The Queen of all Media doesn’t want to stop there. Variety has reported that billionaire, Oprah Winfrey is in talks with fellow moguls, David Geffen and Larry Ellison to make a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers if the team becomes available.
Following NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver’s announcement of the lifetime ban and fine of current owner, Donald Sterling – Oprah has expressed interest in the team (although she denied said interest in an interview with TMZ). The NBA plans to rally other owners to force Silver to sell the team following his tape recorded racist and discriminatory rants.
I find it wonderfully and beautifully ironic if Oprah purchases the team considering she is Black and a woman. I know that Silver will be turning over in his soon-t0-be grave (too harsh?).
What do you think about Lady O buying the Clippers? SOUND OFF!
