Donald Sterling Relinquishes Ownership of LA Clippers… to His Estranged Wife

Donald Sterling Relinquishes Ownership of LA Clippers

Embattled and disgraced LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has agreed to relinquish ownership of the Clippers to his estranged wife of 59 years, Rochelle “Shelly” Sterling. Gossip tabloid TMZ.com reports that Shelly has agreed to sell the team — but only on her terms.

According to TMZ, Shelly is in secret negotiations with NBA officials, who are ramping up efforts to force Donald Sterling to sell the team after he was secretly recorded telling his ex-mistress, V. Stiviano, not to bring black men (specifically Magic Johnson) to his games.

From TMZ.com:

Our sources say Shelly and her lawyer, Pierce O’Donnell, have been secretly meeting with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and NBA lawyers to “resolve the dispute amicably.” We’re told Shelly realizes the NBA wants the team sold, but she has significantly more leverage and credibility with the league than Donald. Her end game is simple — she won’t object to the sale, but SHE wants to call the shots.

Our Sterling sources say Shelly is prepared to sue the NBA and she will file legal docs on Tuesday if the NBA orders an INVOLUNTARY sale. She’s down with a sale but only a voluntary one that puts her in control.

Attorney Pierce O’Donnell would not comment on this story, but did say, “Shelly Sterling’s preference has always been to find a way to resolve this dispute amicably with the NBA in a mutually satisfactory manner.”

      I know they are filthy rich, but what sense does it make to spend all that money in court battling.
      Start losing players; other players not wanting to go.
      No sponsors, they may as well get their coins. donald can be the old bigot perv he wants to be in Peace.
      and Shelly will probably be battling V for Awhile.

      The Sterling’s aren’t “estranged” either. They still live together and everything. The NBA has even said as much.

      Shelly ain’t wanna phuck that old man no more so she allowed him to have other women. He just couldn’t spend all the money on them hoes but V. Stifaljfano musta put the puzzy on him like he never felt before cause he started splurging money on her and THAT’S when the chit hit the fan.

      (CNN) — The cosmos has aligned, quite literally, for families, space geeks and insomniacs alike, as the Earth is set to intercept a new meteor shower late Friday into Saturday.

      The scientists who discovered the cosmic debris say the Camelopardalid shower could be “significant.”

      Some forecasts show 200 to 1,000 meteors an hour between 2 and 4 a.m. Eastern Time on Saturday.

      NASA says North America is in the best position to get a glimpse because the peak of the shower will appear during our nighttime, and the debris will “radiate” from a position favorable for viewing.

      “We expect these meteors to radiate from a point in Camelopardalis, also known as ‘the giraffe,’ a faint constellation near the North Star,” according to Bill Cooke, who heads NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office.

      More than just the potential for a spectacular light show, stargazers could witness a rare cosmic event.

      Amazon will be using 10,000 robots in its warehouses by the end of the year.

      CEO Jeff Bezos told investors at a shareholder meeting Wednesday that he expects to significantly increase the number of robots used to fulfill customer orders.

      There are currently about 1,000 robot workers on Amazon floors. The increase won’t change the number of actual people employed, an Amazon spokeswoman said.

      The robots are made by Kiva Systems, a company Amazon bought for $775 million two years ago.

      They are tied into a complex grid that requires months of planning and testing. But once the system is in place, it can save time and cut down on fulfillment costs.

      Kiev, Ukraine (CNN) — Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that Russia would respect the will of the Ukrainian people when the country votes in key presidential elections this weekend.

      But he said Russia would be watching closely what happened as violence continues to roil the east of the country.

      Putin, addressing an international economic forum in St. Petersburg, also warned of a “dangerous civil war” in Ukraine.

      This, he said, was the result of a “state coup” carried out “with support of the West, the United States.”

      His remarks come as the interim government in Kiev prepares to hold presidential elections Sunday to choose a successor for ousted pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych.

      While saying he would respect the Ukrainians’ choice, Putin reiterated Russia’s assertion that according to Ukraine’s Constitution, Yanukovych remains the legitimate president.

      He also questioned whether the election should be held now given the current violence in eastern regions of the country.

      Russian state media cited Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov as saying Friday that Russia would decide whether or not to recognize the polls only after the vote takes place.

      “Let’s wait for the elections first. Naturally, when Russia considers this issue (on legitimacy) we will take into account all factors,” official news agency ITAR-Tass quotes Meshkov as saying.

      :facepalm: :Unpaid gas bills

      Addressing business leaders, Putin said Russia had tried to help Ukraine in its difficult economic situation.

      But he said Ukraine must pay off the hefty arrears owed to Russian energy giant Gazprom for natural gas.

      “The risks today of delivery of the gas supply are not our fault but quite honestly, everyone understands that this is because of the transit country Ukraine, which has abused its situation,” he said.

      “We provided Ukraine with 10 billion cubic meters of gas for free,” he added. “This is not sensible; this is really stupid, and we must have limits.”

      Asked if he could work with a Ukrainian government led by Petro Poroshenko, a billionaire businessman and seasoned politician seen as a front-runner in Sunday’s election, Putin joked that he could — if Ukraine pays the $3.5 billion it owes.
