NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dick Parsons is hoping for a short stint running the Los Angeles Clippers, though ready to stay on as long as it takes. Moving the franchise away from Donald Sterling and to new ownership might require a lengthy fight, but its one Parsons thinks is worthwhile. "This is an issue thats actually bigger than just the Clippers, bigger than just the NBA in my judgment," Parsons said. "The whole world is kind of watching how, frankly, we as a country navigate our way through this crisis. So if I can help, Im happy to try." The NBA chose Parsons, a former Citigroup chairman and former Time Warner chairman and CEO, as interim CEO of the Clippers on Friday. Parsons will oversee the management of the franchise and represent it at owners meetings while the league tries to force Sterling to sell following his lifetime ban for making racist remarks. With Sterling barred from anything to do with the team or league, and team President Andy Roeser on an indefinite leave of absence, the league and Clippers worked together to find someone to lead the organization along with coach Doc Rivers. Parsons, who is black, met with Commissioner Adam Silver on Monday and accepted the position Thursday. He had gotten to know Silver, then the deputy commissioner, when Time Warner owned the Atlanta Hawks, and he supports what Silver is trying to do now in his first crisis since replacing David Stern in February. "Hes a good man and hes trying to do the right thing and hes trying to do it in the right way, and he could use some help," Parsons said during a phone interview. Parsons is currently a senior adviser at Providence Equity Partners and sits on the board of directors for the Commission on Presidential Debates. He has also been on President Barack Obamas economic advisory team. A graduate of the University of Hawaii, where he played basketball, Parsons earned a law degree from Albany Law School in 1971 and became a staff lawyer for New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller. He moved to Washington when Rockefeller was appointed vice-president, and also worked closely with President Gerald Ford. Parsons left the legal field in 1988 to become president, then chairman and CEO of Dime Bancorp, Inc. He was Time Warner chairman and CEO from 2002-08, then chairman of Citigroup from 2009-12. Silver said in a statement that Parsons "will bring extraordinary leadership and immediate stability to the Clippers organization." "Dicks credentials as a proven chief executive speak for themselves and I am extremely grateful he accepted this responsibility," Silver added. The owners advisory/finance committee has already held two conference calls since Silver banned Sterling, fined him $2.5 million and said he would urge owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise he has owned since 1981. That would require Sterling to be charged with violating the leagues constitution and bylaws, followed by a three-fourths vote of owners after a hearing. Sterlings estranged wife, Shelly, wants to keep her 50 per cent ownership stake in the team, her lawyer said Thursday, and Silver said so far the ban only applies to Donald Sterling. While that potential fight goes on, the Clippers are trying to stay focused on the playoffs following their most successful regular season ever. They are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder entering Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series. Parsons said he wouldnt be involved in an ownership fight and hopes one wont even be necessary, that "cooler heads and rationality" would allow the NBA and the Clippers to work through the turmoil without a legal battle. He doesnt know how long that could take. "I know the NBA would love to get this done before the next season begins, but who knows whats going to happen? Its open ended," Parsons said. "Were here until sort of we can work our way through the point of transition." Jim Palmer Jersey . - The infectious smile was missing from Nam Nguyen last week. Jonathan Schoop Jersey . Even if he is shooting 38 per cent from the field overall this season, the Utah Jazz rookie always feels like his final shot is going in. The moves were the first punitive steps taken by the Dolphins since a report on the NFLs investigation of the case was released last week. Investigators found that guard Richie Incognito and two teammates engaged in persistent harassment directed at tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. J.J. Hardy Jersey . "Im not doing enough to help them," Durant told The Oklahoman on Monday of his 28-9 team. "Im shooting too much. Im shooting too many threes. Im not helping them out at all. Frank Robinson Jersey . Louis Blues just continue to roll -- especially against the Nashville Predators.After flunking a test their last time out, the Minnesota Wild hope to get back on track Thursday when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre. The Senators hope to win two in a row Thursday for the first time since a season-high four-game winning streak from Oct. 11-18. Viewers in the Senators region can watch the game live on TSN5 starting at 7:30pm et. You can also listen to the game on TSN Radio 1200 in Ottawa. The Wild carried a three-game winning streak into Tuesdays home game against Pittsburgh and were handed a 4-1 loss by the Penguins, who won their fifth straight contest. Pittsburgh has allowed only four goals during that winning streak. Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo would like his team to forget about Tuesday and aim for a rebound effort tonight in Canadas capital. I think we know that it wasnt good enough, and now we turn our sights towards the next one, Yeo said after Tuesdays setback. The Wild, however, have had little success against the Senators in recent years, losing seven of the last eight meetings in this series. Minnesota did earn a win in its most recent trip to Ottawa, picking up a 4-3 regulation victory on Nov. 20 of last season. That win halted the Wilds three-game road losing streak versus the Sens. Minnesota fired 34 shots at Pittsburghs Thomas Greiss on Tuesday, but only Nino Niederreiter was able to get one past the Pens backup goaltender. Darcy Kuemper allowed three goals on 21 shots in the Wilds first home loss, as Minnesota fell to 5-1-0 at Xcel Energy Center. In addition to suffering their first home defeat, the Wild lost Zach Parise to injury on Tuesday and he wont be joining the team for their three-game road trip. Parise, who leads Minnesota with 10 points this season, suffered an upper-body injury against the Pens. Forward Matt Cooke sat out Tuesdays test and also wont be with the team tonight due to a a lower-body issuue.dddddddddddd Ottawa halted a two-game slide with Tuesdays 3-1 home win over Detroit. The Red Wings and Senators were tied at 1-1 late in the third period, but Patrick Wiercioch tallied the go-ahead goal for Ottawa with 5:23 left in regulation and Clarke MacArthur added an empty-net tally in the final minute. Erik Karlsson finished with a power-play goal and an assist in the victory. Craig Anderson turned aside 31 shots for Ottawa. Anderson will get the start again for Ottawa this evening, the first time a Senators goaltender has gone back-to-back this season. but is just 3-7-2 with a 3.08 goals against average in 13 career games versus the Wild. Niklas Backstrom expects to start for the Wild. The Sens began a four-game homestand Tuesday and have still yet to lose in regulation on home ice this season, going 3-0-2 so far at Canadian Tire Centre. Ottawa defenseman Mark Borowiecki (upper body) missed his third straight game on Tuesday, while forward Alex Chiasson (foot) sat out after getting injured in Saturdays loss against Boston. Both players are questionable for tonight, as is defenseman Chris Phillips, who suffered a lower-body injury on Tuesday.
