Donald Sterling

I'VE GOT MY OWN DOC

... He Thinks My Brain Works Fine

6/23/2014 12:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Sterling HealthDonald Sterling says he's tracked down a doctor who thinks his mind is in perfect working order -- and he wants the doc to testify during the trial ... or else he'll suffer "grave" injury.

Sterling just filed new court docs in his legal war with his estranged wife Shelly -- begging the judge to postpone the start of the Clippers trial so he can bring in a neurologist who will tell the judge Donald is NOT mentally incapacitated.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Donald says Dr. Jeffrey Cummings -- Director of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health -- will vouch for him ... but will be out of town and unable to testify in court until after July 20th.

Sterling says Shelly's assertion that the Clippers deal must close by July 15th (the end of Steve Ballmer's escape clause) ... is complete B.S.

Sterling says the only deadline that should matter to the court is September 15th -- the day the NBA says it will seize the team and sell it in a public auction if a deal isn't closed.

Donald claims if he is not allowed to use Dr. Cummings to prove his mental competency ... he will risk "grave and irreparable injury insofar as his defense will be impaired and his assets will be subject to distribution without his consent."

A judge has yet to rule.

His doctor thinks his brain works fine? Yeah, only when he has his checkbook out.

This decision can set up open season for any rich aging person. Shelly's self serving interest should be on trial.

If there was no do***ented issue with his mental state before this whole fiasco unfolded then chances he doesn't have mental issues. This stuff doesn't happen over night or for her convenient purpose.

Find out if Donald Sterling is on any of the statin medicines and if so, have him stop taking this type of medication. The next day? No Alzheimers or Mild Cognitive Impairment. Don't take my word for it, check out the Mayo Clinic or any other reputable medical website.

As to individual doctors, be aware that many doctors have investments in the statins.

What incredible people this story is about! The Sterlings have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana skin yet they want more and more and more money. For what?

Did their sofa wear out and they don't have the money to replace it?

Tears are not coming to my eyes in case you're wondering.
