  1. Sterling Continues to Fight Wife’s Sale to Ballmer

    The trial to determine the L.A. Clippers’ future got uglier this week with co-owner Donald Sterling calling his estranged wife a “pig.” In May, Shelly Sterling persuaded her husband to undergo an evaluation, which revealed his early-stage Alzheimer’s, before moving to take control of the team and negotiating its $2 billion sale to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. With the trial continuing, a July 15 expiration on Ballmer’s offer and the NBA threatening to auction the team, the Clippers’ fate remains uncertain.
