Sterling Case Closing Arguments to Begin

Donald Sterling(CNN) — Closing arguments are set to begin Monday in the battle over the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.

A judge will decide if Donald Sterling’s estranged wife Shelly can sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion without his sign-off.

Mrs. Sterling, who is co-owner of the team, is trying to control the family trust. She claims Donald is mentally incapable of making decisions on his own.

Donald Sterling has a counter-suit pending against his wife and the NBA.

The league ordered the sale of the team after his recorded racist remarks to a companion were made public.

    Don Sterling will win the case when it it is all said and done.The NBA is wrong based on the bylaws. You can’t force a sale based on a conversation, you have to be willful and take action .. Don sterling did not meet the standard of both. The NBA was using a PR stunt to cover itself. As far as the players are concern, regarding a walkout see how long that last as they could not agree in 2012 for a players union strike for themselves. The same NBA who is crying for the players now will turn on them if they miss games and cost the owners of other teams to miss money.Also these same players Doc Rivers, who played for clippers before knew full well the image of Sterling but he still became clippers coach. Chris Paul came back and did a new contract. So I hope they walkout and see if the NBA or other teams owners pay them?
    They are just blowing smoke. Don Sterling should win , because if he doesn’t just wait until the next tape comes out on you and they use the Sterling law to take your hone, business. See if you don;t cry foul then.

    So the guy is jerk, but I do not understand why he should be forced to sell his team. His so called girlfriend used a illegal voice recording of him. She violate privacy rights and should be put in jail over it. In a court of law the recording evidence is inadmissible because it was obtained illegally. When you can no longer speak your mind in your own home then we we truly have no constitutional rights
