  • LOS ANGELES -- A raging Donald Sterling denounced his wife, her lawyers and the NBA from the witness stand Wednesday, saying he would never sell the Los Angeles Clippers and vowing a lifetime of lawsuits against the league. Alan Pulido Mexico Jersey . "Make no mistake today," Sterling shouted toward the end of his second day of testimony in the trial to determine his wifes right to make a $2 billion deal to sell the Clippers, "I will never, ever sell this team and until I die I will be suing the NBA for this terrible violation under antitrust." He was followed to the stand by wife Shelly, who tried to approach him in the front row of the courtroom after she was done for the day. "Get away from me, you pig!" Sterling shouted. The judge then admonished him to make no further comments. Sterling began his testimony by saying he loved his wife, but then denounced her. He said she told him to have psychiatric and neurological exams only because he had turned 80, and she was concerned for his health. "She deceived me. I trusted her," Sterling said. "I never thought a wife wouldnt stand for her husband." Donald Sterlings lawyers are challenging the authority of Shelly Sterling under the family trust to unilaterally cut a deal for the team with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Before she made the deal, two doctors examined Donald Sterling and declared him mentally incapacitated and unable to act as an administrator of the Sterling Family Trust, which owns the Clippers. Sterling said he was certain his wife had never read the family trust because it was too complicated for her to understand. During examination by his own lawyer, Maxwell Blecher, Sterling was asked about his wifes position in the trust if he were to be disqualified as a trustee. "She has no rights whatsoever. She has no stock. She has no standing whatsoever," Sterling said. He also lashed out at the NBA, saying, "My wife was terrified. Shes frightened to death. She thinks the NBA will take away everything she worked for. She was scared out of her mind." The NBA banned Donald Sterling for life and moved to force him to sell the Clippers after a recorded conversation in which he made racist statements came to light earlier this year. He denied he was a racist from the witness stand when asked Wednesday. Sterling at times yelled at his own lawyer as well as the lawyer for Shelly Sterling, and threw a paper down on the witness box. He was followed to the stand by Shelly Sterling, who said she was a 50 per cent beneficiary of the family trust. When asked by her attorney Pierce ODonnell if she was "separated" from her husband of 58 years, she said "sort of." But she described herself as his principal caretaker, who takes him to medical appointments, makes sure he takes all of his pills, and is concerned for him. "Do you love your husband?" ODonnell asked. "Yes, I do," Shelly Sterling said. But she then told of seeing him in an interview on CNN and becoming frightened at his personality change. "I couldnt believe it, and I started crying," she said. "I felt so bad. I couldnt believe that was him." She said she contacted a neurologist to examine him and later a psychiatrist, thinking initially that he might have had a stroke. She said she suggested radiological tests or imaging to examine his brain, and was told eventually that he had early signs of Alzheimers. She became slightly tearful as she described her understanding of the disease, which becomes progressively worse. Her testimony is scheduled to resume Thursday. NBA owners are scheduled to vote on the Ballmer deal on July 15. Its also the day that Ballmers offer is set to expire -- and there is no deal without the judges approval of the sale. If the sale isnt completed by Sept. 15, the league said it could seize the team and put it up for auction. Jorge Campos Mexico Jersey . Vancouver is 0-2-1 over its last three games and has dropped the first two tests of a five-game homestand in regulation. The slide has damaged the clubs already fragile playoff hopes, and the Canucks enter Saturday seven points out of the Western Conferences last postseason berth with only five games left on their schedule. Alfredo Talavera Mexico Jersey . In the fourth, the Rockets -- led by James Harden and Jeremy Lin for a second straight game -- were able to finish things off.

Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins (5) – He had a brilliant game; it was a huge response for his average games before. He delivered when needed by his team; was the best player on the ice. He had huge saves on Bournival and Eller in first, Gionta on a breakaway in the second. He had elite rebound control: everything was just hitting him and dying. Huge left pad save again on Gionta in third period, great Subban pass to Weise and Rask makes a big right shoulder save. Stopped Gionta again in tight shorthanded. He was locked in all night, his positioning was outstanding. Made it look easy. Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens (5) – He had a big save on Bergeron in the first, a great reaction save on Smith in the second, handled the puck real well on wraps on boards and around net, and had three posts/crossbar plays against. He was poised, calm and cool in the third. When he was not busy, he did not lose focus on a few in-tiight shots. Gerardo Flores Jersey. Sign of tremendous mental toughness. Game-winning goal was a scramble play that was an odd bounce off the back glass to get in front. Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings (3) – He had no chance on the first goal against. He was very composed on a big save on Perrault, a glove save on Silverberg was great as well. He had no chance on Selannes back door goal. He was his acrobatic self in net, made great saves on Maroon and Perry in tight. The Lovejoy goal was a short side shelf shot, stoppable with how good his glove is. Frederik Andersen, Anaheim Ducks (3) – He was calm and cool in the net, had a big save early on in game on Voynov. He had some rebound issues with a lot of pucks, but was great at battling in-crease. He had big saves on Williams, Kopitar, and Brown. Gave them a chance to win, until his injury. Jonas Hiller, Anaheim Ducks (4) – He came in cold with under 10 minutes left in the third, made good saves on Doughty, Kopitar and Carter right away. Tough task to come in cold, but he did a solid job settling in. Bad rebound on Richards goal, but found a way to hold on. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
