Disgraced former NBA owner Donald Sterling has reportedly hired four different private detective firms to investigate former NBA commissioners as well as the current commissioner, Adam Silver. He also plans on investigating 29 NBA owners.
The firms were given a six-figure budget to investigate for the next 30 days, reports ESPN. Sterling’s lawyer, Bobby Samini, said, “Now his objective is to demonstrate for everybody that the NBA is a damned hypocrite. We’re going to pull every case against the NBA. Then we’ll demonstrate that the culture of racism and gender discrimination is born at the NBA, where Adam Silver has worked in a high-level position for a long time.”
Sterling is currently suing the NBA for $1 billion for a breach of contract and antitrust laws for forcing the sale of the Clippers. The suit also alleges that the recordings were illegal, and therefore a violation of his First Amendment.
