Celebs Step Up to Buy LA Clippers

Now that controversial Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life, a steady stream of potential buyers have come forward to show interest in the franchise, which is valued at $575 million,. The list is a who’s who of celebs, including rap moguls Rick Ross and Sean Combs, who took to Twitter to show their interest in making a joint bid for the team. Combs, aka Diddy, tweeted “I will always be a Knicks fan, but I am a business man. #DiddyBuyTheClippers #NameYourPrice.” The pair may have some competition, however, as boxer Floyd Mayweather said he is “very interested” in putting together “a group of billionaires” to buy the team. Of course, right now this is just speculation as 75 percent of NBA owners would have to vote for Sterling to be forced to sell his valuable team.
