After a long battle to retain his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers, is Donald Sterling ready to wave the white flag? Maybe. According to ESPN, Sterling met with Steve Ballmer on Monday to "discuss the pending $2 billion sale of the franchise." Even though there was no settlement reached, both sides reportedly had a "friendly conversation." Following a lengthy, three-hour meeting with estranged wife Shelley, Donald requested the face-to-face conversation with Ballmer to discuss the state of the Clippers and in the video below obtained by TMZ, Ballmer seemed to be in good spirits in the moments after his time with Sterling.   

 

Maybe that's the look of someone who is about to be an NBA owner? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
