Report: Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Has Prostate Cancer: Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, 80, has been battling prostate cancer, the New York Post reports. The newspaper provides this tasteless quote from an unnamed source: "They thought he would die two years ago. People have been predicting his imminent demise." A decade ago Sterling wouldn't pay for the prostate cancer treatment of then-assistant coach Kim Hughes. "I contacted the Clippers about medical coverage and they said the surgery wouldn't be covered," Hughes said in 2011. "They said if they did it for one person, they'd have to do it for everybody else."

I wonder what the late Gil Scott Heron would have to say about all this. He was merciless when it was revealed that the newly pardoned Nixon had almost died of phlebitis.

You just don't know where the next heavy twist in the Sterling saga is going to come from at this point. I envision Jack Nicholson being asked to play Sterling in a biopic, reading the script, then handing it back to his agent saying, "Sorry, Sanderoo, I'm too fuckin' exhausted to do any Elizabethan shit".
