@jastroff From what I understand he still hold his shares and he will have just as much influence as he wants I would believe - Without question.
@SaneIT I agree. There are many reasons one with his wherewithal would make such a move. It really was a opportunity of a lifetime. Literally a once in a generation ( Maybe ) opportunity. Because when you own a cash cow like a Sports team in Los Angeles you never give it up !
I have been privy to the local interviews he did recently after buying the team, that is the only reason I knew about the "not being good enough to make the team as a kid " slant. I think we all can relate to that in one way or another - and anyone who has even a bit of fire in their belly carries these things with them throughout life.
So when you get a chance to "remake the ending" - IMO you take it every time. He might in the end be more interesting than the Clippers themselves. So I am going to live precarious through him ! : )
If I had 2 bil. laying around I would have done the same thing.
Thanks for the email address Michael ! I see your point, between the filters and the assistants the chance is relatively low that he will actually read it but he might - so here's my chance ! : )
He might rue the day he let it out if things go south for the Clippers but I thought it was a nice jester to the fan base, A new day of openness and transparency in L.A. ?
I hope so. The city could use a good example of civil involvement.
