But a far more intriguing person might be throwing her hat into the ring of prospective buyers: OPRAH!
According to Jeremy Schaap of ESPN, Winfrey, David Geffen, and Larry Ellison would band together for a bid should Sterling be forced to sell the team. Geffen spoke with Schaap in regards to Oprah’s interest in the Clippers:
Geffen on Winfrey’s interest: “She thinks it would be a great thing for an important black American to own (another) franchise.”
