When the San Antonio Spurs meet the Miami Heat in the N.B.A. finals, Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade and others will have a chance to add to substantial jewelry collections.
Donald Sterling made an agreement with the N.B.A. to “resolve all their differences” and gave his consent to a deal negotiated by his wife to sell the team that they co-own, Sterling’s lawyer said.
After a seven-game showdown in last season’s N.B.A. finals, the Heat and the Spurs left their cores intact, but they have continued adapting on the way to a rematch.
If not for a confluence of improbable events last year, the Spurs would not be on a mission for atonement, and the Heat would not be chasing a third consecutive title.
Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has agreed to sell the team for $2 billion and will drop his lawsuit against the National Basketball Association, his lawyer Maxwell Blecher said on Wednesday, five weeks after taped racist remarks Sterling made caused the NBA to ban him for life.
Mark Jackson admitted on Wednesday that “everybody’s not made for New York City” in relation to working for or coaching the Knicks.
