So Long, Donald Sterling! The Los Angeles Clippers Have Been Sold To Steve Ballmer!

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersBusiness BlitzBasketballNBA

The Los Angeles Clippers have been SOLD

Goodbye forever, awful Donald Sterling! There’s a new owner in town and he’s totally NOT a racist!

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has officially bought the Los Angeles Clippers, after the sale was held up in court for awhile by Sterling.

The pricetag was steep though, at $2 billion! Basically, he made an offer that they couldn’t refuse!

However, the decision to allow the sale is a tentative ruling by the judge, who will need to issue a final order, and the NBA’s board of governors needs to vote to approve the sale as well.

But from the looks of everything, it’s going to be a-okay!

There’s also the issue of moving the Clippers now. Previously, Ballmer said that Seattle deserves to have a team, but in light of actually getting the Clippers, he’s reiterated that he has no plans to move them!

So, congratulations Clippers fans! Your former sucky owner is gone!

Now THIS is a homecoming fit for a King!

LeBron James was welcomed back to the great state of Ohio this weekend by more than 25,000 fans who evidently have a horrible memory!

Regardless of the fact that King James abandoned the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2009, we guess these people put back on their #23 jerseys (if they didn't burn them to a crisp 5 years ago) and came out to support their prodigal son.

Fans lined up outside of Akron's InfoCision Stadium and waited over six hours in the summer heat in order to get prime seats to see the man they hope will finally bring their team the championship they’ve longed for.

After a performance from Skylar Grey singing her hit song I'm Coming Home, LeBron made his way onto the stage to a roar from the crowd!

The King spoke to his loyal subjects, saying:

Filed under: Love LineNBA

nicole murphy has officially moved on from michael strahan and shes dating another sports legend

That was fast!

It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that Nicole Murphy has broken off her engagement with NFL legend Michael Strahan, but now she's been spotted out with another man - one who is also a sports legend albeit in basketball rather than football!

Nicole Murphy was recently seen having a VERY good time with former NBA player Gary Payton this past Thursday at The Pump Group VIP Cocktail Reception in West Hollywood, and the lady was ALL smiles as she showed off her lovely figure in a beautiful dress and her apparent new man!

And although the reality lady's rep isn't confirming or denying the speculation - a different source believes that if she is dating Gary - it wouldn't come as a surprise. Nor would it be a surprise for Nicole if Michael stepped out with someone now, too!

This is insane!

The basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest already dropped jaws when he changed his name to Metta World Peace while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.

But now, he’s changing it again!

The 34-year-old is going overseas to play for the Sichuan Blue Whales in China, so he’s changing his name to The Pandas Friend.
