As I have previously discussed, Donald and Shelly Sterling are currently in court battling over the sale of the Clippers and the decision by doctors on Donald’s mental fitness. When Donald took the stand on Tuesday, he was anything but a cooperate witness for opposing counsel. He berated the 85-year-old attorney, asking him about is legal experience and criticizing his questions. He also went after the doctors involved in him being declared mentally unfit and the NBA. His angry outbursts were interrupted at least once with crying, but after regaining his composer he continued his angry rant, which lasted nearly an hour.
