Donald Sterling Battling Prostate Cancer!

Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been the center of one of the biggest scandals of the year and now, it’s being reported that the 80-year-old has also been facing some medical issues.

According to reports, Sterling has been battling prostate cancer for the past several years and per the New York Post, the medication Sterling has been taking is the reason behind the “puffy appearance of his face.”

“They thought he would die two years ago,” a source tells the news outlet. “People have been predicting his imminent demise. I’m sure he has the best . . . drugs money can buy.”

Following the Clippers loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, the team responded to the news. “I hope it’s not true,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.

“If that is true, my thoughts and prayers are with him,” Blake Griffin shared. “Nobody deserves to go through something like that.”

On Tuesday, Commissioner, Adam Silver announced to the nation that the Clippers owner will no longer be associated with the NBA.

“Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” Silver said. “Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facility, and he may not participate in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team.”

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
