5 Facts About Donald Sterling

1. He’s married. He’s been married to Rochelle Stein since 1957 and it appears that she may be defending him. See the first link below to view pictures of him and his wife out together since his racist comments hit the media. They don’t look happy, but they are indeed together.

2. He’s filthy rich. He’s #972 on “The World’s Billionaires” list and Forbes lists him to have a net worth of $1.9 billion. His sources of wealth are listed to be real estate and self-made. He’s purchased thousands of apartments primarily in Los Angeles. He bought the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team in 1981 for $12 million; Forbes now values the team at $430 million. It’s safe to say that even if he’s forced to sell the team he will remain filthy rich.

3. He’s had legal issues before. In 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice sued Sterling for housing discrimination based on race. In 2009, he was sued by a former longtime Clippers executive for employment discrimination on the basis of race and age.

4. He was an attorney. He graduated from California State University in 1956 and then from Southwestern University School of Law in 1960. He built an independent practice and was a divorce and personal injury attorney.

5. He’s banned from the NBA for life. He can’t even attend games. He’s also been fined $2.5 million which is the maximum amount allowed. Adam Silver, NBA commissioner, added “We stand together in condemning Mr. Sterling’s views. They simply have no place in the NBA.”
