We told you guys earlier this week that just when it seems like this story can get no wilder…it up and does! It is being reported by the New York Post, that the alleged racist owner of the LA Clippers is battling cancer! Yes 80 year old Donald Sterling is said to have been dealing with cancer for a number of years now!
So, does that make his recent lifetime ban seem better or worse? We’re not really sure…but we digress!
Sources tell the Post,
“They thought he would die two years ago. People have been predicting his imminent demise. I’m sure he has the best . . . drugs money can buy. He can do anything to keep himself alive.”
The source said some of the medication Sterling has been taking is responsible for the puffy appearance of his face.
Sterling refused to pay for prostate-cancer surgery a decade ago for then-Clippers assistant coach Kim Hughes. Isn’t it ironic…don’t ya think?!
“I contacted the Clippers about medical coverage and they said the surgery wouldn’t be covered. They said if they did it for one person, they’d have to do it for everybody else.”
Four Clippers players chipped in to cover the $70,000 cost.
While the world awaits the decision of the other NBA owners about whether or not they will vote to force Sterling to sell the Clippers, we can’t help but wonder if this will gain sympathy points with anyone else for Sterling? Or will he be able to keep it in the family and sell his team to his estranged wife or daughter? We guess we will all just have to wait and see.
