Donald Sterling will inevitably have to give up the Los Angeles Clippers — but the billionaire businessman may still wage a vigorous legal battle to keep them, a panel of Newsmax contributors says.

"This can get very, very ugly, and remember Donald Sterling is himself a trial lawyer,'' C. Edmund Wright, a columnist for Breitbart.com and American Thinker, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"He can probably put up a formidable fight here if he wants to really drag it out to the bitter end.''

Story continues below video.



Peter Morici, an economist and professor at the University of Maryland, added: "I don’t think there’s any way this man can hold onto the Clippers.

"The reality is, African Americans dominate the rosters of the NBA, and they're simply not going to play on his basketball court. You can't have the basketball game without the players.''

In a phone conversation leaked to TMZ.com, a man identified as Sterling was heard telling his girlfriend not to bring African Americans to Clippers games.

A poll released Thursday by E-Poll Market Research found Sterling to be the most hated man in America, ESPN reported.

Sterling has said he'll fight the NBA's attempt to make him sell, although he has reportedly given written permission to his wife, Shelly, to unload the team. She is said to have signed an agreement to sell to former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.
