owner of the LA Clippers.
You'll remember that previous owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life and fined $2.5 million after he was outed as a horribly racist human being when a series of recordings were made public via TMZ
. Despite Donald Sterling's legal efforts to block the sale, the league's Board of Governors decided transferring ownership from the Sterlings (Shelly Sterling wound up in control of the Clippers) to the tune of $2 billion
was best for everyone involved.
