DEVELOPING: Sterling Refusing Sanctions, Hiring Lawyers

((HT: SI/TheScore))

Michael McCann over at SI has details that embattled Clippers owner Donald Sterling has hired a big-time antitrust lawyer, Maxwell Blecher, who has told the NBA that his client "has done nothing wrong" and will not pay the $2.5-million fine imposed.

In the McCann article, Blechler's approach to combating the NBA is: 1) Saying that Sterling has not violated the NBA Constitution and, 2) Sterling's "due process" was violated.

The NBA seems to already have most, if not all, of their plan in place in battling Sterling. But the guy wants to go to the wall on all of this- not shocking the HQ one damn bit...

Here's the report from last night in Los Angeles that had the story up-to-date to the McCann article
