The latest chapter of the ongoing saga involving the Los Angeles Clippers and its embattled owner, Donald Sterling, has turned a new page. According to Sterling’s attorney, he will be withdrawing a $1 billion lawsuit against the league and will not pursue any further legal action regarding the NBA’s attempt to “force” him to sell the franchise. He is also allegedly agreeable to the deal signed by his estranged wife Shelley Sterling and former Microsoft C.E.O. Steve Ballmer to sell the team for $2 billion. He says he is ready “to move on.”
Donald Sterling was interviewed at a dinner for a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles and this is what he said:
“I feel fabulous, I feel very good,” Sterling told NBC4 on Tuesday night when asked how he felt about his wife, Shelly, selling the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. “Everything is just the way it should be, really. It may have worked out differently, but it’s good. It’s all good.
The sale of the team to Ballmer is expected to go through without any further hindrances.
