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.

If stilgliano's claim is true.. And Sterling had asked her to tape him due to his advanced age and memory, etc. I'd have to question his mental health. The NBA sure is quick to crucify a possible mentally challenged person.

I thought being 82 years old is what made his face look like that. Anyway, knowing that he has prostate cancer probably means he hasn't been boning his girlfriend. I doubt she's been blowing him and letting him cream her tonsils with that cancerous concoction. Kim Kardarshian might let him impregnate her tonsils though, for a price, no?

If this is true... Could explain a lot. Btw, bravo to Griffin for showing some compassion.
