Report: Banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling battling cancer

There is some more news coming out concerning Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was banned for life by the NBA this week following a leaked tape which contained racist comments that he made in a conversation with his girlfriend, although this news has nothing to do with racism, rather it’s his failing health.

According to an exclusive report from the New York Post, Sterling is currently battling cancer.

Disgraced racist Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is battling cancer — surprising those around him by beating the final buzzer for as long as he has, sources told The Post on Thursday.

A source that talked to the folks at the Post made it seem as if the battle is very harsh and the cancer may be in some dangerous stages already.

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

“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.”

Sterling was banned by the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver earlier this week after a brief investigation into the comments that landed in the hands of TMZ and were eventually leaked to the public. He was also fined the maximum $2.5 million.
