Donald Sterling is planning to sue the National Basketball Association to the tune of $1 billion despite being set to receive double that with the sale of the LA Clippers looking likely.
According to NBC News, the disgraced owner is planning to take the NBA to the courts after being forced to relinquish ownership of the team in recent days.
As we reported earlier, Sterling was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease this last week in a move which meant the franchise, league, and his estranged wife Shelly could bypass him in pushing through the sale of the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.
The lawsuit is set to be filed by Donald Sterling Friday afternoon according to a source close to the 81-year-old.
The move is likely to anger critics of Sterling even further with many already frustrated that the embattled owner is set to profit from an incident in which he expressed derogatory and racist remarks.
This story is likely to rumble on as both sides seek to win out but the NBA,it's fans and those associated with the Los Angeles Clippers will be hoping the right result is reached in the end.
