Well, well, well…there is justice after all. According to TMZ Sports, Donald Sterling is no longer the controlling owner of the Los Angeles Clippers! Sterling just surrendered control to his estranged wife, Shelly Sterling and she is now secretly negotiating with the NBA to sell the team. However, she will only sell on “HER TERMS”.
Sources close to the Clippers organization tell TMZ that Donald made the decision because he saw the handwriting on the wall as long as he remained in control, the NBA would order an involuntary sale of the team.
Sources are telling TMZ that Shelly and her lawyer, Pierce O’Donnell, have been secretly meeting with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and NBA lawyers to,
“resolve the dispute amicably.”
TMZ reports that while Shelly realizes the NBA wants the team sold, she has significantly more leverage and credibility with the league than does Donald and her…

CNN’s Don Lemon landed an exclusive interview with, Maseratiet, a self-described friend of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Maseratiet is also Sterlings’s former escort provider. Yes, you read that correctly. Seems as if you buy black women you can’t possibly be racist.
“How’d I meet him? That’s a good question,” Maseratimet said when pressed. After noting that Sterling “likes to have fun” and enjoys being around women, Maseratimet finally confessed that he ran an escort service in Las Vegas that Sterling patronized.
“He didn’t show no sign of racist to me,” Maseratimet said. “He seemed, you know, straight cool.” When prodded by Lemon, Maseratimet said that Sterling did prefer “light skinned” women of color.
Maseratimet confessed that he was “upset” when he heard the tapes and reached out to Sterling for clarification. He added that he recorded those conversations with Sterling and confessed that he is behind the…

And he said Sunday that NBA players believe nobody in Sterling’s family should be able to own the Los Angeles Clippers if he’s gone.
Sterling has been banned for life for making racist comments and Commissioner Adam Silver has urged owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise. But Silver said no decisions had been made about the rest of Sterling’s family.
Shelly Sterling, Sterling’s estranged wife, said she intends to keep her 50 percent of the franchise.
“As players, we want what’s right and we don’t feel like no one in his family should be able to own the team,” James said after the Miami Heat practiced for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Brooklyn.
But Shelly Sterling told ABC News’ Barbara Walters that she doesn’t believe…

I bet you will, Mrs. Sterling! But you can’t un-ring a bell. You are guilty by association.
Shelly Sterling spoke to Barbara Walters, and ABC News posted a short story with excerpts from the conversation Sunday.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Donald Sterling for making racist comments and urged owners to force Sterling to sell the team.
Sunday evening, the NBA’s Mike Bass issued a statement that said, “Under the NBA constitution, if a controlling owner’s interest is terminated by a three-fourths vote, all other team owners’ interests are automatically terminated as well. It doesn’t matter whether the owners are related as is the case here. These are the rules to which all NBA owners agreed to as a condition of owning their team.”
Pierce O’Donnell, Shelly Sterling’s attorney…

Congratulations, Clippers! What a great win!
Leading the way was a player not known for coming up big in the clutch.
Darren Collison scored eight of his 18 points in the final 2:58, rallying the Clippers past the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on Sunday to tie the Western Conference semifinal series 2-2.
“Even though we didn’t play well throughout the game, we were able to get a win,” Collison said. “That feels more impressive than anything we did.”
Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka’s tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the final 1:23.
“It was a good look,” Westbrook said. “Just didn’t go in.”
Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 25 points, making 9 of 11 free throws. Jamal…
