Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has lost his lawsuit to block the sale of the team to incoming owner Steve Ballmer, according to a tweet from the Associated Press. The $2B sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, negotiated by Sterling's wife, Shelly, can now be turned over to the NBA's Board of Governor's for official approval.

Sterling is still suing the league for $1B for what he believed to be hypocritical and illegal action by Adam Silver and the rest of the owners in the NBA when Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers was terminated, and his wife sold the team to Ballmer. It is believed that these cases will be dropped.
