If the NBA has its way, Donald Sterling's days as the owner of the Clippers are numbered.

But, no matter what happens to the team, he will remain one of the city's most high-profile landlords. Several years ago, he and his wife settled two lawsuits that claimed they were discriminating against blacks and Latinos in some of the apartment buildings they own. They also agreed not to violate federal housing laws and to pay for special monitoring.

KPCC's Brian Watt looks into what kind of landlord Sterling is today.
