Warriors' plan aims to allow 50% fan capacity
"Year. We should have something to cheer about. But now, of course No fans or will there be? Or in the ESPN. Ramona Shelburne. Warriors have a plan a very expensive plan. Get 50% capacity at Chase Center this year. If you might be saying deter, how the hell are they going to do that? And I asked the same question. And I'm still pretty skeptical that they can pull this off because as of yesterday or maybe even the day before that, I believe they just rolled back. Lot of openings that we were doing here in the city of San Francisco. Situation is not getting better. Getting worse. We're not going to get into the nitty gritty of that. Because that is something I'm not fully qualified to do, Nor probably are you unless you are. George Rutherford, Dr Jordan Rutherford Police feel free to call in Anyway, KNBR. Warriors want to get 50% capacity. At Chez Center. And here's How Joe Lake up who, by the way Bio tech billionaire public health. Degree from U C. L A nose a little bit about. This has a little bit of expertise in this area. I wouldn't say he's epidemiologists or anything like that. I wouldn't put him in charge of the Coronavirus task force. Or anything like that, but certainly more qualified than myself. To figure out how to get 50% capacity. At Chase Center. Now bear with me hear it does get a little In the weeds. But when we're talking about this, we need to be specific about what the hell's going on. This information is important, even if it is a little dense. I'll do my best here but bear with me. The plan is Lakers going to spend $30 million Which you might say That's chump change. That's an Andrew Wiggins. The test every fan employees and player Media to be determined. I would imagine that he's not going to spend the money on us Can't really blame him. Of course, you will have masks and you will have distancing. But the plan is they're going to use a rapid PCR test. So the PCR test that's the deep one right where they get real up in the nose. Those were supposed to be about 99% accurate Now, Joe Lake Up, says he's gotta read. He's got a He's got a guy. He's got a plug. You can get him rapid PCR tests. That means 20 minutes or so you could get an answer, as opposed to what we saw with Major League baseball, where it's 24 hours later, which worked out great at the end of the World Series. I mean bang up job. Think about the amount of times that baseball had a problem this year because of the delay. We're going from 24 hours to 20 minutes. And you might go. We already have rapid testing like that, Peter, we do. There. Auntie Gin tests. Now this is this is the difference. The PCR is the 99% 1. So that's finding any kind of the virus. In your nose. Going up in there finding some of the virus. And then through technology being able to figure out, you know. If you have it or not, If you can't find it after the amplifying, amplifying, amplifying, amplify you don't have it. You got a little bit it. The anti Jin tests are different. They're looking for something that is bound. To the virus. Basically, you have to be shedding the virus in order for the anti Jin test to succeed. Now, those tests are very fast. Take like 10 15 minutes, right? You could get a result. If you're shedding the virus, you probably are showing some symptoms. And so it's estimated. But there is a 30 to 50% miss rate. With these rapid auntie gin tests. Which at a certain point you're like, Why are we bothering with him? Why are we spending all this money? The PCR is the way to go to believe to be 99% accurate. If we could have a situation where the PCR test He's going as fast as the anti gene tests. I don't know about you. But 99% is a lot better than 50% or even 70% on its best day. The Joe Lake up once rapid PCR tests for every fan player and employees. On day of game. Now. I don't know what it's not like You could put everybody in a room in test. Um, just sit around. Mean Chase Center has a great filtration from everything I heard. I heard that well before you know, we really cared about filtration because that was something I cared about him. Big fan, big fan of ventilation. I think they can change out. The air and Chase Center four times an hour like change out the entirety of the air, which seems like a pretty good thing to do. You could also have nothing but outside air coming in. Really let it flow. And I say that would be a good plan. But these rapid PCR tests are the difference. And then George Rutherford. The After mentioned George Rutherford public health expert saying This is as close to a perfect plan as I've seen

"If you like walk by the lobby like there's nobody it's just pictures and donald sterling and there's clippers paraphernalia. It's kind of amazing and then you just take the elevator up to the top floor in the house but there's no other type picture. Every big building building allows plaza right now when you said the lobby i'm picturing the terrorist. Go in and shoot the. I'm picturing all of this. It's not told reporters with like it's like this great art deco buildings beautiful like obviously the luigi louis mayor corporation was pleased with this but like that was donald sterling he always got the better under the deal like he always found this like setting up a deal to his advantage anyway so like his headquarters are like down the street from that neiman marcus so it's not unreasonable reasonable that they would be there. That's like there where the restaurants i'll go to our. It's not like that unreasonable. They would all be in the same area but they run into each other. They have what's pretty gross rose confrontation outside yelling and screaming. I don't think there was a real cat fight between eighty shelly sterling n._b._c. beyond but like it was uncomfortable and that's that's when shelly sterling decides they don't want us okay because he doesn't guys but i'm doing her yeah allegedly right i'm going to sued girl okay and so she she she files a lawsuit and to get back all of the gifts that donald sterling had had given to visa vian over over the years and this is actually not an uncommon move sterling's they had done this with previous mistresses and one and so we have a template for the love that i love that line from the from one of their one of the people in the podcast. She's like mayday. Malone who is comes in for the save but shelley had done this in the past and like it'd be had just just been on her last nerve. She was a provocateur. She was like i'm going around and going to be i wanna be mistiming and the opening scene is is they get into the confrontation. She sues her the next stay and within that lawsuit veal's pressure. She's trying to get her to drop the lawsuit and the tapes that she's been making of sterling since september literally september hundreds and hundreds of hours taste but at this point five months yes that's right and those become evidence in this trial and didn't mind turning them over as evidence because to her this was like why they should settle the lawsuit so she should be able to keep all the gifts because she assumed that they would never want them to see the light of day. I just had never heard this anecdote before <hes> and so when i heard it honestly you know what the inspiration was like. Julia <hes> henderson flew out and we we did like two or three we do like two weeks at a time together and just sit she would get an airbnb and we would just sit and talk story and writing and everything and i i said you know how we should start at this is that that confrontation outside and he and marcus because it's kind of everything and it reminded me. I don't know if you listen to slow burn. That was great podcast about <hes> <hes> there's two. There's been two seasons. There's gonna be another one coming up. <hes> the first one was about watergate the second was about monica lewinsky and bill clinton and the opening of slow burn season two is is this sting operation on linda tripp. Got monica come to the mall that day when the f._b._i. Ends up questioning monica and it's just like this great moment that no one has heard about but it puts you in that suburban mall where the f._b._i.

It's a fair i i actually i thought there would be <hes> yeah a little higher than me too but i don't think he's happy to get paid. I it's interesting. It's initiative. I was the one thing i will say is he. Now becomes one of i don't mean to exaggerate it. I think he becomes one of the half dozen most important players in the n._b._a. And because it becomes like what not stylistically but like the level of flare that siachen was the guy who's like yeah. He's in the conversation for an all star. Spa misses it but he's in the conversation if if he becomes that then when durant dan comes back they have a chance to be a great team if he's stagnates and is just what he is looking pretty good player great weeks. So-so weeks doesn't really do much if if he's if then then then they're sealing his all or i agree it's nice there. He is their most important player in that sense anyway you open the thirty for thirty <hes> ooh with this incredible anecdote that i don't think i've ever heard before and you can describe what it is. My question to view is did. Did you learn about it. When shelly told you about it immediately say to yourself. Oh my god. That's the opener now okay so i had i heard about it. We'll we'll we'll talk okay so the opening of the thirty for thirty starts with <hes> a confrontation between shelly sterling and beast of viana so if you don't remember just google she had the visor in the roller skates and she is his silly rabbit.

That's literally how he felt the league work i mean he was a real estate guy and he just thought of players in terms of the same way he thinks of apartment buildings lake. You could just buy a better apartment building. They were like investments. That's why he was always like mad at baron. Davis davis like oh. I bought a more expensive. I invested in this apartment building and it's not paying off. It also revealed that it revealed correctly when elgin baylor for do correctly titian metallica like i buy them. I it showed immediately early on again. It was no secret how this guy viewed other human beings so here's what the big question was is like what could they and should they have done about donald sterling all those years okay and i think that's where the reckoning that's where if i had david stern in a room i would've pushed him right. You know just said no. Thanks yeah obviously we asked several times right and we even look for a lot of our kyle to see if anybody ever pushed him like after the housing discrimination suits did did anybody push him at a state of the union press conference they do every year at all star the finals no couldn't find it the people you know. I love anything that saves me time hiring not something i've really had to do but i've heard it is very challenging..

"I think that's a good sign because i think he knows it and i think when you're quiet that means that it's it's your brew time. You know you're throwing something now price now i think he kind of in <hes> enjoyed not the right word because he is a competitor at the core. I think the april may and june off was refreshing to him. I would say that that he asked that the grind wasn't there it does. He didn't miss miss it but i think he realized that there was something about and he took it feel like that. When you have a big project right and you go deep into something and you put everything into it and then it's over. There's a sense of like fatigue and needing to like let yourself fill back up with motivation and energy to take on something big again like the man literally went to eight straight finals. That's like putting yourself into into <hes> deep going deep for eight straight years and never really having much downtime to recover cover he finally did and now let's see how he plays with that chip on his shoulder with that renewed motivation to redeem himself and remind people he still king james the question will be we will his body go along with it. I guess last one for you ramona before i let you go is the best team in the west here. In los angeles yeah yeah. I mean the rockets with with added to that. I love that mix i do. I really liked that. Hong has made itself better denver verse basically running it back and they were the two seed. I understand golden state is. I don't want to count out the warriors yet. I'm one of those warriors believers. I still think that i wouldn't be surprised at dollop there near the top of the west and in the western conference finals again like here's here's the painting i i paint for los angeles sports fans on this show and by the way we even mentioned portland either who i which i love okay. Is that lakers clippers. They're all excited. Let's just say each of them wins fifty five right. Let's just put it out there. Fifty five while the warriors minus clearly durant. They're gonna use to know clay on occasion asian. We know curry will be out just for a few games whatever dream on mike as well as trying to get the mix together but they cobble together forty eight eight wins forty-seven maybe fifty there the sixth seed oh for three seated clave clippers or lakers team. How does that taste right. I mean like you could literally. I i mean the warriors are like the team. No one's gonna wanna play but remember this. They're going into that new building in san francisco this this is this would be a natural like sabbatical year where they've been to five straight finals. They need to the clays injured. Let's not push it but you can't do that moving into that that new building in that new in that rebrand with these guys who are a little stung that kevin durant left. They've got something to prove that they didn't this wasn't just that they won without him mm-hmm right and they can win without him again so i don't see the drop off for the warriors i don't and i i still think anybody who writes them off is at their their own payroll yeah. I don't think that the league does either thirty for thirty podcasts from e._s._p._n. And the undefeated present the sterling affairs you can get it right now.

"Did for the clippers i mean she she really feels like she was standing up for women who had been who whose husbands have done similar things to them and it doesn't take psychologist to to look at the situation and say yes you can be angry at the other woman but whereas the anger at your husband has been for doing this in the first place. I think he's still working through that. I think that's why she listened to the tapes. I think she understands it but you know you've made these compromises compromises a long time ago and she has a pretty good explanation for herself. Even if you you know we all may not like it right. It's it's you know and i said said this julia my producer so many times. My mom always said you never know what's inside another person's marriage.

"Paolo. Di with players free agents. When you you built a reputation you use that platform with the clippers shoe make yourself appealing somewhere else in the league and he got out of there so i think what was there. Were two things that you you look at the way the clippers would do businesses that anybody anybody really good in. This industry is not going to work like that for too long. They're not gonna work without a contract without stability or well below market value when they can get so much more elsewhere and i remember i covered those years with neil and mike dunleavy and mike mike actually went to court with donald and one because mike was wealthy enough independently league to be able to say no. You know what actually can starve just as long as you can but it's like we can we can we can have the lawyers duke it out for years and like i don't need the paycheck right away away so we can we can be in court and he actually he did it long enough and he was successful and you got a pretty big settlement out of everybody get paid everything and then some <hes> neil had no choice but to leave. He's he was too good and stirling didn't wanna pay him and it got to that. That was kind of the story of that era of like like you said. Free agents used to do that now. The the top front office guys we're we're doing that but the irony of the two thousand fourteen season where the state with the tapes come out and they blow up that donald had finally started getting out of with the way he'd finally started letting his front office doc rivers and andy rozier at that time and started to just minimize donald he you know they they figured out how to manage him and then one of the i'm sure you you cover this at the time. When she took the job he knew exactly what he was getting into. He had language put into his contract to make sure sure that if you ever got fired sterling wouldn't be able to do that and that he had personnel power and one of the first to me. One of the wild stories i've reported on was and it was that era it was at that time he was docs. I was docks. I thought he had left boston and free agency had come and they had done a sign and trade with milwaukee phoenix and the clippers. I and bledsoe goes to the sons and j._j. Radic who people kind of forget he was in milwaukee for a few months after orlando traded him they do a sign and trade. They agree to a five-year deal <hes> or four-year deal excuse me with j._j. Rettig and there's the moratorium period and all of a sudden donald starts to change his mind about signing j._j. Redick and the reason why he didn't pay that much money to a white player and the thinking would go for a racist and avowed racist like donald sterling was while you'd think he just wanted team of white players but his narrow mind thought well really only african american players can play this game. I i don't wanna white player <hes> <hes> because they're not as good in basketball. He had all these racial stereotypes and anybody who's ever worked on that front office. If you wanted to try to draft an international player or sell them on eric piontkowski in the first round that was a tough sell with donald sterling because of his racial views like in you get into this. This was some of the most compelling pelling <hes> material in there and blake griffin talked about it about the players as he would parade through the locker room and physically manhandle the players touch their bodies showed them off to his friends and women who've come role in the locker room with them as though these were show horses or something nothing worse than that that that he just he'd grab their muscles and feel their muscles it was dehumanizing and that's the prism with which donald sterling solve ask ball and so here's this three-way trade with three teams. You've got like you know. These teams have all committed to this his deal j._j. The markets dried up j._j. Redick has a contract an agreement and there was a window of about forty eight..

"Where in the end they had to settle for thirty cents or forty cents on the dollar off of guaranteed contracts in the n._b._a. They allowed that to go on and and they were complicit in what donald did with contracts and coaches and every once in a while you'd hear in the later years of since i was carrying the league when when this would be going on in the coaches association which sort to get together and say hey how about no-one go for the clippers job like nobody just don't go for the joe of course people are gonna go for the job is one of thirty and it didn't work so the one of the guys i talked to in the podcast who talked to off the air but he wanted to do the podcasts at that and i don't blame him was bill fitch okay. The bill. Fitch was a legendary coach. You know in in the college ranks one of those coaches who donald fired and didn't pay and just had to settle and the guy it. There's a there's a famous quote from phil jackson about donald sterling where he said i'm one of those guys from the sixties believes in karma and he was talking about the clipper curse and that to fill is referencing because he played for bill fitch at north dakota he was real close with him and people in the coaching profession knew this about sterling the and resented him for it right like coaches tried to stick a further coaches <hes> and there was the sense that like if you treat people this badly it's just gonna to continue to be a problem right and one of my early experiences. That reporter was covering what happened with mike dunleavy. Remember that one he dunleavy dunleavy gets ousted <hes> but dunleavy kinda was was wise to this and he was one of the guys who really tried to turn around the clippers. I think he they gave him a lot of power and he he helped really change the franchise and the neil replaces him and then neil actually got a meeting with lebron james back in two thousand ten incredible for the clippers they actually put a press release police out about getting a meeting with lebron because it was to be able to be at the table with them was credibility that that was an era of blake was there and then they aerial all-share made the chris paul trade and he drafted eric bledsoe and <hes> you know he in vinny del negro's coach went to the play offseason. Neil left again. I think donald was paying number game right. He was paying them to be two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year which even some seven years ago is still way below market value paul allen offered it'd probably quadrupled in portland and and he left in he he you know if it was like paolo..

"Question. I'll throw your way and if you can't answer totally understand because we wanted to watch and listen to the talk has obviously but you talk about them being back together now. She wanted to sell clearly he did not does she give you any indication that she has regrets about selling the clippers particularly considering that she's back together with him not to mention outta clippers and looking right now yeah i you know i talked to her about it and i and there's this weird storyline where like donald would like to back in the league and maybe had some made some. I'm called on his behalf. There and everyone in the league is like no that is never going to happen and she actually says you you know look donald has a sense of relief about it now because owning the clippers was something that he did for most of his life. It made him somebody in this town if he he doesn't own the team he's just another rich guy l._a. But you know it was also a huge source of stress for him because they were the worst franchise in sports for a lot of years he he took a lot of that criticism. It couldn't have felt good and now that he's done with this. He can just sit back and enjoy his two billion dollars that they made on the sale. How is it for them when you consider the clippers right now i'm talking about steve bommer. I mean i mean unless you blake griffin. Practically everybody likes the baltimore. There's nothing to say about doc rivers. He's a future hall of fame coach. We all know that or the and when you mention the clippers clippers you must say at this particular moment of time ramon you notice better than most first class actually applies to them their first class organization. I mean that's zombie games though like if you if you if you if you're a games in l. a. i would say she goes to about a fifth of the game she has seen in court where she always did was part of the deal. She guy like ten seats to every game and she doesn't go out as much as she used to. She's not really embraced by everybody there but i think she regrets not having the team and should not having that stage but i think they they understand that this they sold it and this is a different era. What was funny is like she's. She's really up on it like she's still watches the games we talk at night and she she'd hang up. She's like how the games on the games on honey. I gotta go wow so we're talking to ramona shelburne right here with steven e._s._p._n. Radio e._s._p._n. News so it all of that being said if there's something that that that we you predict we'll all the story. What would it be well. I think this is the beginning of the player empowerment era okay you can you can go back and find other moments right where we're players start to speak out but you were right there on the ground when this happened players were going to boycott playoff game and if for lebron james to step in front of the cameras and say there is no place for donald sterling in this league on the morning after those those tapes was released right now we all look at that and say yeah of course there's no place for donald sterling in this league the the manson incredibly racist horrible things but in that moment that was a watershed moment for players in this league and it was also a defining moment for adam silver because he listened to those players and doc rivers was able to keep everybody together others so that the league did not just shut down. There's a story. That's a companion piece up on e._s._p._n. Right now where i caught a lot of people from the warriors andre iguodala rick wells bob myers wires they were ready to walk out with the clippers to and if adam silver doesn't ban him for life on the morning of game five. I don't know that the players on either team would've played..

"Beautiful. Women want to be around me but the other name. It makes perfect sense. <hes> in lots subways was donald trump. Yeah i mean there's literally story that donald sterling was very proud of that calls him the west coast trump. I mean that is who aspired to be and i think from a character standpoint it was fascinating the more i learned right so so donald sterling jerry buster both self made men right they both come from poverty jerry buses from wyoming and he works. There's all these stories of him working on the railroad and teaching himself chemistry and they coming out up to u._s._c. and building a career <hes> i i was like as a chemist and then in real estate. Donald sterling actually has a very similar backstory. He is a poor jewish. Wish kid growing up in boyle heights which is east l._a. And puts he's really smart. Put himself through law. School becomes a titan in l._a. Real estate they they start kind of going in the same circles jerry boston donald sterling and they are they get to this place where you have a lot of money and it's about what are you going to do with it right so donald sterling one point had before anybody knew him he had changed his last name from toko wits which is the very obvious jewish name to donald sterling and started to talk to people around town about wanting to run for political office and put all that in the podcast but we had a number where people told me that he was he considered that at one point in his career and was going to the forum club and seeing kind and what jerry buss hadn't. I don't know if people know that whole story of donald actually loaning jerry buss the last three billion dollars he needed to buy the lakers from jack kent cooke <hes> but those first a couple of years in the in the eighties. I mean the lakers were everything it was like showtime. They were winning the forum club studio fifty four on the west coast and for a guy like sterling who clearly wanted not just to be rich but to be famous to be a celebrity which is what a lot of people in l._a. Want let's be real okay. People come down for a lot of reasons but most of them involve fame and fortune sterling was just drawn by that and decides all by a team and jerry jerry. Buss is the one who vouches for him with the league <hes>. There's a lot of really good back stories that we didn't get to go. We didn't get to cover because if you wanted those other five episodes this is what that would be about but <hes> you know those funds stories how actually he buys the team from a guy named irv levin who had done a strange swap with the celtics where like he sterling actually isn't a position where because he takes on irv levin's debts he doesn't feel like paying any of those dads and there's all these old boston celtics players who he doesn't pay like he owes owes money and pensions john havlicek and habits like us to get paid by levin but when donald sterling takes on the team he just stops paying him that was that was always the case clipper coaches. You'd get fired. Assistant coaches would get fired. Head coaches would get fired and donald was always willing rolling to a and you get into this <hes>. I'll i'll weary out in court like like you and you have these coaches who are living paycheck to paycheck checking assistants who were making you know at different times forty or fifty or sixty thousand a year where.

"I would absolutely dive into them on my drive home from bristol. I'd listen to another five episodes of it. <hes> ah the podcast is remarkable. You've been working on it in some ways. You've been working on this for years but tell me this ramona <hes> the idea to tell the story the way you have in a podcast format to make it five parts which and even in the beginning beginning. I wondered what i feel like. I know this story pretty well. I covered it. No uncovered a quite like you did but but i covered it and and was around for all of it. I don't know if this would. I don't know if there's parts in this for me that are going to keep me riveted and it was riveting. It was was absolutely riveting so i think i was always drawn to the soap opera right the the donald and shelly marriage and the very strange love triangle goalby with visa fianna right people remember visa viana with the with the visor and stuff on roller skates and and i knew behind the scenes how that played into everything like how we even got here and that's always what hooked me into the story and and then as i'm reporting on this. I realize wait the n._b._a. Tried to kick him out thirty years ago and it didn't take eight like they voted him out but he kinda got out of it because the league still come needed him and they just sent alan rothenberg and to babysit and to make everything look good and he just kind of moved the team to los angeles despite the league opposing it and they find him a little bit and you just did it anyway. I mean the league has been trying to get rid of donald sterling for thirty years. So why did it take this and you look at the history of it and you get into this. You know in the more the more i dug into this there. There was one thing that jumped out at me and i think it was really important that i don't know if he would've you can get unless you live in los angeles and you have seen both teams teams up close for most of your my life which i have. I grew up with all teams. <hes> but magic johnson seemed to be a very very strange and personal trigger for donald sterling magic. Johnson is the person in the instagram post that visa viana house us where donald freaks out donald as i don't bring i don't care who you socio with but don't put them in your instagram posts and it's it's the picture sure with magic that sets him off right and then later on when he does his interview with anderson cooper he's doing okay. I wouldn't say he's doing good off the ed gic right and then he goes off the rails on magic and i'm like what is it about magic. That's such a trigger for him that that seems really personal and and i started asking around in l. a. and i go oh. It's because donald and jerry buss are very much the same profile right there like virtually the same age and jerry buss has this very real relationship with magic johnson as a son to him right <hes> he has real success whereas donald has been pretty much searching his entire adult life for real respect invalidation and not the kind so you just buy and force people into go into your silly parties and hiring fake paparazzi for well one of the things you explored in this ramona that i was very well aware of. I think the two people maybe the two most prominent people in donald sterling's adult life that he wanted to be now jerry buss. I knew that right he wanted he would go the laker in and you have the stories of him going to the forum aurum club and seeing the parties in the women and seeing the women attracted to dr bus and thinking in his mind. Hey if i have have a team in l._a. That's a way for me to have beautiful..

"E._s._p._n. Radio <hes> so first question shelly sterling what was the best of what she gave you as you remember one of the craziest scandals in sports history <hes> what about what she gave when she remembered or so you like what she's doing now know what you remembered like the interesting part savoy alley sterling gave you in your reporting on this so i oh i think the the story that people don't realize the back story of it. All was the triangle the love triangle between and i don't know if i wanna use the word love really okay but we are drying between her. <hes> donald sterling's mistress because obviously donald sterling it had a lot of mistresses interests over the years but there was something different about the like an nastiness and then aggressiveness v that he had their mistresses didn't really have and it's one of <hes> starts with one of these confrontations where they were walking outside and even marcus and beverly hills and donald there would be some of her friends. It's like entourage 'cause it's not usually donald in the mistress donald mistress and her friends right <hes> and she runs into shelley and they have a pretty pretty nasty confrontation outside of this name and marcus and that's the one that where you know after they had such a bad relationship like the come to games. Oh you know kind of be up in her face. She would follow her into the bathroom and they things like i'm gonna own this team and i'm gonna be mrs sterling and <hes> i mean you know there's this is sort of like code among this this is and and and they're very very much older richard guy like you know you don't bring the wife into it right. You know rub of it. The wife's faith indeed and adhere to that so when they have this confrontation outside of the market that really takes things to a new level and that's the next x day is when shelley sues bianco and says. I want everything donald ever given her back. That's my community property as much as his and she shouldn't. You have anything and that lawsuit of course is what leads us to the releasing the tape v. has hundreds of hours of tapes and some of them with some some of which makes donald sterling was terrible <hes> and if sally doesn't do her and then or if shelly would have dropped a loss at some point. I don't think those tastes ever come out but yeah. That was these leverage. What was donald sterling's dating life. How would you encapsulate it in clarity second <music> dating life. Can we call it dating. <hes> you know he always had a much younger woman on his arm and some of these relationships felt like <hes> they felt like affairs but the description that the women involved with give later on in court depositions. They seem a lot more than that. There was there's a lot of descriptions of bathing him putting his socks on raviv. Stamos line was like he's just silly. Rabbit mean like we're just rabbits kind kinda like there was this <hes> you hear them arguing on tapes about what their relationship was and i don't know if you could describe it as love laws something <music> sicker something i mean there's definitely equality where like like younger women to mother him away ramona shelburne with us on e._s._p._n.
