Report: Sterling Already Has Dirt on NBA Officials

Just days after Donald Sterling put private detective teams on NBA owners and NBA officials, Sterling apparently has already hit pay dirt.

LaTi has the scoop:
Clippers owner Donald Sterling has hired four firms to dig up embarrassing information about NBA executives and fellow team owners, according to a person familiar with the latest escalation in Sterling's seven-week battle to maintain control of his team.

Sterling's confidant claims the firms already have uncovered allegations of racial discrimination by NBA officials that are as bad as comments Sterling made suggesting he did not want to see blacks at Clippers games. The Sterling ally, who declined to be named when discussing Donald's legal strategy, said he was not ready to reveal the early findings...

Sterling...hopes the "dirt" will cause embarrassment for the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver, his confidant said. Silver issued a lifetime ban and $2.5-million fine against the Clippers owner in late April after Sterling's remarks about blacks became public...

"They are trying to apply a standard, but they are not applying it equally to everyone, including themselves," the Sterling ally said. "That is going to create a real legal problem for them. Even if they are a private organization, they can't say that a policy applies to only one member and everyone else is free to do what they want."
My sources tell me that detectives also, already, have serious dirt on one of the owners. It's not clear if Sterling will use this owner dirt in round one. It appears that Sterling's focus will be on NBA officials at first and he will only go total scorched earth against other NBA owners, if they don't come to their senses and ditch NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

  1. This is going to be very entertaining - watching Sterling sling mud on those rotten bass turds. Stock up on popcorn!

    He should still take the $2 billion offer. Then sue the NBA PC police after he cashes the check.
