Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been the center of one of the biggest scandals of the year and now, it’s being reported that the 80-year-old has also been facing some medical issues.
According to reports, Sterling has been battling prostate cancer for the past several years and per the New York Post, the medication Sterling has been taking is the reason behind the “puffy appearance of his face.”
“They thought he would die two years ago,” a source tells the news outlet. “People have been predicting his imminent demise. I’m sure he has the best . . . drugs money can buy.”
Following the Clippers loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, the team responded to the news. “I hope it’s not true,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.
“If that is true, my thoughts and prayers are with him,” Blake Griffin shared. “Nobody deserves to go through something like that.”
On Tuesday, Commissioner, Adam Silver announced to the nation that the Clippers owner will no longer be associated with the NBA.
“Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” Silver said. “Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facility, and he may not participate in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team.”
