Shelly Sterling is Los Angeles Clippers No. 1 fan

On Tuesday afternoon, the sale of the Los Angeles Clippesr was finalized and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer sent $2 billion to the Sterling family after the sale closed.

However, Shelly Sterling isn’t completely gone from the team.

As part of the deal to buy the Clippers, Ballmer put in a clause that allows Sterling to become “owner emeritus” of the team.

To make matters even more hilarious, Sterling has a very comical name.

So, what should you call Sterling when you see her walking down the street? The Los Angeles Clippers’ No. 1 family.

I am serious.

So not only did the Sterling fan get a huge haul for the sale of the Clippers, the fact that Sterling can still come around and has titles with the go, but allowing Sterling to remain involved with the team with official titles — regardless of how ridiculous they must be — seems to be something that should come to an end soon.
