the center of this so called scandal sleeps with Magic Johnson. She will get a huge fee for getting the Clippers for Johnson’s group. Liberal thought is inferior to real thought, dso much so that it is down right evil. The media sponsors breaking ethical and moral standards. Sure racism is bad but what Pravda USA has done with the whore’s revenge play is worse.
I hope the old lady seizes the Rolls, the Bently and Porche and tosses the where out on the street.

It may have also, in part, explain his racial rant because his inhibitions might have been lowered due to the drugs.

If this is true, they better hold that vote soon or they won’t have the votes.

As an owner of the team for 33 years, surely some other owners should have some feeling for his situation.

Hmmm...a PRIVATE (illegally obtained) conversation was released.

Now some guy's PRIVATE medical records are released?

Hello! HIPAA violation.

That will cost someone thousands of dollars, and may result in jail time.

Just WHO is releasing this stuff?

I don't care what a racist scum Sterling is, he's got a very good chance of suing people into oblivion.

And I hope he does.

Do you have any proof of that? As he could transmit hiv to her, I have my doubts.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. One of my favorite quotes from Confucious: "no one can humiliate you, until you first humiliate yourself."

The number of men his age that don’t have have some form of prostate cancer is pretty low.

You live long enough and your cells get all messed up.

I agree. And it’s a shame the media hasn’t applied as much journalistic zeal to real scandals such as Benghazi, the IRS and Fast & Furious as they have to this useless twaddle.

Probably not nearly as many as what is going to happen when Jane Fonda passes away. I think had Ms. Thatcher died a year or two out of office, it might have galvanized few of the haters but 25-30 years later....things change.

Well, now we know what’s really been eating at him....

Seriously, it’s not like he killed dogs for fun.

His expressed views are an anathema and repugnant for sure.

However, freedom of speech is not like”freedom from speech”.

He has the right to say offensive things and we have the right to reject those words.

But, isn’t there a certain duplicity when the players themselves use the very same ugly words?

Aren’t we going down a slippery slope to “Paula Deen” everyone and anyone?

It’s scary to think and errant word and even ones of a pathology can be used to destroy you.

People of color aren’t pure as the driven snow.

What if the tables were turned on them?

Should their careers become cannon fodder for the language and jokes they express?

I don’t believe the players would strike over the words of this jacks.

They make a ton of money, contingent on their at least playing.

If they mean to make their outrage known, in no uncertain terms, wouldn’t they “strike” until Sterling is removed by Silver???

They could make their point and hasten their intent, to have Sterling tarnished, immediately.

Then they could pledge to take the moral high ground and speak, no longer, using colorful and bigoted language as well.

Sterling is wrong to use this kind of expression but, I have come to understand his behavior was well known before his bimbo wench went scorched earth on him.

“It would be Ophra’s dream I think recalling a statement she had made before the release of her latest movie The Butler.”

If i were Sterling I would test Ophra’s (and others) to see just how big their dream is. I would offer the team up for sale starting at $1B on the stipulation of a quick sale. Find out who the serious players really are. But, regardless of how the other team owners vote Sterling will be under increasing pressure to sale because of sponsor cancellations which is a major source of revenue....

If 3/4 of the NBAs 30 owners do not vote to strip Sterling of his team, and in particular if the sale dioes NOT gow to Oprah Winfrey, the whole self proclaimed “black league” will go on strike and then leave to form their own league. The NBA will then be no more.

Racist politics swing both ways. Black nationalism is very real and is here now. America is polarized.

There may not have been any actual "bopping" in Sterling's arrangement with V-Dot. Based on his comments, it's likely that he wanted her around to make him look like what he no longer was - virile.

Sterling's wife seems more concerned with the $$$$ that the old man showered on the trollop than any "relationship" there, which I though oddly mercenary. Now it makes sense.

Isn't she the one who announced "N-words in the house! N-words in the house!" over her public address system when her father and stepmother visited her?

She's marinated in something pretty vile herself.
