According to reports, the owner of the L.A. Lakers has been battling cancer.
The New York Post is reporting that Donald Sterling has been battling cancer for some time now and was expected to die at least two years ago.
One of their sources who works with professional sports teams said that “People have been predicting his imminent demise.” He added that he’s “sure he has the best…drugs money can buy. He can do anything to keep himself alive.”
According to the source, the drugs are also the reason that his face always appears puffy.
A separate source said that the specific cancer he’s battling is in his prostate, which ironically is the same cancer one of his assistant coaches for the Clippers suffered from ten years ago and Sterling refused to pay for the surgery.
To add insult to injury, one of Sterling’s ex-girlfriends released pictures of him in his underwear to Inside Edition.
Alexandra Castro released the photos of him lounging around in his bed with nothing but a pair of tighty-whities on. Apparently Sterling had called her a hooker in a 2003 lawsuit and the photos were used as proof of their intimate relationship.
Well, if the revelations of him fighting cancer are in fact true then it looks like all of the people who were outraged at his remarks over the weekend are going to get their wish sooner than they thought.
