Exclusive: Can The NBA Force Donald Sterling To Sell The Clippers?

Published

On Tuesday morning, NBA commissioner, Adam Silver will announce during a press conference the fate of Donald Sterling’s future with the Los Angeles Clippers. During a recorded conversation that was leaked over the weekend, the Clippers owner allegedly made some disparaging and racist comments and scolded alleged girlfriend, V. Stiviano for posting pictures with Black people online.

A full investigation has been launched, but the big question is: Can the NBA force Sterling to step down as owner or can they force Sterling to sell the team? HipHollywood caught up with attorney, Jamon Hicks of the Douglas Hicks Law Firm who weighed in.

“Assuming that the NBA releases a statement today stating that they want Mr. Sterling to step down as the owner of the Clippers, you will likely see a lawsuit from Mr. Sterling against the NBA on the grounds that they are trying to force him to give up his property, his rights to own the team and that they are forcing him to step down.”

Hicks continued, “And that all he was doing, even if you’re assuming it was very foul language, that he is exercising his first amendment right to freedom of speech and that you can not then punish him by taking the team away from him.”

The Clippers will take on the Golden State Warriors tonight for a highly anticipated game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Pink’s stank face officially became the GIF and meme of the 2017 American Music Awards.

It was during Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute that cameras captured Pink making a not so sweet face. Now, given how spectacular the performance was, it could’ve been the “she’s killing it” stank face that musicians love to make.

But … given the pair’s history, fans are speculating that the pop star was simply not a fan of Aguilera’s set. “Pink I feel ya girl. That Whitney Houston tribute was horrendous. Christina tried it,” one fan said.

The good news is, Pink really did enjoy her former frenemy’s performance. “Yes. THIS. Christina f*cking killed it tonight for one of our favorite singers ever,” she tweeted on Sunday night. “This about Whitney, and I am in awe of Christina’s talent. Show the clip where I’m in tears, you negative Nancy’s.”

Pink and Christina have had ongoing beef for years, but during a recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Pink explained that the two simply grew up. “She’s so talented, she’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice,” she said.

The singer added, “I hadn’t seen her in years and years an years. We became moms, we grew up, we hugged it out.”

There you have it folks, Pink and Christina are still on good terms.
