Dr. Dre

I WANT TO BUY THE CLIPPERS

EXCLUSIVE

Dr Dre Buying Clippers
Clippers with Attitudes?? 

Dr. Dre tells TMZ Sports ... he's "absolutely" interested in buying the L.A. Clippers when the NBA forces Donald Sterling to sell the team ... and he seems very serious about it.

"I'm thinking about it ... yes," Dre told us on his way in to Boa Steakhouse in L.A. last night. 

It's not like he couldn't afford it ... Forbes just released its list of wealthiest hip hop moguls and Dre clocked in at #2, with a reported net worth of $550 million.

He's not the only one who's expressed interested ... billionaire developer Rick Caruso says he's also interested ... same with Diddy and Rick Ross. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

What gets me is how most African Americans say what Sterling says is wrong but in the music and movies they say nasty thing about whites and other minorities, when are these Afriacn American Celeberties going to be accounted for their actions. If you walk in a African American neighborhood a white or other minorities will be raped, attacked, murdered and never seen again. Come on you have to say most African Americans are racist! So what is going to be done about this?

This guy might be rich but he isn't THAT rich.


This team will fetch upwards of 750 million easy.


I can't believe eh thinks for a second that he would get the team for the same 6 million Sterling paid originally.

yea we'll see, when it's time to get the shekels together, we'll see who coughs up the dough.....

the team will go for north of 750m and Sterling will probably not sell the team (nothing is banning his family from current ownership). It's amazing how so many parties are now interested in buying a basketball team. Hey people, nothing is preventing you from making offers for other NBA teams currently. Everything has a price.

Everyone is just out for media whoring at this point. the whole thing is sickening.

So he wants to replace a racist with another racist. This Andre person is just as much a racist as Sterling. Neither should be rewarded for being a racist.

Dre , Diddy and Rick Ross should join together to bid on the team. I have Magic and his group who owns the Dodgers as the most likely winner to get the team.
