When Shelly Sterling started lining up buyers for the L.A. Clippers, it may have seemed, at least for a minute, that Donald Sterling was ready to walk away from the NBA. In fact, he cleared the way in a letter to the NBA confirming that he authorized his wife to negotiate the sale of the team. But now, his lawyer tells ESPN that Donald Sterling "is going to fight to the bloody end," and "he disavows anything" Shelly is doing to sell the team. So what's next for the Clippers? Anderson spoke with CNN legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Jeffrey Toobin along with Rachel Nichols, host of CNN's Unguarded.

The problem with the argument that what he said was private and was illegally obtained is a moot point. The fact of the matter is that this was released and the entire world heard it. We can't unhear it. We can't erase it from our memories. We all know what he said. All of us with good consciences know what he said, and there is no way that anyone is neutral: He's a racist, period. There are no neutrals here. What's he going to do? Sue the entire population of Planet Earth? Where will he find an impartial judge and/or jury? Answer: nowhere. The only sane thing he can do at this point is run away from the team, the NBA and all of humanity.
Oh no. Why did it have to happen – just when it seemed all was good. Oh no. Maybe Anderson could get Sterling to do another interview so that CNN could have some new material that Anderson, Don, & the whole CNN gang can use to tear him up some more.
Don't know what blogs or posts you at CNN read but the majority of the public do not believe the Sterlings should be forced to sell team. As usual CNN you are judge and jury by your bias reporting of a story. You claim the public is outraged and want forced sale which is not the truth. You and your commentators are the ones pushing the sell. You have have stated you have to keep the pressure on to force sale of course by your bias reporting and agenda. You try to inflame the public by your one sided reporting of stories but the majority of the public do not believe they should be forced to sell. That is blatant lies you tell on CNN as to public opinion for your own agendas and ratings.
