^Sterling is a business man, plain and simple. i think he is worth something like $2B. He has consistently made big money on the Clippers over the years fielding a losing team. That makes him a "lousy" owner in the eyes of the fans, but still a good business man. Somewhere in his very recent past, he flipped a switch and decided to start spending money. Has he become a "good" owner from a fan perspective? Time will tell, but the last year or so has been a different Sterling.
FYI, by comparison Dr Jerry is worth around $400m.
The Clippers aren't the only source of revenue for Sterling, though, as he has numerous real estate holdings that account for his wealth as well. While Dr. Buss may have earned his money through real estate himself, I believe his primary source of income is through the Lakers.
