    0

    LOS ANGELES: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said on Wednesday he was baffled by the latest attack on the league and himself from embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Speaking in a television interview from game three of the NBA championship finals in Miami, Silver said the league has no role in the brewing dispute between Donald Sterling and his wife Shelly, who has negotiated a proposed $2 billion sale of the club to former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer. In a statement issued through attorney Bobby Samini and published Tuesday on The Los Angeles Times website, Sterling accuses Silver of ignoring “the NBA’s own discriminatory practices, including those that occurred under his many years of leadership”—noting that Silver has worked in the league since 1992. “I have no idea what he’s talking about,” Silver said. “This is about Donald Sterling and his conduct, and if he wants to litigate, he’ll litigate.”
