@SaneIT I agree. There are many reasons one with his wherewithal would make such a move. It really was a opportunity of a lifetime. Literally a once in a generation ( Maybe ) opportunity. Because when you own a cash cow like a Sports team in Los Angeles you never give it up !
I have been privy to the local interviews he did recently after buying the team, that is the only reason I knew about the "not being good enough to make the team as a kid " slant. I think we all can relate to that in one way or another - and anyone who has even a bit of fire in their belly carries these things with them throughout life.
So when you get a chance to "remake the ending" - IMO you take it every time. He might in the end be more interesting than the Clippers themselves. So I am going to live precarious through him ! : )
If I had 2 bil. laying around I would have done the same thing.
