Donald Sterling can’t seem to make up his mind about how he feels in the wake of an agreement being reached to sell his team. After sterling allegedly gave his wife the go-ahead to negotiate a sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, his lawyer came out and said Sterling will “fight to the bloody end” to keep the team. Less than a week later, Sterling says it’s “all good.”
Fred Roggin of NBC4 in Los Angeles caught up with Sterling at a charity event Tuesday night and asked him how he felt about losing the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. The 80-year-old is suddenly fine with it.
“I’m OK, I’m OK,” Sterling said. “Is the NBA OK? I’m not sure about that. Is (NBA Commissioner) Adam Silver OK? I’m sure he’s OK.”
Roggin then asked if it’s now time to move on with his life, and Sterling said “move on.”
Sterling’a obviously not all there. That’s not an excuse for the despicable remarks he made on the audio recording that landed him in this mess, but there’s no denying he’s starting to slip in his old age. Maybe he’s just at peace with making a profit of about $1.87 billion on his team and suing the NBA for another $1 billion. Or maybe he literally can’t keep track of his own thoughts.
