It has been announced that the Los Angeles Clippers have been sold to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion. Don Sterling purchased the San Diego Clippers in 1981 for $12 million before moving them to Los Angeles in 1984 (without the permission of the league, by the way). The team had a number of suitors, including Oprah Winfrey, David Geffen, Larry Ellison, Magic Johnson (known to many for his show The Magic Hour), Grant Hill, Sean Combs, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Matt Damon (but no Ben). While a deal has been announced, the sale of the team is not finalized. The key issue that will need to be addressed before the team can be sold is the likelihood of Don Sterling objecting to the sale of the team by way of a court action. Contrary to what you may have heard, the Clippers are not owned by Sterling personally. The team is actually owned by the Sterling family trust, which would include his wife Shelley. Assuming that Don Sterling has control over the trust, he would be the one with the sole authority to sign off on the sale. However, ESPNs Ramona Shelburne has reported that Don Sterling has been declared by "medical experts" as "mentally incapacitated." As a result, his wife Shelly has obtained sole power over the trust. A court, though, will generally hold a competency hearing and make that ruling. Given the speed at which this sale has been handled, it would be a surprise to learn that such a hearing was held. Rather, it seems he may have undergone a psychological assessment. As a result, should Sterling not agree to sell the team, he could turn around and sue the league. If he is indeed not mentally incapacitated, he would argue that his wife Shelley did not have the authority to unilaterally sign off on the sale of the team. Sterling could also argue proportionality: the punishment doesnt fit the crime. While his comments were disturbing, he would argue that they were made in private, illegally recorded and nothing unlawful was said. As a result, compelling the disposition of the team is too severe a penalty. As far as the NBA, it has reasonable arguments to make to strip the Sterling family trust of its ownership stake in the Clippers. Bottom line is that the NBA Constitution provides that an owner cannot do anything that "adversely" affects the league. With sponsors, players and fans all reacting negatively to Sterlings comments, the NBA is arguing that his comments adversely impacted the leagues economics and reputation. Remember the focus is not on what Sterling said, but on the impact his comments had on the league. A fine distinction but a distinction nonetheless (and one that allows me to pay my mortgage). Ive also been asked whether Sterling could argue that he shouldnt be forced to sell the team because he was mentally incapacitated at the time he made the comments. This defence was not raised in his written submissions related to his June 3 hearing where the league will look to strip him of his ownership stake. However, that does not preclude the introduction of this defence at a later date. That being said, such a defence would be difficult to make out. The NBA Constitution doesnt care if you intended to do something, but only that is was done. The NBA Constitution provides that an owner cannot do anything that will "affect" the league "adversely". The introduction of the term "affect" and the absence of language requiring intent or a certain mental state of mind make a mental incapacity defence challenging. So even if Sterling did not have the intention of making those comments on account of cognitive impairment, the leagues rules focus on the impact or result of those comments. On the other hand, if Sterling does not oppose the sale of the team, the NBA will want him to sign a release waiving all claims against the league arising from this case. Basically, the league will want his guarantee he wont sue. Since a lawsuit could be worth billions, this release is pretty important. There has been some talk that Shelley may want to stay on as a part-owner. The NBA wants the Sterling name permanently disassociated from the team so that wont fly. The league will therefore want an assurance from Shelley that she is out. The hearing to strip the Sterling family of its ownership of the team (or as the league calls it, its NBA "membership") is scheduled for Tuesday June 3. At the hearing, the league will need 22 of 29 owners to vote to remove Sterling. Assuming the league has the votes (a pretty safe assumption), Sterling would be removed as owner immediately following the vote and Commissioner Adam Silver would take over control of the team. Its that quick. In light of the potential sale of the team to Ballmer, the league is likely to postpone the June 3 hearing if it has assurances from Sterling that he will not oppose the imminent sale the team. If, however, the indication is that Sterling is prepared to fight, then expect the hearing to proceed on June 3. Caris LeVert Jersey . John Albert Elway, 24, was booked into jail early Saturday morning after an incident near a college campus in downtown Denver, according to jail records. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Jersey .J. -- Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch deservedly draw the attention for what theyve done in getting the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl. http://www.nbanetsauthority.com/dangelo ... rsey-c-20/. Huntington doesnt want to help run the club unless Hurdle is in the dugout. The combination thats returned the franchise to respectability will remain intact for years to come. Allen Crabbe Jersey . Ricciardo made it only halfway around the Jerez track before his RB10 rolled to a stop and began spouting smoke from the back. After team mechanics tended to the car, Ricciardo went back out for a mere two trips around the circuit before calling it quits. Sean Kilpatrick Jersey . The injury will keep the Finnish forward out of the Olympics. The 29-year-old has 20 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season, his first with Tampa Bay.NEW YORK -- Masahiro Tanaka shook his head and laughed when he was asked about that bubbly Japanese pop song he warmed up to -- the one that was written just for him and hasnt been released yet. "Id appreciate it if you could wait another month," to ask about it, he said through a translator. Theres a lot about the young Japanese star thats a work in progress. Tanaka struck out 10 over seven innings of his first start at Yankee Stadium, showing off the nasty split-fingered fastball that made him the prize pitcher of the off-season after going 24-0 in Japan. But he also gave up another early homer, this time a soaring three-run shot to Jonathan Schoop in the second inning of the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 victory over New York on Wednesday night. "Thats something I need to adjust," Tanaka said of the trouble in the first couple of innings, "But its really hard to make an assessment just by two games." Nick Markakis had an RBI single and Chris Davis a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning against fill-in closer Shawn Kelley as the Orioles rallied for their second straight win. Carlos Beltran and Kelly Johnson connected against Miguel Gonzalez in the second. Alfonso Soriano tied it with a groundout in the fourth. The Orioles lined four straight hits to centre field off Kelley, pitching the ninth for the second time in place of the injured David Robertson. Ryan Flaherty and Schoop each got hits on an 0-2 pitch from Kelley (0-1) and Markakis singled in Flaherty and, after Delmon Young had his third hit of the night, Davis made it 5-3 with a sacrifice fly. I felt like they did a good job getting the barrel to some good pitches," Kelley said. "If I bounced some of those balls, maybe theyre swing and misses." Tommy Hunter gave up two hits to start the ninth and a sacrifice fly to former Oriole Brian Roberts before getting Yangervis Solarte to ground into a double play for his third save. Brian Matusz got two outs (1-0) in the eighth. "Its not always going to be pretty, you just look at the result," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. There were many empty seats on a brisk night in the Bronx despite it being New Yorks first chance to see the prrized Tanaka, who signed a seven-year, $155 million contract with the Yankees this winter -- plus a $20 million rights fee paid to his team in Japan, Ratuken.dddddddddddd Tanaka warmed up to "My Dear Fellow" by the Japanese group Momoiro Clover Z. He then received a rude welcome from Markakis. The Orioles leadoff batter grounded the first pitch of the game right back at Tanaka, hitting the right-hander on the foot before it deflected to shortstop Derek Jeter, who made the throw for the out. In similar fashion to his first big league start at Toronto, Tanaka was tagged early before settling in. He gave up three runs -- two earned -- in the first two innings Friday of a seven-inning outing in which he struck out eight. This time, Schoop hit a drive high above the left field pole in the second inning. But Tanaka gave up just three more singles -- seven hits overall -- and a walk on 101 pitches. "Again, it seemed like he got better as the night went on," manager Joe Girardi said. Gonzalez was equal to the task, allowing seven hits and three runs. He walked one and struck out three. Adam Jones came up to a smattering of boos before his first at-bat a day after he said, "They should let us have a shot to kick em with our metal spikes," about two fans who ran on the field during Tuesdays game. The fans shenanigans got a huge cheer from the crowd. Jones struck out his first two times up to hardy cheers. Jones wasnt alone. Tanaka had the Orioles flailing at his nasty split-fingered fastball all night, many bouncing in the dirt. "Were not the same hitters he faced over there. We groove, we hack," said Jones, who singled in his third at-bat off Tanaka. NOTES: Tanakas walk of Matt Wieters in the third snapped a streak of five straight games in which the Yankees starter did not allow a free pass. ... Orioles LHP Johan Santana (shoulder) will pitch BP Saturday in Sarasota, Fla. ... RHP Dylan Bundy (Tommy John surgery) threw 35 fastballs. Manager Buck Showalter said it went well. ... Up next: The Yankees begin a four-game series against Boston Thursday. Michael Pineda (1-0) makes his first Yankee Stadium start. The Orioles open a series against Toronto in Baltimore on Friday.
