Former Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Diagnosed with Alzheimer's

Donald Sterling has reportedly been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, TMZ reports.

The 80-year-old ex owner of the Clippers saw two neurologists and underwent tests, where both physicians diagnosed him with the disease and said he did not have the ability to conduct the business of the team

The doctors also reportedly think he could have been suffering from Alzheimer’s for five years. The doctors’ final report was enough to strip his control of the team.

It was announced earlier today that the Clippers was bought for two billion dollars by Steve Ballmer.

    He was diagnosed w/ prostate cancer. Which isn’t typically a cancer they even treat in someone his age. As far as being diagnosed w/ Alzheimer’s … who cares? But I also never really cared that a team of multi-millionaires got their feelings hurt over something some old rich jew said.
    NBA = Get accused and tried for rape = “no biggie”

    Say something racist = “BANNED FOR LIFE!”

    @#3 – The fact that Donald Sterling happens to be Jewish has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with this case. Why bring it up??

    I still want to know who set him up? I believe it was Charles Latibeaudiere from TMZ. He has often made racist comments on TV that since all the best players are African American that only African Americans can own the team. Racist!

    He is also in cahoots with Magic Johnson who has long tried to buy the team. They are racketeers trying to steal it cheap by setting up the owner for their own profit and racist ideals. What about the racist setup NBA?

    Who planned it and/or who sold the tape?

    So tired of him being called a racist. EVERYONE has been a racist at one point or another in their life!!!! Admit it. If this man is sick and dying, let him live his last years in peace. Those of you who still can’t let it go with him…well, karma will return you the favor one day.
