Does Clippers owner Donald Sterling have cancer? The New York Post reports that he does.
Sterling is allegedly battling prostate cancer, according to Page Six. The NBA banned Sterling after recordings of his racist comments about black people to his "archivist," V. Stiviano, were published on TMZ.
An unnamed source told the Post, “They thought he would die two years ago. ... People have been predicting his imminent demise. I’m sure he has the best ... drugs money can buy. He can do anything to keep himself alive.”
Sterling's medication is supposedly the reason why his face looks puffy.
The Post added that Sterling has allegedly been calling friends to beg them to say he is not racist. Sources also told Page Six that Sterling still does not believe his comments were all that incendiary.
