Donald Sterling has had an eventful summer. Ever since the former LA Clippers owner was banned by the NBA for life, Sterling has either been fighting to clear his name or having a go at others.
And although he might be on the verge of giving up on clearing his name with the NBA, he hasn't given up on talking bad about others.
So who was the latest star to feel the wrath of the angry and disillusioned former Clippers owner? Well, this time it was LA Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant.
Bryant has had his fair share of bad press and criticism over the years. There were obviously the rape allegations, but Donald Sterling is currently much more worried about highlighting the time when Kobe Bryant went completely mental at a referee.
Basketball, like many other top sports, is a tough and nerve racking sport. Players often let their aggression spill over, but this example of Kobe losing it is unacceptable.
Although Sterling is a terrible human being, it is right that he cites Kobe for this past controversy. The disgraced former Clippers owner is essentially trying to bad name others who weren't treated as harshly.
New legal papers
And Sterling is using some new legal papers that were filed in federal court this week in California to vent his frustration. Sterling is apparently citing some examples from other players and team owners, with the comments below reported by thewrap.com.
"Kobe Bryant calling a referee a “fucking faggot” on television, for which he received a $100,000 fine but no suspension," the Wrap.com reported.
"A team owner who donated $500,000 to the National Organization for Marriage, “which advocates around the nation to legally ban marriage between homosexual couples.”"
The suit goes on to cite other related offenses by owners and players that drew lesser punishments than Sterling received himself.
It seems that Sterling is just interesting in creating headlines these days, but no matter how much he tries to deflect attention away from himself, what he said and did is and will always be unforgivable.
