Floyd Mayweather interested in buying LA Clippers from Donald Sterling

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Floyd Mayweather would be interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers, and says he and his team have the means to do it.

After the news today that the NBA has banned Donald Sterling for life following racist comments that were leaked this past week, and commissioner Adam Silver saying that he'd look to force a sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, there are plenty of potential suitors who might look to buy the team.

One of them, apparently, is Floyd Mayweather, who fights on Saturday in Las Vegas against Marcos Maidana.

From USA Today:

"I can't come in here talking about Mayweather only going to get 3% or 4%. But do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes we do. We're very, very interested in buying the Clippers. ... Me and my team want to buy the Clippers. And we can afford the Clippers."

Mayweather also refused to say anything bad about Sterling, as he's been a guest of the beleaguered team owner's at past games:

"I don't have nothing negative to say about the guy. He's always treated me with the utmost respect, he has always invited me to games, always. And he always says, 'Floyd, I want you to sit right next to me and my wife.'"

So there's one person that has nothing negative to say about Donald Sterling, anyway.

For his part, Sterling says the team is not for sale.
