0812-ballmer-getty-02Steve Ballmer is now the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Ballmer completed the deal with Shelly Sterling for $2 billion. After several attempts by Donald to block the sale failed ... the deal closed on Tuesday.

Shelly Sterling's attorney, Pierce O'Donnell, tells TMZ, "Shelly is confident he will bring a championship to the city of L.A. in the very near future. We wish him and his family every success."

As TMZ Sports first reported, the NBA has sued Donald Sterling for his numerous attempts to sue the league and wants him to pay all their legal expenses to fight him.

Truth    

And still, no media inquires into just who set Sterling up. The media is afraid of what they might find out.

Kobe is no longer a number one player he has to learn to play with his teammates, which he showed he could not do when Shaq was their no superstars are going to go to Lakers as long as Kobe is there proof is when stars were available in free agency this year there were no serious talks with the lakers.

Poor Magic Johnson. He did all that work to set up and ruin Donald Sterling only to get outbid by someone richer than him. So sad.

harvey is racist    

YEs..you jews that run tmz keep deleting my comment and pretty much any other comment that mentioned or refers to jews. But you leave any comment that speaks about other groups like blacks or even whites. Its clear what your agenda is about.

Now like i was saying..its nice to see that a jew is running the organization, just like the last one. If anyone thinks he has a different opinion than sterling must be an idiot. The only difference is , he isnt dumb enough to express it out in public. These black dudes thinking they have it different smh.
