Could The Clippers Go On Strike Next Season?? Magic Johnson Says They Just Might If The Sterling Family Doesn’t Sell The Team!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzLegal MattersBusiness BlitzBasketballMagic Johnson

Shelly Sterling

Listen up, Sterlings. It’s as simple as a Semisonic lyric…

You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here!

Following his racist rant in a leaked audio recording, current LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling received a lifetime ban from the NBA and a $2.5 million fine. But he’s not making any moves to sell off his beloved team.

And neither is his wife, Shelly Sterling!

She has her own 50% share of the NBA franchise and sources say, she doesn’t want to give it up! She has no interest in buying out her husband and reportedly is fine with forcing him to give up his stake in the team and sell his half to an outside buyer, like Oprah or Dr. Dre or any number of people interested in buying.

But she wants to stay onboard as a passive owner!

Well, according to Magic Johnson, that’s not going to fly with the current Clippers players!

They are refusing to play for ANYONE with the name Sterling next season, even Shelly!

Which makes this already messy situation even messier!

Magic, who has close ties to Chris Paul and Clippers coach Doc Rivers, explained just how this shiz might go down in 2014-2015, saying:

"Those guys are not going to play for anybody (named) Sterling. It’s just how it is. It's hard to separate the two. It's going to be hard for them to sell that to the fans and definitely to the players.”

The ban from NBA commissioner Adam Silver clearly states that Shelly is not a part of the punishment. So how will the league handle this if she decides not to sell?

We really hope a resolution is agreed upon before the players themselves have to walk out on the organization!

That’s going to be bad news for the fans, for the players, and for the sport of basketball itself!

    aids infected magic Johnson seems to be knee deep in this. maybe that's why the old guy was so pissed. If they don't want to play for millions I'm sure the Sterlings can go to Europe and pick up some players. ITS TIME FOR DIVERSITY IN THE NBA> now the players think they get to choose who owns the team. the Team owners better wise up fast.

    Our family usually goes to a couple games a season. We have decided to take in hockey games vs b-ball this next season. you never hear of hockey players beating their wives and girlfriends and have a ton of illegitimate children. Its time to clean up the NBA in a whole lot of ways.

    She has to sell unless she is willing to get a divorce. The conflict of interest is too great.
