Chris Paul, Doc Rivers

Despite the NBA’s lifetime ban for Clippers owner Donald Sterling, the sale of the team by wife, Shelly Sterling, has been put on hold while a probate trial commences to determine whether Shelly acted properly in selling the team without his consent. Much like Clippers coach Doc Rivers threatening to leave if the team still remains run by Sterling when the season starts, star point guard Chris Paul has issued his own ultimatum to the league, where he mentioned to ESPN he — and some of his big-name teammates — will be sitting out if the issue hasn’t been cleared up by the start of training camp in October.

Shelly Sterling, Donald Sterling

Despite a five-week offseason that’s already been more exciting and financially fruitful than any in recent memory, the black cloud of Donald Sterling still hangs over the NBA landscape.
