Donald Sterling says Magic Johnson isn't a good example for young people in Los Angeles
Donald Sterling, who lost his role as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers because of some ridiculously racist things that he said, just can't seem to shut his mouth.
His latest comments were directed towards Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson. And they're not pretty.
"He's got AIDS. Is this someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background."
I'm not sure if Sterling is trying to imply that he's somehow a better example to kids than Magic Johnson, but these are just more embarrassing comments from Sterling, who can't seem to get it.
These comments came in the same interview in which Sterling apologized for his previous racist comments, some of which involved Johnson.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver felt the need to address these latest comments with the following statement:
"I just read a transcript of Donald Sterling's interview with Anderson Cooper, and while Magic Johnson doesn't need me to, I feel compelled on behalf of the NBA family to apologize to him that he continues to be dragged into this situation and be degraded by such a malicious and personal attack. The NBA Board of Governors is continuing with its process to remove Mr. Sterling as expeditiously as possible."
The NBA needs to continue to distance itself from Donald Sterling as swiftly as possible. He's a disgrace.
