Disgraced LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Battling Cancer

Disgraced LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Battling Cancer

This has not been Donald Sterling’s year. The disgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner was banned from the NBA for life this week after his racist rants were recorded and sold to gossip tabloid TMZ.com.

And now comes word that the billionaire octogenarian has been battling prostate cancer for years.

A friend of Sterling’s revealed one of the reasons the NBA may not have acted earlier to sever their ties with him.

“They thought he would die two years ago,” said the source.

“People have been predicting his imminent demise. I’m sure he has the best .?.?. drugs money can buy,” said the source, who works closely with pro sports teams. “He can do anything to keep himself alive.”

From The NY Post:

“People have been predicting his imminent demise. I’m sure he has the best .?.?. drugs money can buy,” said the source, who works closely with pro sports teams. “He can do anything to keep himself alive.”

The source said some of the medication Sterling has been taking is responsible for the puffy appearance of his face.
Another source said Sterling, 80, was specifically suffering from prostate cancer.

In an ironic twist, Sterling refused to pay for prostate-cancer surgery a decade ago for then-Clippers assistant coach Kim Hughes.
“I contacted the Clippers about medical coverage and they said the surgery wouldn’t be covered,” Hughes told The Journal Times of Racine, Wis., in 2011.

“They said if they did it for one person, they’d have to do it for everybody else.”
Four Clippers players chipped in to cover the $70,000 cost.

In related news, the president of the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP tendered his resignation yesterday after revealing he “ignored” Sterling’s racism for years because the billionaire donated millions of dollars to the NAACP.

      I know he’s secretly hoping the Clippers lose game 7 so this story can fade into the background until next season.

    • kamadiva

      This story is going to run for another week…until something else bigger happens…never mind you the Asian community was just delivered another blow when a train hit another and 117 people were injuried in South Korea.

    • kamadiva

      SandraRose: Did you hear that Superhead and V.Hoe are friends and she knew that Sterling tapes were going to be released? So Superhead allegedly called Mr. Magic Johnson to let him know about the tapes so that he can get his PR team together? Blank stare.
