Last week, Donald Sterling was the center of attention in the world of sports after a racist rant led him to be banned from the NBA for life.
But apparently the 80-year-old has no plans of going down without a fight as sources say he's planning on battling the league in court!
Insiders say that Donald has been in contact with several law firms and will be taking action against the league for their attempts to force him to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.
He's allegedly contacted Patricia Glaser, and if that name sounds familiar it's probably because she previously represented Paula Deen in a separate racism scandal after the celebrity chef admitted to using the N word in her restaurant!
Sounds like this is right up her alley!
Donald has also apprently been in touch with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan, a law firm that specializes in business litigation.
While it's clear Donald plans on going down swinging, we're not sure what he plans to gain here. Even if he DOES retain ownership of the Clippers, sponsors have already showed they don't want to be associated with him, and we're willing to bet not many players or coaches in the NBA would want to work for a team owned by him when there are 29 other teams to chose from!
