Sources connected with the Sterling family tell TMZ ... the trust agreement that governs the family's ownership of the team provides if 2 qualified doctors determine either Donald or Shelly shows "an inability to conduct business affairs in a reasonable and normal manner" ... they will then be stripped of control over the team.
We're told earlier this month Donald agreed to an examination by 2 prominent neurologists. He underwent extensive tests, including a CT and PET scan. We're told both doctors diagnosed Donald with Alzheimer's and concluded he may have had the disease for as long as 5 years. The doctors both concluded he did not have the ability to conduct the business of the team.

That will keep CNN occupied all weekend.
I thought the ADA protected the infirmed from being stripped of property and rights...
But “they” will stick pick on the guy, ridicule him, “hate” him
Donald Sterling has Alzheimer’s Donald Sterling has Alzheimer’s
Apparrently so does the headline editor. Apparrently so does the headline editor.
I hear about it on TMZ
I hear whole tapes he made with his mistress
And Anderson Vandberlit interview he didn’t seem right
I’d be suspicious here. Are there any financial incentives for the trustees to find doctors who will “find” Mr. Sterling to be incapacitated? I call BS and if this were my family, I’d consider a lawsuit for elder abuse.
RE: King of moot now that Ballmer is buying the Spurs.
I didn’t know the Spurs were for sale... :)
I once owned a basketball team?
You can say that again You can say that again
“an inability to conduct business affairs in a reasonable and normal manner”
That’s true with most people I work with.
The first sign of Alzheimer’s is repeating yourself.
Although you may have done that on purpose.
In that case, that’s funny right there.
Mr. Sterling can cash out. These are his golden years. Meanwhile, the new owner, Steve Ballmer, wasn’t able to destroy Microsoft, despite his best efforts. Let’s see how he does with a basketball team. /S
Maybe they forgot they posted it the first time, so they posted it again.
So it sounds like the immaculate and revered NBA may have jumped the gun and bullied a sick old man. I would love to see the sale of the team get tangled up in court for years. Just because.
My mother's doctor told us that the only definitive test for Alzheimer's is a brain biopsy.
the actual title:
Donald Sterling Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s
I think your mother’s doctor is correct. I’ve had the occasion of taking depositions of many doctors that work with older patients. The most trained will confirm what your mom’s doctor says. A Doc worth his/her salt will say that since Alzheimer’s can’t be certain until after death, the proper designation before death is Alzheimer’s Type Dementia.
I think the NBA is opening a can of worms it doesn’t want to be in. I read an article in legal publications weeks ago that stated Sterling had retained 12-18 private investigators to dig into the lives/history/biases of other owners. If it bore fruit, Owners would be reluctant to take his property away. Especially since their own dirty laundry would be exposed.
Having put similar language in trusts, I can assure you that Sterling would still be able to institute legal actions to delay any sale.
