Anyone that has ever suffered with or known someone that has attempted to work their way through drug addiction understands that the creation of that affliction usually doesn’t stem from trying to have a good time. There are myriad factors that go into willingly attempting to break the law in order to impair your usual state. This is why each and every one of us should slow down and consider our own influences as we take to the news that Scott Sterling, son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, has been found dead of a reported drug overdose.
The 32-year-old was found in his Malibu apartment, just south of Pepperdine University, on New Year’s Day. CBS Los Angeles was the first to break the news:
Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives were sent to an apartment in the 22600 block of Pacific Coast Highway around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday on a welfare check, authorities said.
When deputies arrived, they found the body of 32-year-old Scott Sterling inside the unit.
“Sheriff’s Homicide and Los Angeles County Coroner’s personnel at this time believe that Sterling died of an apparent drug overdose,” Deputy Guillermina Saldaña said.
For years Ball Don’t Lie has taken great offense to Donald Sterling’s work both in and away from the NBA’s arena. It nearly goes without saying that this isn’t the time nor forum to continue that tone.
