Donald Sterling Vows to ‘Never’ Sell the Clippers and Calls His Wife a ‘Pig’

by July 10, 2014

Swell guy, that Donald Sterling. The disgraced LA Clippers owner put on a grotesque show in a Los Angeles courtroom, as the battle for the ownership of the franchise continues to rage. Per the LA Times:

“I will never, ever, ever sell this team,” Sterling said on the third day of a hearing over the control of the Clippers. “And, until I die, I will be suing the NBA to make them pay for the terrible violations of antitrust that they have imposed on me and my family.”


The 33-year owner of the Clippers said he intends to win $9 billion in damages in a federal lawsuit filed against the NBA.


Even by Sterling’s pugilistic standards, though, the outburst he leveled at his wife of 58 years Wednesday stood apart. After he had finished on the witness stand and after only about 20 minutes of his wife’s testimony, including comments about her husband’s faulty memory, flashes of anger and mental incapacity, she approached him in the front row of the court gallery. [… ] “Get away from me, you pig,” Donald told her. She gasped and backed away as her husband added, “Shelly, how could you lie?”
