The trial to determine the fate of the Los Angeles Clippers pushed forward on Wednesday with disgraced former owner Donald Sterling providing more memorably outlandish testimony. Sterling continued his time on the stand in an attempt to prove he was wrongfully stripped of control of the family trust when doctors ruled he was mentally unfit to make business decisions.

Sterling is arguing the exam was conducted under false pretenses because he didn't know the findings would be enough to strip him of his right to the trust. His wife Shelly would go on to sell the Clippers for a record $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

After a day of contentious testimony on Tuesday, Donald and Shelly Sterling against took the stand on Wednesday. Things were not any more harmonious according to the reporters in the courtroom.
