While Donald Sterling was dealing with the NBA taking his team, he may have been also battling prostate cancer, according to the New York Post's sources.

The report says that Sterling was expected to die two years ago, but of course, he's an affluent person, so the treatment's affordable.

From the Post:

"People have been predicting his imminent demise. I'm sure he has the best . . . drugs money can buy," said the source, who works closely with pro sports teams. "He can do anything to keep himself alive."

The source said some of the medication Sterling has been taking is responsible for the puffy appearance of his face.

Another source said Sterling, 80, was specifically suffering from prostate cancer.
The report also claims that in the fallout of his lifetime ban, Sterling's been phoning friends, asking them to tell him he's not a racist.

He had a chance to pay for the treatment of one of his ast coaches for the exact same thing. Instead 4 players who probably make 1/100 as Sterling chipped in for it. I agree with you about cancer but I don't have a shred of sympathy for Sterling. No one should.

it's tough for me to feel for him.

No, I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone (my mom passed from lymphoma 4 years ago) but I can't muster up an ounce of sympathy towards him.

He is a terrible human being. I get that in our private conversations we'll say stuff that would be deemed offensive towards other people but his ignorance is beyond words and truly grounded in hate. First off, you're dating a HALF BLACK woman and you own a team where 90% of the players AND the head coach are black. Being part of the NBA, you've spent decades working with people of all races yet you still hold such ignorant beliefs? How stupid can you be?

Berating Magic Johnson of all people?? He's one of the nicest guys/ kind-hearted athletes out there yet you still view him as an "it" rather than a human being? Despicable.

Plus there's the stuff about him selectively forcing out Black and Latino families from his housing facilities. That's not O.K. And his wife is just as rotten as he is for staying with him, and she even pretended to be an inspector and went into peoples houses just to check whether they were black or latino. What a crooked family.

So I guess in conclusion, I'm not happy he has cancer, but I'm certainly not sad for him.

His legacy is completely ruined and he's going to die knowing the world hates him (and he has no one to blame but himself). I think that's punishment enough.

Terrible human being? Oh come on, he said some racist things. That does not make him a terrible human being. Now I am not defending him as a human, but some things said on a tape does NOT make him a terrible person. He was part of the community and did donate millions of dollars throughout his tenure.

People seem to forget how old DS was... He lived in a different generation than you and I.. He lived in a generation in which being racist was more acceptable. I just simply can't call him a terrible human being because of it. My grandpa is the most caring person I've ever met, he would do anything for anyone of my family members. He would go and help a stranger without hesitation. He's an old man, lived in a different time and occasionally will say something that could be considered racist. He is in no way-shape-or-form a terrible human being.

Cancer is horrible, one of the worst things in the world. I don't wish it upon anyone.

I get people are defending him, it's probably the "moral" thing to do, but come on, do you REALLY care that he has cancer or are you just saying it? At the end of the day, he's 80 years old, lived his life as a billionaire, is a clear racist and was going to deny one of his workers the same surgery they needed when 70k is the equivalent to $5 for him.

I'm just saying, it's karma. Bad things happen to bad people and good people, but I'm not going to sympathize for someone that can't adapt to society. I might be a jerk, that's fine, I've been on here the last few days saying how the double standard is BS, but I'll say it how it is. I'm 27, I have lost people that are amazing people, and I wouldn't wish that pain on anyone, it could just as easily happen to me. But to sit here and feel bad for someone that honestly, probably had something to do with this info being released? Sorry.

Magic Johnson had HIV, before the new meds came out back when it was essentially a death sentence, and prolonged his life and lives well.

Cancer is horrible, one of the worst things in the world. I don't wish it upon anyone.

No doubt, I have a few family-friends in their 80's-90's who occasionally let a racist thing slip every now and then, but the difference between them and Donald Sterling is his racism ruined other people's livelihood. 19 different tenants sued his real estate company where he was said to have favored Koreans over Mexicans and Black people...

His exact quote was: ...."That's because of all the blacks in this building. They smell, they're not clean," he said. "And it's because of all of the Mexicans that just sit around and smoke and drink all day." He added, "So we have to get them out of here."

Luckily some of the people who complained settled their cases and hopefully got compensation for his bigotry.

But when you kick someone out of their home for no other reason than race, you're a terrible human being in my book.

I'm all for people being able to say what they want to say, but when you're racism leaves innocent people homeless, it's much different than just saying a few silly comments.

Cracka2HI!
05-02-2014, 05:02 AM
Karma.... really?Absolutely. If you read about what Sterling wouldn't do to help out Kim Hughes who he underpaid for years you might understand better. If you could spend 7 pennies to pay for a loyal employees cancer treatment who can't afford to pay for it himself because of you, wouldn't you do it? If that same person that wouldn't spend the 7 pennies gets the same cancer that is karma. Please forgive me for having no sympathy for the man. That is not saying I'm glad he has cancer. Just don't feel sorry for him.


Is that what you would say to his family?He wouldn't have a common man like me anywhere near his family.

*Superman*
05-02-2014, 05:12 AM
Yeah, I just want to clear up about what I meant when I said karma, basically what Cracka was saying. If you're in a position to help someone out and have all the money in the world, but just shrug it off and say, "tough ****", you're not going to get any sympathy from me when you end up with the same disease. Like seriously, you're net worth is 2 freaking Billion and you can't spare 70,000 to help someone when they need it most, that's a real low-life thing to do. Him having cancer is not even about being a racist for me, it's about being in the position to help someone that needs it and deciding not to.

He's just lucky he has all the money to keep himself alive for who knows how long. He doesn't need my sympathy.

Cuban said Sterling has the right to express himself and we shall not blame him too much, and some people believed that if other NBA owners hadnt agreed oustering Sterling, then probably they were afraid of the similar thing happening to them. People, when in private, likely have said something bad, which are not supposed to be revealed to the public. But according to bleacher report, all other owners agreed so what I said above will not happen.

Some very sympathetic Sterling posts now that it is known that he has cancer...He's in his 80's...41% of all Americans will develop cancer in their lifetimes...That's 130 million of us...130 MILLION, in this country alone. Yes, Cancer is horrible, and no one should wish it on anybody, but if you expect me to have sympathy for Sterling as if his cancer somehow voids his awful human rights sentiments than you can forget it...

The ban isn't intimidating at all. ESPN has an article about him today, you guys are all talking about him. He's rich and FAMOUS. Which was his sole reason to buy an NBA team. He could deal with the subhumans so long as he got famous. So keep saying his name, keep arguing about his absurd ignorance, just keep feeding his ego. I'm gonna go the other route and just forget that he exists at all.
This isn't about saying something inappropriate or off-colour. This is decades of actions based upon his racism, a lifetime achievement. The man is such an egomaniac that he doesn't mind being remembered as a horrible piece of ****, so long as he's remembered. He'll be revered in circles where people hate minorities and **** farm animals until the end of time.
If we forget him he gets nothing, he gets to die alone surrounded by people on his payroll. I feel like I've given him too much in writing this, way too much time and thought. Really anymore the only thing I take away from his tenure as an owner is that it was one of the worst runs in NBA history, and all the goat ****ing.
"Who was far and away the worst owner in NBA history?"
"OHHHH, the Goat****er, sorry don't remember his name."

Wishing cancer on people is worse than racism.

Wishing cancer to someone is impossible, so how it could be worse than racism idk.

Some very sympathetic Sterling posts now that it is known that he has cancer...He's in his 80's...41% of all Americans will develop cancer in their lifetimes...That's 130 million of us...130 MILLION, in this country alone. Yes, Cancer is horrible, and no one should wish it on anybody, but if you expect me to have sympathy for Sterling as if his cancer somehow voids his awful human rights sentiments than you can forget it...

Sympathy for the family he leaves behind is understandable though, nobody deserves to lose their father, husband, brother or whatever to cancer.

Yeah it's quite a bit worse than racism. I can't believe some of you guys are calling this karma for what he said. That's pretty pathetic...

Its not karma for what he said. It's karma for who he has been. Do some research before you blast people for not caring. DTS is the scummiest of scum and I, along w many others, do not feel bad for him in the least bit.

No one expects people to have sympathy...but laughing or making light of the situation is unnecessary. Sterling's personal feelings and him developing a cancer that almost all males will get in old age have nothing to do with each other (this is not directed at you btw, but thats what many have suggested in this thread).

Terrible human being? Oh come on, he said some racist things. That does not make him a terrible human being. Now I am not defending him as a human, but some things said on a tape does NOT make him a terrible person. He was part of the community and did donate millions of dollars throughout his tenure.

People seem to forget how old DS was... He lived in a different generation than you and I.. He lived in a generation in which being racist was more acceptable. I just simply can't call him a terrible human being because of it. My grandpa is the most caring person I've ever met, he would do anything for anyone of my family members. He would go and help a stranger without hesitation. He's an old man, lived in a different time and occasionally will say something that could be considered racist. He is in no way-shape-or-form a terrible human being.

Cancer is horrible, one of the worst things in the world. I don't wish it upon anyone.

I take it you know nothing of DS outside of these comments? Because he was a pretty terrible human being long before he made these comments. What's ironic is that the comments are what gets the most publicity when he's had far worse behavior throughout his tenor as owner. Cracka mentioned one of the more ironic ones.

For the sympathizers. I feel bad for anyone who has been close to or experienced cancer. That **** is terrible.

But take this into account.

Adolph Hitler committed suicide. Do you think any reasonable person (who was not a nazi) ever sympathized for him because they were close to someone else who committed suicide?

Sometimes bad things happen to terrible people. I'm okay with this.

Your all falling into the sympathetic story just as Sterling and his obvious PR team came up with. Not saying he deserves an we but I'm not saying he doesn't either. The way he treated minorities(not just blacks)is appalling. Your all suckers. f him and ppl the share his views wether it's a black racist or a white one. Them leaving this earth is a good thing.
And "lol" at all of his apologist.

I honestly dont give a **** he has cancer, and wont care when he dies. I dont wish it on him and im not happy about it, but I definitely don't have any sympathy for him. He's been a scumbag for a long time, this is far from an isolated incident, he doesnt deserve cancer but he doesn't deserve a shred of sympathy.

I also think its despicable that hhe's been sick for two years but only released it now as a pr move.

I think millions of people are overreacting to Sterlings comments from the beginning, but that's not surprising in today's world were even the slightest thing can be thought to be racist. were his remarks racist? yes. but as far as I know not once did he use the "N word". I think that is a big deal. I don't think he hates black people, or he would have did more to oppose them. did he think he was better than black people? likely, but he also likely felt like he was better than millions of other people from multiple races too, including white people. he probably would have had the same remarks to this girl if she had taken a picture with a white homeless man. blah blah blah don't bring those bums to my arena.
I understand the action taken by the NBA, because they were forced to based on today's society. had the NBA not taken these actions there could have been bad backlash, which could have hurt the NBA.

This cancer probably won't kill Sterling unless it is advanced. Look up prostate cancer sometimes depending on your age and what stage it is they won't even treat it in the elderly. One of my neighbors has it and they aren't even treating it due to his age and heart condition. It is very slow moving in early stages and a man Sterlings age is likely to die of something else before the cancer.

I honestly don't think it was about whether he used the N word or not, but that he was using his position of power to hold back minorities, something he has supposedly done time and again. Using the N word hurts, sure. But to me his actions and what he wants to do with his position of power throughout his history and proof he still does, is what really hits. Call someone the N word (which supposedly he has done in the past) is one thing. Use your position in a way to hold down minorities is another.

Not sure what more he could do to oppose him. He paid out the most money EVER in a housing discrimination lawsuit.
