Ten Billion? Twenty? If the L.A. Clippers are worth $2 billion, what does that mean for the Steinbrenners?

Two months ago, I couldn't have told you the name of the second NBA team in Los Angeles.

Today, they say dementia-kingpin Donald Sterling will sell his L.A. Clippers for $2 billion.

The Clippers.

Of the NBA.

Weren't they the Sacramento Conquistadors, or something like that? Or did they play in San Diego? Did they ever win an NBA championship? Did they ever have an MVP? Since when did they become a $2 billion franchise?

Sometime soon - maybe next week, when the Kendrys Morales auction begins - some MLB owner will start whining about the price of free agents, and how baseball must cap payrolls, and how the game needs an international draft, to control costs of signing Latino 16-year-olds.

The LA. Clippers are worth $2 billion. Can someone check the nitrous oxide levels on this planet?
