It's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, who've covered sports for ESPN. 

New Clippers owner

The $2 billion dollar sale of the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is official. He can move his stuff into Donald Sterling's old office. What are fans saying about him?

Ballmer has made it clear he will not move the team to Seattle and that he's looking forward to spending more time in LA. But should he think about changing the team's name? It has such a connection to Donald Sterling. Why not start fresh with a new name?

Major League Baseball and the new commissioner

After 22 years, MLB commissioner Bud Selig is five months away from retiring. Tomorrow, MLB owners will vote on his successor. Regardless of who it turns out to be, what are the top two things that person should do right away for the sport of baseball?

Rapper Drake gets in hot water with the NBA 

The next big free agent in basketball is Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder. He hits the market in two years, when he's 27 years old -- right in his prime. Durant has led the league in scoring four out of the last five years and is the reigning MVP.  Teams such as the Lakers are already getting ready to make a run at him two years from now, but the Toronto Raptors might have already started.

The rapper Drake is the Raptors official global ambassador for the team and last week, Durant was at Drake's show in Toronto. The rapper gave him a shout out and urged fans to show Durant what it would be like if he played for the Raptors. The NBA has fined the Raptors $25,000 for tampering. Was it worth it for Toronto?
