Ballmer was able to work out a deal with Shelly (foundation, tickets, parking, etc.); harder to do that with Donald and his lifetime ban.
Sometimes doing the right thing requires you to "deal with all of it" so deal with it and do what's right.
Lets say Kobe makes $10 million a year. What roster do you build with Plan B Free Agents? Bledsoe and Stephenson?
Also, whats not mentioned is how Melo was impressed that the Lakers take care of their stars and didn't ask KB to take major pay-cut.
Don't get the "It's Kobe's fault because he took too much $." Even w/ cap space. LeBron and Melo aren't coming to LA.
Today's meeting btwn Ballmer and DTS was scheduled late Sunday night and was part of the reason Monday morning was such a light day in court
The meeting between Donald and Ballmer was arranged late Sunday night, after Donald and Shelly met for 3 hours on Sunday afternoon

Anwar Zakkour from Bank of America will also testify tomorrow, likely about the revocation of the bank loan.
Dick Parsons will testify tomorrow at 1:30pm. Shelly Sterling will also testify tomorrow.
O'Donnell, Shelly's lawyer, and Samini, Donald's lawyer, are whispering off to the side as next exhibit is called.
The Sterlings will have to find $500 million in order to pay off those loans. Meaning selling off property in order to make that happen.
Shelly's lawyers are arguing the revocation of the trust will cause a notice of default from banks on $500 million worth of bank loans.
Darren Schield, controller at Beverly Hills Properties, which is owned by the Sterlings is now on the witness stand.
Bobby Samini, Donald's lawyer, just walked in, fashionably late.
Donald's lawyers say Shelly Sterling is the only witness they will call but her testimony will likely take place tomorrow.
Pierce O'Donnell & Max Blecher wanted to sidebar with the judge, he reminds him this is probate court and he doesn't do that.
Robert Samini, one of Donald's lawyer, is supposed to be here but they can't find him.
Back at the Sterling Trial today. Shelly is here but no sign of Donald as things get underway.
