Clippers franchise awarded to V. Stiviano and partners

I have a piece of news that you won't find anywhere else.

The NBA's Advisory/Finance Committee, which was not supposed to meet again until next week, convened an emergency meeting this morning and awarded the Los Angeles Clippers franchise to a new owner, stripping it from Donald Sterling and the rest of the Sterling family.

The franchise is now owned by a consortium headed by V. Stiviano. Other consortium members include Vanessa Maria Perez, Monica Gallegos, Maria Valdez, and Earvin "Magic" Johnson.

In related news, the NBA announced that it has negated its previous negation of the 2011 trade that was supposed to send Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers. As a result, Chris Paul is no longer a member of the Los Angeles Clippers and can no longer participate in the playoffs. In addition, Pau Gasol is now a member of the New Orleans Hornets for the next two months, and Lamar Odom has a job.
