Donald Sterling Refused To Pay NBA Mandated $2.5 Million Fine For Racist Rant
Disgraced NBA owner Donald Sterling — caught on tape in a shocking racist rant — has no intention of paying the $2.5 million penalty levied against him, and in a letter Thursday made clear his intention to sue the league, Sports Illustrated reported.
A high-powered attorney for the banned owner of the Los Angeles Clippers wrote to NBA Vice President Rich Buchanan claiming that “no punishment is warranted” for Sterling, according to SI.com.
The attorney, Maxwell Blecher, also said the 80-year-old will not comply with the $2.5 million fine the NBA slapped on him April 29, when the scandal first broke. Commissioner Adam Silver issued a lifetime NBA ban on Sterling at the same time.
The deadline for Sterling to pay up passed earlier this week with no response from the embattled billionaire.
The letter served as a clear statement that Sterling plans to go into overtime to fight for his franchise.
“We reject your demand for payment,” Blecher wrote, according to SI.com.
The lawyer’s final line in the letter says the matter “will be adjudicated,” the website reported.
There is nothing this piece of isht can do to save face at this point. Whatever slim chance he had to become a sympathetic figure he blew as soon as he sat down with Anderson Cooper. At this point he needs to just go away and wait patiently for the day his heart stops beating.
