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.
Kim Kardashian Savagely Claps Back At Lamar Odom Over Khloe Diss
Let’s be clear, Kim Kardashian isn’t a savage, but her clapback to Lamar Odom after he low key dissed her sister Khloe was pretty ferocious.
After Odom appeared on BET’s The Man Cave and told the hosts that he knew his marriage to Khloé was over “when she was with her second or third NBA ballplayer,” Kim got him all the way together.
“Or second or third brothel,” she shot back via Twitter.
The former NBA player reportedly frequented brothels including Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch were he infamously overdosed back in October 2015. Khloe helped nurse him back to health and even called off their divorce until he was fully recovered.
Odom told the hosts that he has nothing but love for her and wished well with her new relationship with Tristan Thompson and her pregnancy. “I’m happy for her! She took care of me,” he said. “She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
You can see the full episode of BET’s Mancave Thursday at 8/9c.
