Donald Sterling once again returned to the stand on Wednesday and continued his villainous role in this saga by calling his wife a 'pig' in court.
Sterling on the stand makes for fantastic theatre but the delusional and bizarre Clippers owner continues to cut the shape of a mentally incapacitated man who struggles to grasp the context of the proceedings.
He once again vowed to sue the NBA 'until he dies' and also berated his wife during the third day of the court case centered around the lifetime ban the league gave to the 80-year-old.
Continuing in his raging manner, Sterling angrily shouted his case to witnesses at the court and did so with the attitude of nothing to lose.
Sterling stated: "“Make no mistake today, I will never, ever, sell this team. Until I die, I will be suing the NBA,"
Sterling felt betrayed by his wife Shelly Sterling and after Judge Michael Levanas called an end to the day’s testimony, he was heard saying to his wife: “Get away from me, you pig! Shelly, how could you lie?”
The Clippers owner is hoping that the judge will rule that his wife and her attorneys did not follow the rules of the joint Sterling Family Trust in having him declared incapacitated and making her the sole trustee of the Clippers.
Although his actions and his blasé attitude towards the proceedings over the three days will certainly do him no favours with how the judge will approach the case.
Quite sadly to say, the only positive to come from Sterling's current state is the entertainment value it will produce, the human issue may have taken a strange term simply through Sterling's bewildering actions.
If Sterling is to be reinstated by the judge then it would cancel any attempted takeover of the franchise by former Microsoft CEO Steve Baller. The NBA has backed the sale for $2 billion to Baller but Sterling still may be able to kill off any transaction.
The hearing itself will continue for one to two more days, so the end of the saga involving Donald Sterling being ousted from the National Basketball Association is nearing its intriguing and exciting conclusion.
