Donald Sterling Threatens to Sue NBA, Refuses to Pay Fine

Donald Sterling is now taking actions to preserve his legacy by threatening to sue the NBA.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sterling has hired attorney Maxwell Blecher who on Sterling's behalf, sent a letter to NBA executive Rick Buchanan threatening to sue over the punishment issued to him.

Blecher states that Sterling did nothing wrong and announced that Sterling will not pay the $2.5M fine that is already past due. Blecher also included that the statements Sterling made in the audio recording about minorities and Magic Johnson aren't aligned with NBA's rule of unethical standards.

This week, Sterling apologized for the comments he made about Johnson in an interview with Anderson Cooper. He also says that he made a terrible mistake, which contradicts the point Blecher makes in his letter to the NBA.
