Chris Paul Says Sitting Out 14-15 Season A Possibility If Sterling Remains Owner Of Clippers


Closing arguments will take place Monday in the trial which will determine if Shelly Sterling had the legal right to sell the Clippers to Steve Ballmer for $2 Billion. If for some reason, the judge rules in favor of Donald, both Chris Paul and Doc Rivers have discussed sitting out games/the season, should the matter not be resolved.

“That’s something me and Doc are both talking about,” Paul said on Thursday after coaching his AAU program, CP3. “Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon — sooner rather than later.” […]

“We’re all going to talk about it,” Paul added. “We’re all definitely going to talk about it. Doc, Blake (Griffin), DJ (DeAndre Jordan). It’s unacceptable.”


Shelly’s lawyers are seeking a ruling which wouldn’t allow for an appeal, to keep Donald from stringing things out further.

“We think we have overwhelming evidence from [interim Clippers CEO] Dick Parsons and Anwar Zakkour from Bank of America, that if you don’t let this sale go through and meet the deadline for the sale, an incredibly valuable asset will fall like a rock,” O’Donnell said. “If Donald Sterling stays on as the manager and owner of this asset, Doc [Rivers] won’t coach, Chris Paul won’t play, sponsors will stay away and TV ratings will fall. It is an urgent matter that this sale be closed immediately to Mr. Ballmer and restore some stability and, frankly, dignity to the NBA in Los Angeles.”

Shelly has already protected the NBA from a suit by Donald Sterling in the agreement for the sale of the Clippers.  Essentially making it so that Donald is suing himself.
