LOS ANGELES, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- During 58 years of marriage and more than three decades as a co-owner of the Clippers, Shelly Sterling stayed out of the limelight. But in a time of crisis, she stepped out of the shadows to do what was right for her family, for the Clippers and for all of Los Angeles. We owe her a great debt of gratitude. She had the courage to stand up against her husband, take control of the Clippers, negotiate a record-shattering $2 billion price and go to court to preserve the sale of the team.
Upon hearing the verdict in court today, Shelly broke down in tears because she is overjoyed about the outcome. She is happy to hand this team over to an extraordinary new owner in Steve Ballmer. She is happy for Doc Rivers, the players, the fans, the NBA and the sponsors. This is a precedent-setting decision. It's a new day in Los Angeles for the Clippers. In so many ways, it's a classic Hollywood ending.
