Lawyer says Clippers sale could miss deadline



By LINDA DEUTSCH

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A lawyer for the man offering to buy the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion says Donald Sterling's stalling tactics are threatening to doom the sale by pushing it past a contractual deadline.

At a hearing Friday to set parameters for the rest of a probate trial, Adam Streisand implored the judge to make a swift decision when hearings conclude July 28.

He says the final deadline to close the deal with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was extended by a month, but "the deal ends on Aug. 15."

In spite of the looming deadline, Sterling's attorney, Gary Ruttenberg, asked to further delay proceedings, insisting the case "has been railroaded on a bullet train."

Outside court, Streisand said that Sterling's refusal to sell the team is "a suicide mission by a madman."

Silver is the new kid on the block and he's scared to piss off all the racist trying to crucify Sterling. If he had balls at all he would state the truth and say that Sterling made comments about the behavior of his mistress that were private. He called nobody anything that was racist, he basically told her that he is provideing her a very good life and she should not make him look like a fool even if he is one.

I hope Sterling runs the NBA around in circles; the hypocrites should have their privacy splashed about in the tabloids in as much enthusiasm as the Clipper players blatantly enjoyed sticking Sterling's money in their pockets! They never cried foul! May the curse of the Clippers be a defeated league for centuries to come!

Leave the old guy alone. It's his team and in my view he did nothing "IN PUBLIC" to justify what MLB and his wife are trying to do.
He made a free speech statement in the privacy of his home. The little tramp had a hissy fit and tried to ruin him. What a dope........she tried to kill the goose that laid golden eggs for her.

You sound a little bigoted yourself. How silly are you to think that anybody that has a lot of money doesn't deserve it. How about those high paid black basketball players? I think they earn their salaries because people are willing to pay to watch them play. Why don't you?
