Donald Sterling's lawyer Bobby Samini appeared on NBC's the Today show to discuss Sterling's change of heart to sell his team and to challenge NBA's lifetime ban on sterling .
The sale which appeared to be going through until Sterling vowed this week to fight against it .
Shelly Sterling , Donald Sterling's wife was able to sell the team without his consent after medical examination concluded Sterling had Alzheimer's disease and was declared mentally incapacitated to make any financial decisions regarding the LA Clippers
However Sterling's Lawyer told Matt Lauer that eventhough Sterling was diagnosed with Alzheimer's he is still of sound mind .
“Matt I know you’ve spoken to him,” . “I’ve spent a fair amount of time with Donald Sterling. There is no issue with his mental capacity.”
Samini also shifted his focus on discrimination cases filed against the NBA in the last few years , which includes a 2007 case settled by Isiah Thomas and the NY Knicks Sa
Samini went on to issue threats to expose NBA as a band of hypocrites
“If you’re going to come after Sterling maybe it’s time for the NBA to take a close reflection on their own conduct,” “They seem to think gender discrimination is OK.”
“But again I think the bigger issue is that my client is out to clear his name and he’s going to basically expose the NBA for what it is — it’s a band of hypocrites.”

Two sources told "Outside the Lines" on Friday that Gordon's latest violation is the result of marijuana being found during a drug test. One source said Gordon received a letter in early winter from a league physician stating he had failed a test. A second letter, informing Gordon that he faced a 16-game suspension but had the right to appeal, was sent in late April.
Gordon also had problems with testing positive for marijuana in college . He was dismissed by Baylor after being suspended twice for marijuana use in 2010.
The 23-year-old Gordon was expected to be the top target for the Cleveland Browns after leading the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards and became the first player with consecutive 200-yard receiving games.
Josh Gordon's agent Drew Rosenhaus denies the allegations

Friday, April 18, 2014
According to a source close to the situation, Kerr "absolutely expects" to be offered the job. "And if he’s offered the job he’s definitely going to do it," the source told The Post.
The Post has learned Kerr has had conversations with his bosses at Turner Sports about adjusting his schedule as an analyst during the upcoming playoffs should he be named the Knicks head coach.
The report states that Kerr's previous relationship with Phil Jackson combined with his knowledge of the triangle offense is what makes him the leading candidate for the Knicks coaching job.
Steve Kerr has no experience as a Head Coach but has expressed interest in coaching the past few years .
