Shelly Sterling: Force My Hubby Out

Shelly Sterling, the estranged wife of Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling, released a personal statement late Saturday saying she supported NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s decision to find a way to remove her husband from his position in the franchise. “I fully supported his recent swift and decisive action,” she said. As a co-owner of the Clippers, as well, she said she “agreed at that time that, as a next step, both the league and the team should work together to find some fresh, accomplished executive leadership for the Clippers.” Over the weekend, NBA spokesman Mike Bass said the league was looking for a new Clippers CEO. “The best way to ensure the stability of the team during this difficult situation is to move quickly and install a CEO to oversee the Clippers organization,” Bass said.
