The death cast a pall on what has been a joyous season for the Clippers, normally an NBA doormat but now among the league's best teams. The team is in first place in its division and had a franchise-record 17-game winning streak that was snapped Tuesday.

Sterling, 77, a billionaire real estate mogul who purchased the team in 1981, and wife Shelley released a statement thanking friends for sympathy, asking for privacy and saying their son was diabetic, but did not indicate what role, if any, that may have played in his death.

Sad.....the guy would've been filthy rich the rest of his life if he lived to be 1,000 years old and he had the world at his feet but didn't have the brains to stay away from drugs......I feel sorry for him and his family R.I.P
