It seems that the scandal involving Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling couldn’t get anymore uncomfortable or sensational but it appears to be entering that air space. While the world seems to universally hate Donald Sterling for the racist comments he made to his girlfriend, it seems not everyone is upset that the scandal is going on.
According to NBA guru Adrian Wojnarowski, one Clippers official role him that Sterling is basking in the glory of the scandal and the fact that he’s the talk of the NBA and not his players.
“But now, this [scandal] has made him relevant again. In his mind, he’s the star of the Clippers again. Everybody’s talking about him again. In his own way, he’ll revel in this. I would bet there’s no way [Sterling] will give in and sell his team. There’s no way that he’s going to do anything but stay and fight everyone until the very end to hold onto this.”
This is difficult to process as it sounds over-the-top, as though Sterling was some Bond villain laughing in his secret volcano hideout. It sounds awfully sensational but then again, who’s going to defend Donald Sterling? I’m not, you’re not and no one else in the world with a conscious will.
But it also sounds a lot like the way Sterling has been described in recent days and if true would only confirm the unbelievably disgusting human being he’s made himself out to be. Either way, the tapes were confirmed as being authentic by NBA lawyers and it’s clear that Sterling isn’t helping his cause if any of this is true.
