Last night, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver stated Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA and his team would be voted to be sold. Even though Sterling has stated he has no intention of selling the team, Dr. Dre told TMZ outside of Boa Steakhouse and claimed he was interested in buying the team.
In addition to his interest in buying the team, Dre stated he shared the same sentiments towards Donald Sterling that Snoop Dogg released in his inflammatory Instagram video. While Dre is interested in buying the Clippers, he states he is unsure if he will change the name.
