And the list continues to grow.  It started with Diddy and Rick Ross, then Floyd Mayweather and now Dr. Dre wants to buy the Clippers.  Check out what he had to say…



Via TMZ:

Dr. Dre tells TMZ Sports … he’s “absolutely” interested in buying the L.A. Clippers when the NBA forces Donald Sterling to sell the team … and he seems very serious about it.

“I’m thinking about it … yes,” Dre told us on his way in to Boa Steakhouse in L.A. last night.

It’s not like he couldn’t afford it … Forbes just released its list of wealthiest hip hop moguls and Dre clocked in at #2, with a reported net worth of $550 million.



There’s more…


Another boxing superstar, Oscar De La Hoya, also said Tuesday that he’d be interested in owning a piece of the team as well.

De La Hoya, a retired six-division titleholder who is now president of Golden Boy Promotions, also expressed his desire to own a share of the Clippers.

“The league has made it known that it wants more minorities involved and, as a proud Mexican-American, I will bring a different perspective to the NBA in general, and the Clippers in particular,” said De La Hoya, who has a statue in the Staples Center’s Star Plaza outside the venue’s front entrance. “I was born and raised in Los Angeles, I know what it takes to run a successful sports entity, and nothing would make me happier than to bring an NBA championship home to Southern California sports fans.

“I applaud NBA commissioner Adam Silver for his quick and decisive action regarding the Donald Sterling situation, and his forward thinking will push the league toward a positive future. There is no room for racism and unfair treatment in any professional sport, or in life in general. I hope to be a part of positive change for the league.”


And another…


Oprah Winfrey is considering teaming with David Geffen and Larry Ellison to make a bid to buy the Los Angeles Clippers if the NBA board of governors votes to force Donald Sterling to sell the team, sources told ESPN.
