IFWT_Magic donald  2

We need to get this guy, Donald Sterling, out of the NBA (and this world) so one option would be to sell the Clippers — and guess who’s reportedly interested?!  I think this would be perfect!!
Check it out…



Via YahooSports:

Magic Johnson and his billionaire backers, the Guggenheim Partners, want a chance to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. “Magic’s absolutely interested,” one source closely connected to Johnson’s business interests told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night.

To bail themselves out of the NBA’s worst crisis of credibility since the Tim Donaghy officiating scandal, the easy part for the NBA will be enlisting the eagerness and financial muscle of Magic Johnson and Mark Walter of the Guggenheim Partners – owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Nevertheless, this is business and Magic’s willing to change colors and make himself a Clipper. Between the Dodgers and Clippers, Magic Johnson could be the face of two championship contenders.

Magic could have it all.

“This is 100 percent Magic’s plan,” a league official intimately involved in the buying and selling of franchises told Yahoo Sports.

*Update* Someone else in the mix! Via TMZ:

Billionaire real estate developer Rick Caruso says he’s ready and willing to buy the L.A. Clippers if Donald Sterling gets the boot — telling TMZ Sports he already has a team of investors ready to pounce.

Caruso — who made a run to purchase the L.A. Dodgers back in 2012 — tells us … “If [The Clippers] become available, I would absolutely be interested.”

Rick notes, “We have a group still together from when we looked at the Dodgers … and if it makes sense, I’ll take a shot at it.”
