Mandatory Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsDonald 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.

Via ESPN:
 
"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."

Oh.

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.

I can still remember where I was when Magic Johnson announced he had AIDS, that's how much of an impact that story was not only for me but I'm sure a lot of other people in the world.

It would be the ultimate bitch slap of karma for Sterling if Johnson were somehow able to come out of all of this as the owner of the Clippers

First of all, he should get it right. Magic had AIDS! He hasn't had aids in at least 10 years. C'mon, man.
