Sterling’s lawyer Max Blecher has said that Sterling will sue the NBA for $1 billion for forcing him to sell the team:

There had already been the threat of Sterling suing the NBA since he initially hired Blecher. Sterling’s lawyers prepared a 32-page report detailing the reasons they felt it was wrong to force Sterling to sell the team, even mentioning Kobe Bryant in it.

Sterling’s wife, Shelly, was put in charge of the sale since Donald could not take part in anything having to do with the team after being banned.

Everything stemmed from a recording of Sterling in which he made racist remarks to his mistress V. Stiviano, forcing NBA commissioner Adam Silver to ban him from the NBA for life.

Sterling didn’t help matters in an interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 in which he attacked Lakers legend Magic Johnson, saying he is not a good role model for young people.

The sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer still has to be approved by the other 29 NBA owners, but it is expected to be taken straight to the NBA for approval.
