$14 million I believe, back in the early 80's? Something like that.

People are willing to overpay for the Clippers for a couple of reasons. Owning an NBA franchise has great potential for global marketing, especially when you own that franchise in a popular city like LA. Also, I think their TV deal is getting renewed in 2015 which is expected to be a big deal.

Basically, people are willing to overpay by a lot based on potential alone.

This team won't be worth shit like it once did when they were irrelevant in a few years.

They can't even get passed the second round.

Different owner could make a huge difference though.

Someone overpaid....

If he makes a comment about a particular race in private and it's somehow made know to the public, are people going to whine and act all offended and complain about it?!?!
