Donald Sterling

He's Just Over It

Dropping $1 Billion Suit Against NBA

breaking news

Donald Sterling Dropping NBA LawsuitDonald Sterling's decided to go quietly after all -- he's reportedly in the process of dropping that $1 BILLION lawsuit against the NBA for forcing him to sell the L.A. Clippers.

Sterling had claimed in the lawsuit -- filed last week -- the NBA booted him based on an illegal recording that painted him as a racist. He was also fighting the $2.5 million fine the league levied against him.

But today his attorney told The Hollywood Reporter ... Sterling is letting it all go, and the suit would be dropped within a couple days. 

It's unclear what changed Sterling's mind -- or if there was any sort of financial settlement with the NBA -- but the decision clears the way for the league to approve Steve Ballmer's $2 billion purchase of the Clippers.

You put up a good fight pops. Now rest easy on your bed of billions!
And SLIVER. I hope you take note that when you go to war make sure you know how to shoot! Because this whole sabotage scheme backfired BIG TIME for the NBA. I spent more time during the playoffs hearing what restaurants mr Sterling was at, than who was in the finals! Says a lot about priorites.
Owners? Change the whole DAMN board! Start fresh.

Too bad he's too old to enjoy much of life - and he can't take it with him. I think he's basically an unhappy man, and I say it's karma. Sterling to V on that tape, "you can never make me happy..." IMO, he sounded like nothing he knew of would make him happy. Tsk tsk

He bought the Clippers for $12m - getting $2B is a HUGE payday. Someone did the math for him that his 'suit' was stupid and that's why he agrees to walk away.

Can we get of this low life and stop giving him the limelight he so craves...? Please, no more stories on hi and Ms. V. Enough.
