Entertainment mogul David Geffen, best known as a music exec and film producer, is looking to move into the sports arena, ESPN confirms. The billionaire, who was recently revealed to be the subject of Carly Simon‘s classic song “You’re So Vain,” is seeking to obtain a majority share of the Los Angeles Clippers from Donald Sterling.
LeBron James and Maverick Carter were in Los Angeles on June 6 to discuss possible opportunities. Carter attended Game 2 of the Lakers/Celtics NBA Finals with Geffen, though James opted to stay away to avoid the media attention his presence at the game would draw.

remarkable value, it’s true that
there have been countless inquiries over the years. But the Clippers
have never been for sale.”
Apparently, Geffen told Sterling at a recent dinner that “he can
deliver LeBron as long as he’s calling the shots.” We’re seriously
doubtful — this town isn’t big enough for LeBron and Kobe.
