Donald Sterling’s Lawyers Mention Kobe Bryant In Legal Response To NBA

The Donald Sterling continues to offer twists and turns on an almost daily basis. Ever since Sterling was banned for life, there have been reports that he was prepared to sue the NBA. But recently, it seemed as if Sterling was ready to sell the team.

Now that seems not to be the case as Sterling and his lawyers have written a 32-page legal response to the NBA. According to the LA Daily News’ Mark Medina, it mentions a certain Laker’s outburst as evidence to support Sterling:

It’s facially ludicrous that what Mr. Sterling said in these circumstances could produce the equivalent of a death penalty while Kobe Bryant called a referee a [homosexual slur] on national television sustaining only a modest $100,000 fine.

Four years ago, Bryant used a homosexual slur while talking to an NBA official and it was caught on camera, earning Bryant a $100,000 fine. Sterling’s lawyers seem to be trying to use this as an argument against the Sterling ban, but it is unlikely to work.

The players, both for the Clippers and around the league, will not stand for Sterling continuing to be owner of the Clippers. If he remains, it is a serious possibility that players will boycott games.

The bigger question here is what does Donald Sterling have against the Lakers. He has already gone after Magic Johnson in an interview, claiming that he is not a good role model for young children.
