Donald Sterling attended a charity event on Tuesday in Los Angeles, and NBC4's Fred Roggin caught up with the banned Los Angeles Clippers owner who will soon likely be an ex-Clippers owner. Sterling tried to walk away from the camera after some pleasantries, but Roggin asked him about the sale to Steve Ballmer.

Come back for one minute. Now that it's all said and done, the team's been sold, how do you feel?

I feel fabulous. I feel very good. Everything is just the way it should be, really. It may have worked out differently but it's good. It's all good.

So you're done, you're okay?

Well, I'm okay. I'm okay. Is the NBA okay? I'm not sure about them. Is Adam Silver okay? I'm sure he's okay.

But now you move on, you move on with your life?

Move on.

At that point, Sterling thanked Roggin for the interview and it was over. It is unclear how sincere he was being about "moving on," or how that relates to his lawsuit against the NBA. He and his attorneys have not said if they will continue with the lawsuit despite the pending sale negotiated by Shelly Sterling.

The NBA board of governors will vote on the deal agreed to by Ballmer and the Sterling Family Trust.
