Donald Sterling

Battling Cancer

Donald Sterling CancerDisgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been battling cancer for several years, TMZ has confirmed.

Sterling's cancer medication, believed to be for prostate cancer, is what has caused his face to look puffy in recent years, says the New York Post. One source told the paper, "They thought he would die two years ago."

Clippers players were unaware of Sterling's alleged condition. Blake Griffin told reporters after last night's loss to the Golden State Warriors, "If that is true, my thoughts and prayers are with him. Nobody deserves to go through something like that."

Earlier this week, Sterling was banned for life by the NBA and fined $2.5 million for his racist remarks.

Just My Opinion    

Banning an 80 year old for life, was pretty stupid. More stupid than what he said to his then gf out of being jealous of her bringing other men to the game.

Tell me, can people act any more ignorant over what an 80 year old man stupidly said? The dude jealously said to his then gf..don't bring no black people to his game.

THE DUDE DID NOT USE THE N WORD!!!

Come on now. We all know that when men get that age, they go back to acting younger, and want to act like they can still get 'keep" young women. Some even say that they go back to acting like a kid again. THIS ISN'T A CASE OF A RACIST REMARK..IT IS A CASE OF JEALOUSY!!! Just because this dude has money doesn't stop the dude from being jealous over other men.

Disgraced?

The man is a philanthropist who was blackmailed by his mistriss. Who he had given millions.

The disgraceful POStus made an ignorant rant about it. Sterling wasnt advertising ignorance in a private conversation, but Obama bit hard and advertised to the world.

And then a disgraced gossip site throws gas on the fire and gets a lot of racial animosity going (win?)..

Explain to us how TMZ can sleep at night. in ..3..2...1..GO!

I don't believe it, sounds like a PR plan to try and gain sympathy for someone so vile. No human being should suffer any illness but this individual is so vile I have to leave it to God to watch over those who are inflicted.

It's these kinds of reports that bring society's finest to the forefront. The guy told the ho he was supporting to not be photographed with black guys or bring them to games. For that he should die a slow, painful death from cancer?
