Clipped

Donald Sterling is a bad man who said bad things.  However, I'd love to see him sue the National Basketball Association, and here's why.

Sterling is being forced to sell his Los Angeles Clippers because he made racist comments.  While the NBA is a club, and it can discipline its members as it sees fit, the whole Sterling saga is based on an illegally recorded and private conversation.

Most law experts feel the league wins a Sterling suit, I'd love to see it happen because of the legal questions it raises.  It would be fascinating reading and viewing.

Sterling is an old and sick man.  It looked like he was going to let go of the team for $ 2 billion.  He backed out.  Now, there are indications his controlling wife will get to pull the trigger on the deal.

It's likely we'll never know what would have happened if the Clippers sale wound up in court.  Too bad.  It would have been a heck of a show.
