Donald Sterling-----Many sources within the NBA have told Gregory Crawford On Basketball that the league's owners are not that worried about any legal challenges from Donald Sterling and they are more than united to oust him as an owner and clean the slate in the Clippers' ownership.
Of course with his history it was expected that Sterling would challenge the move to remove him from the league, but with united owners, the fact the NBA is a private organization and due process as we know it, is a mute point and the fact that Sterling as an owner agreed to abide by the league's rules and regulations, it all makes for a good case to oust him.
Many people also feel Sterling will make a lot of noise, but in the long run, he will leave quietly, because of the both the private and public pressure on him to no longer be a part of the NBA.
NBA Tickets----It is interesting to note that since 2011, there have been 22 series in the National Hockey League that have gone 7 games and 13 in the NBA. Of those series, the average ticket price on the secondary market for game seven in the NHL has been $512.00 and the NBA $444.00.
It should be noted that on average, tickets in the NBA sell for much higher prices than than NHL tickets, but when it comes to Game 7s, the NHL fans are much more demanding.
Kevin Love----There is no question, Kevin Love wants out of Minnesota, once his contract is up, if he makes it that far. It is becoming more and more apparent if the Wolves want to get some value out of Love, then need to trade for him and do it sooner than later.
It has been rumored that Love has interest in going to Chicago or Golden State. But let's get real here, the number one choice would be the Los Angeles Lakers, end of question.
Also interesting is the fact that Love's camp has never ruled out playing in Portland, his hometown. Presently at 25 years old and the way Love has dedicated himself to making his body supreme and training that is hard to match, his career easily could go to 40.
