May 19 (The Sports Xchange) - The NBA initiated a charge seeking to terminate Donald Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers and set a hearing for June 3, the league announced on Monday. The league statement said that if the NBA Board of Governors sustains the charge by a three-fourths vote, all ownership interests in the Clippers will be terminated and the team will be sold to new owners.
