FILE - JULY 28, 2014: A California judge has issued a preliminary ruling against Donald Sterling that would allow his wife Shelly Sterling to sell the NBA Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer for $2 billion, according to published reports. OAKLAND, CA - APRIL 27: Shelly Sterling, the wife of Donald Sterling owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, watches the Clippers against the Golden State Warriors in Game Four of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2014 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on April 27, 2014 in Oakland, California.

Former Commissioner David Stern praised the NBA's handling of the Donald Sterling controversy and predicts it will ''end well'' for the league. Stern said his successor, Adam Silver, has been ''forceful'' but also ''demonstrated a compassionate side'' in his reaction to the racist remarks that were made by the Los Angeles Clippers owner. He has been forceful, he has been reflective, he has been buttoned-down and I think he has also demonstrated a compassionate side as well,'' Stern told The Associated Press on Wednesday during a phone interview. Sterling's wife, Shelly, later agreed to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for a record $2 billion, a transaction the league believes will close shortly even as Donald Sterling continues trying to fight in court.
