Donald Sterling has cemented his place as one of the biggest scumbags in sports history. He already didn’t have the greatest of reputations before the leaking of his horribly racist comments — and now his reputation will be in the trash where it belongs.
Unfortunately he’s drug Magic Johnson into this whole ordeal as well. Not only did he just generally blast African Americans, he named names. He named names in a city that loves Magic Johnson.
“It bothers me a lot that you (his girlfriend) want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?”
“Don’t put him (Magic) on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games,” Sterling said in an audio recording obtained by TMZ.
Who does Sterling think he is? What world does he live in?
I feel sorry for my friends Coach Doc Rivers and Chris Paul that they have to work for a man that feels that way about African Americans.

This guy should be checked over for mental problems. Comments like those just lead you to believe that there’s something seriously wrong with him. If he really is racist, delusional and ‘sane’ at the same time — that’s scary.
You have to feel bad for the Los Angeles Clippers. The team has to be associated with this guy during the midst of its playoff run. The players will say it’s not a distraction, but we all know it is. It’s hard to imagine African American players just being able to shrug off nasty comments like that.
To be an employee of a filthy individual like Sterling can’t feel great.
We’ll now wait for the scumbag owner’s PR guy to issue a statement. His comments were probably ‘taken out of context’ and he’ll claim that he was set up.
No one will buy it.
