The NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, players and fans can all breathe a sigh of relief. Yesterday (July 28th), Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas ruled against Donald Sterling and approved the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.

The Judge Levanas ruled Shelly Sterling acted in the interest of the Sterling Family Trust, which owned the Clippers anyway.  Earlier this year, Donald Sterling was evaluated by two doctors and diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, which is why his wife stepped in and accepted the $2 billion dollar bid for the team.

That’s not all, Mrs. Sterling got another big win against her astranged husband and for more details on that, listen to Tha Wire below.  Plus, get the scoop on what Donald Sterling had to say about the verdict and how soon the Clippers sale will be finalized.

Since were talking legal issues, Kanye West won round 1 of his legal battle against the makers of the “Coinye” bitcoins that use his likeness.  Billboard reports the rap star sent a cease-and-desist letter to seven companies’ and then sued all of them for trademark-infringement in January.

Ironically, the Coinye creators thought changing their logo would help them hide, but all it did was make Kanye tighten his grip by updating his suit to include the new changes.  A few defendants lost their case by default, for failure to respond, while 3 others have already settled with the Chi-Town rapper.

Meanwhile Hypebot reports Kanye has a long way to go before he permanently kills the Coinye phenomenon.  Other brands like and are still active and even feature the taglines, “When they tell you to cease and desist, increase and resist!”
