NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver, dropped the hammer on Clippers owner Donald Sterling yesterday, imposing a lifetime ban and a $2.5M fine, the maximum allowed. Silver also added that Donald Sterling will be told to sell his franchise, which has garnered the interest of multiple hip-hop icons, and mega-gambler/ Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Diddy, Dr. Dre, and Rick Ross are among those voicing interest in the Clippers franchise.  

 

According to ESPN, Mayweather, who will be returning to the ring this weekend, had this to say in regards to the Clippers franchise being up for grabs; 

"I called Al today about that to see if me, Leonard and Al, and hopefully Richard and a couple of other guys, a couple other of my billionaire guys, we can come together and see what we can come up with," Mayweather said. "Hopefully, we can do it, and it's not just talk.

 

"With me, I can't come in talking about Mayweather only gonna get 3 percent, 4 percent. I got to get a solid percentage. Do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes, we do. We are very, very interested in buying the Clippers. We'll keep the Clippers right where they're at.

 

"When I'm not boxing, I'm at the games all the time. We do want to buy the Clippers. Me and my team do want to buy the Clippers and we can afford the Clippers."

Let the bidding wars begin.
