Yao Ming Refutes Report He's Putting Together Group To Buy Clippers 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat May 24, 2014 5:14 pm

Yao Ming refuted a report that he is working to put together a group to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers when the team ultimately becomes for sale.


“I just heard about it in the morning my time,” Yao said Saturday via email. “I really don’t know where this news came from.”


ESPN reported that Yao was putting together a group of Chinese investors to bid for the Clippers.


Yao owns the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Aww that's too bad. I was looking forward to seeing him back in the NBA somehow.

I have heard over a dozen stupid "putting together group" stories. I doubt anyone in any of them, will get Clippers.

I am gonna laugh if Clippers go back to old ways after losing Sterling as an owner. They were finally getting it, and now with new management you never know.

Is ESPN creating their own headlines again?
