Oprah to Buy Los Angeles Clippers?!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It's no fun owning a pro sports franchise when you can't even attend the games, so with the LA Clippers' Donald Sterling being banned from the NBA for life, it's safe to assume he'll be selling the team soon. 

Several celebrities have expressed an interest in investing in the Clippers in the likely event that Sterling is forced to sell, but there may only be one with the cash and clout to buy the team outright: Queen Oprah.

Winfrey announced yesterday that she intends to make a bid on the team if an when the Clippers hit the auction block.

Speaking with ESPN, possible co-investor David Geffen stated that Oprah "does not intend to run the team," but simply "thinks it would be a great thing for an important black American to own the franchise."

As one of the richest women in the world, Oprah could likely make the purchase on her own, but she's reached out to Geffen and Oracle CEO Larry Ellison to form a billionaire power trio that will likely be able to outbid any other potential buyers. 

Other celebs who have expressed an interest in buying the Clippers include Sean Combs, Floyd Mayweather, and Oscar De La Hoya.

Given her reputation for generosity, we're guessing Blake Griffin and company are hoping Lady O will be their new boss. "You get a car to dunk over, you get a car to dunk over...."

Mother Effer!

I pray that Oprah does win the Bid, but on the other hand, I pray that there isn't any under handing agenda of her/others having this secret agenda to take over together to many hands in the pot could be damaging to the Brand of the game. I am quite sure there are so many other friends who want to be part ownership of this team. A team that is a good team and a big profit. Oprah, is very tight with Jayz/Bey,Terry Perry,Wicked Cursed Kardashians, and many other people, of interest. ok I am quite sure there are a whole lot of other people who are as well Billionnaires/Trilionnaires who can't wait to get their bid in front row, and want a piece of owning this team. It is truly sad that this team could not come to OWN themselves on being their Own NBA Boss. It would be the first but it would make sense for the team come together and buy out the BIDS on their own team. The team is a Family, and when problems arises it is when the interest of the whole Family/TEAM, should come together and should step their game up with a strategy to own themselves. Prayers to the whole team, I do wish all well. Remember it is not always about the Money "It will always be about the Love,and Passion of playing the Game,and most of ALL FAMILY." God Bless.
