Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is reportedly suffering from prostate cancer.
“They thought he would die two years ago,” one source said of Sterling, who on Tuesday was banned for life from the NBA for his now-infamous recorded racist rant. “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.”

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. In an ironic twist, Sterling refused to pay for prostate-cancer surgery a decade ago for then-Clippers assistant coach Kim Hughes.
Four Clippers players — Elton Brand, Corey Maggette, Marco Juric, and Chris Kaman — reportedly covered the cost of the procedure for their assistant coach when Sterling refused to pay.
