PBT Extra: Is this the end of Donald Sterling as NBA owner?

Jul 29, 2014, 1:11 PM EDT

Donald Sterling isn’t going to go away because, well, he’s Donald Sterling. He’s old and bitter and insanely rich so he can pay attorneys to harass people for as long as he lives.

But a judge’s ruling Monday signals an end to Donald Sterling the NBA owner — the judge took extraordinary steps to ensure the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer for $2 billion can go through.

In the latest PBT Extra NBC’s Matt Stroup and I discuss the team’s Clippers’ sale and if players and Doc Rivers were serious about boycotting games (they were).

    Donald Sterling can still own a basketball team. Abe Saperstein owned the Harlem Globetrotters. DS can create the “Sterling Characters” and take them barnstorming.

    Dennis, AI, Starbury, Bynum. . . . A coach’s dream: working for Sterling and herding a cast of characters. Who deserves the job?

    You know what? I love the fact that up until this one, this guy has garnered 2 comments regarding the topic of him fading into basketball irrelevancy

    Sure it’s amazing that a guy who is as big a racist as he is has been able to actually own an NBA team

    But he’s just one more of a dying (in)breed of racists

    The younger generation simply will not tolerate it – but we’re not going to waste our time or effort with a POS old racist who simply lacks the capacity to understand how simple minded he is

    Nature will take care of him and others like him.

    Let’s let this guy fade to irrelevancy where he belongs. For a megalomaniac like him, that’s the best punishment anyways.

    PBT Extra, the better question would be “Is Donald Sterling the last of a dying breed”?
