    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has pulled his support from a deal to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and will pursue his $1 billion federal lawsuit against the NBA, his attorney said Monday.

    "We have been instructed to prosecute the lawsuit," said attorney Maxwell Blecher. He said co-owner Donald Sterling would not be signing off on the deal to sell.

    Donald Sterling issued a one-page statement dated Monday titled "The Team is not for Sale" and said that "from the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers."

    Sterling has always been a litigious fuck... I never really thought he'd go away quietly.

    And even if he wins without a dime of legal fees, he will make half what he would have had he just sold the team (admittedly, less taxes).

    With a potential $600mill in tax savings, it is well worth it to him to drop $100million on a lawsuit.
