LOS ANGELES (AP) – A raging Donald Sterling denounced his wife, her lawyers and the NBA from the witness stand and said he would never sell the Los Angeles Clippers.
Sterling, his voice rising to a shout in an otherwise quiet courtroom Wednesday, vowed to spend the rest of his life suing the league.
Sterling said his wife, Shelly, had deceived him, that she was not capable of understanding the family trust, and that he did not authorize her to strike a deal to sell the team.
He was followed to the witness stand by Shelly Sterling, who declared her love for him, but says she was convinced he needed to be examined for Alzheimer’s disease
As she was leaving the witness stand for the day, she tried to approach her husband in the audience. But he shouted “get away, from me you pig!”
