LA mayor foresees lengthy legal battle with Clippers owner.gif

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Sunday he expects Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling to put up a "long, protracted fight" to retain ownership of the team after being banned for life from the National Basketball Association because of racial comments.

Garcetti, appearing on CBS News' "Face the Nation" program, was asked about a potential boycott of Clippers games if Sterling balks and said, "I would certainly keep that arrow in my quiver."

“Long, protracted fight”

A three-fourths vote by the board of governors would be required to force the sale.

"I think the players feel very strongly that they have confidence in the owners to make the right decision," Johnson said. "I think the owners are going to put the Clippers in a position where this owner, Mr. Sterling, is going to have to sell the team. Whether it happens this week or next week, it's going to have to run that process."
