Donald Sterling: Magic Johnson is not a good example for the children of LA

Magic JohnsonDonald Sterling recently sat down for an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper that will air on Monday night. The discussion features Sterling’s first public apology as well as a half-hearted apology to Magic Johnson.

“The only one I’ve talked to is Magic Johnson — twice,” Sterling told Cooper. “He knew the girl, he said. He knew the girl well. If I said anything wrong, I’m sorry. He’s a good person and he…”

At that point, Sterling looked like he was making a conscious effort to refrain from saying something that would get him into further trouble. He then made it clear that he is not Magic’s biggest fan.

“What am I gonna say?” Sterling asked. “Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. But I’ll say it, you know, he’s great. I just don’t think he is a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”

Johnson and Sterling obviously don’t like each other. How much of that has to do with Sterling’s history of racism is unclear, but Sterling probably views Johnson as a threat on some level. Magic has admitted he is interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers, and we know the NBA would consider any proposal from him and his billionaire backers.

As for the stuff about Magic not being a good example for the children of LA, we’re not really sure what Sterling is referring to. Perhaps he will reveal more in the full interview.

    You’re not really sure what he is referring to? You must not be aware of Magic’s past and allegedly present behavior towards women, especially prostitutes, all while pretending to be an outstanding citizen and husband. Or were you aware and planning on turning a blind eye because he’s black?

    sterling is spot -all Johnson has demonstrated is an affinity to have sex with any and all women, leave them when they have children, and pretend he is something to look up to – he is a bum period – even Charles ranks way ahead of Johnson at least Charles is honest about who he and what he is.

  • Barry Bond

    that’s accurate

    The last thing the children of Los Angeles need to see is just another black man who works hard, earns millions of dollars running businesses, and who doesn’t waste his potential committing crimes and getting locked up. I know I wouldn’t want my kids seeing successful black business people running around doing drive-by contract negotiations.

  • TomTomFarts

    As a business man, yes he is a tremendous role model and success story. As a father and husband, he unfortunately lives up to the stereotype and surpasses it by a longshot. He treats women like objects he can discard.

    Are you guys kidding me? What the heck does this have to do with Magic Johnson? Maybe you white guys need to stop worried about another mans “Johnson”. Maybe that is the main issue, your fear of black “Johnsons”. LOL! Get a life.

    Try not to let your racism show so blatantly. Why you gotta call me “You white guys” and bring perversion into the conversation? Sounds more like a personal preference you have towards penises. You are insulting and racist sir. Grow up.

    “Why you gotta call me”. Nice grammar, TomTomFarts! At what age did you drop out of elementary school?

  • TomTomFarts

    Never actually, would bet my house I’ve accomplished more than yourself Elpida2. I was just trying to act gangsta to the racist RPatterson. Thanks for your concern though. Gotta love the internet grammar police and the assumptions from lowlifes like yourself. Carry on loser!
