Magic Johnson Responds To Donald Sterling’s Alleged Comments

UPDATE (10:37 AM PST): Magic Johnson responded to Donald Sterling’s alleged comments on Twitter and says he will never go to a Clippers game as long as Sterling is the owner:

After his girlfriend posted a picture with Laker legend Magic Johnson, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling allegedly made racist comments as he was caught on tape. The tape was sold to TMZ and quickly blew up over the internet as fans were shocked by the owner’s alleged words.

Sterling was allegedly disgraceful in his choice of words as he ruthlessly attacked his girlfriend over her association with African-Americans. Some of his comments were transcribed by TMZ.

Sterling even allegedly went as far as telling her to not bring Magic Johnson to any of his basketball games:

“…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 has quite a history regarding previous events. He has been sued multiple times over refusing to rent apartments to African-American families and also, his former general manager, Elgin Baylor, sued the owner for racial discrimination after his dismissal from the team.

Being obviously caught off guard by the situation, Magic told TMZ Sports that it’s a shame that Sterling allegedly feels that way about African-Americans:

“It’s a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about African-Americans.”

He adds, “He has a team full of amazing African-American basketball players that are working to bring a championship to Clippers fans.”

Sterling’s alleged comments will not only cause a major distraction for his team, but will take away what their fans should really be focused on at the time, the playoffs. After finally breaking from the mantra that he wasn’t willing to spend money on a winning team, Sterling appears to have taken yet another step back in his term as an owner.

The Clipper organization will have a lot of questions to answer in the coming days as these alleged comments like these are completely unacceptable. The NBA has no place for such degrading words and the league will surely step in and levy some sort of punishment.

    Sterling should be given a hefty fine and a one year suspension from the Clippers,not allowing him to even attend games.

  • Thomas Tymich

    What about Obama? He is a racist too!!!

    • Tracey Ratchford

      Please Stfu!!!!! How when he’s half white and raised with his white relatives……. you sound stupid…..

  • Malcolm

    Donald Sterling likely believes in slavery and he probably views his players as slaves.This is just a time he got all caught up with a racist conversation.He has had issues with racism in the past and he is a bad guy with bad hurtful intentions.Black people were slaves for a long time and we want to put those days behind us.Donald Sterling must be outlawed from the NBA.Jesse Jackson got to speak more on this bad situation and tell Obama it’s a sad day to be a sports fan knowing Donald Sterling is a racist owner in the NBA.Just hoping this Sterling leaves the NBA.Adam Silver must make a stand the NBA is in trouble if this Sterling idiot stays in power.

  • Malcolm

    NBA Adam Silver has to crack the whip on Donald Sterling.Show everyone racism won’t and can’t be tolerated in the NBA under any circumstances.Take a stand.

  • Daryl Peek

    Marge Shott anyone? Who didn’t see this eventually coming?

    The best case scenario for the Clips, Adam Silver and the league suspends Sterling sooner rather than later.


    What if the Clips won it all this year? How does that workout when the trophy is being presented with the normal speeches and congratulatory thanks to our owner being said? #Awkward

    The next logical step would be to force Sterling to sell his shares in the team like MLB did with Schott in 1999, after years of her racist ISH. I’d hope Sterling sold his stake to that Seattle group who were trying to buy the Kings and get of of LA.

    • ra

      Yeah, Sterling’s timing is pretty bad. He could have waited until after the Clips could have ‘at least’ made it to the Finals, etc. Yes, we knew he was racist before.

      I mention again that this is karma coming back and slapping him (and the NBA) in the face for the CP3 interference. The NBA supported a racist organization, and this is what you get. It’s putting a different light on the playoffs, and could affect things more than we know.

    Magic you should go to every game the clippers have and sit right there next to him and let him know he can’t stop you from nothing you choose to do….

  • Rich

    All these babbling bullshit that’s being said here means nothing, the only solution is to do what the jews do, don’t spend your money with anything that he is associated with that means the NBA period! If players from refused to play today and tomorrow as a result I guarantee you the commissioner would get rid of him instantly because the other teams owners don’t want to lose money.

  • Kakarot

    Damn, even when the Clippers win they lose.

    • John Moore

      Because of their butthead owner. He needs to learn the “Golden Rule” and start applying it asap.

  • Michael

    Doc Rivers and the players should boycott the rest of the playoffs in protest. Nothing good is going to come out of this for them, even if they win a title. The players and Doc shouldn’t have any money worries, and they can go play for other teams who would be glad to get them. Doc can’t just respond by saying what he said earlier today–”this is difficult for me”, and hope everything blows over. That doesn’t cut it. He and the players can’t be greedy and selfish enough to dismiss this for the sake of “getting the gold”. I know they’re young and didn’t go through all the crap in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s, but they need to understand the implications of not acting and speaking out against this issue. It is more serious than winning basketball games!

  • Michael

    I also agree with “Rich” below.

  • earwin II

    Why do people have to login to “down vote”?

  • http://bet.com/ JamalPigSheite

    dis stirlin be a rasim nome sayn

  • Bill Do

    A lot of hookers say “Sorry no blacks” in their ads. And now this. Its just disgraceful. Al Sharptons head gonna splode.

  • Fred Elliott Sr.

    Good luck getting free agents. Baron Davis brought this out when he played for the Clippers and they said he was being sensitive. Donald had property he didn’t feel he had to rent too black people regardless of the Fair Housing laws. Now you got some fool thinking Black people want to be slaves. Some things never change !

    • John Moore

      Yep. Baron Davis was saying this guy is bad news.

  • TheTruthKills

    He’ll get a fine and a slap on the wrist. Meanwhile his team looks like the team to beat. If the Clippers manage to win the championship all will be forgiven. Everything will be lost in confetti and champagne showers.

    • John Moore

      I don’t think the Clippers will win the championship now. They won’t want to win for this clown. They will mail it in, cash their checks and that will be it.

      • TheTruthKills

        It’s not about winning for Sterling. Its about winning for themselves. They’re not going to willing mail it in after working all season for this opportunity.

  • jeff

    I wonder if Blake Griffin told Mr. Sterling he is half black

  • ty

    Honestly the man is not a racist. Hes mad his girl is fucking around and didnt know how too say it. Leave the man alone if anything the girl munipulated the whole conversation.

  • Bekonwao

    Not the first time he does this. So much for thinking that Jewish people are saints that suffered and can empathize with those that are discriminated. Money and power and he forgets that not long ago his people were being hunted down and killed for being who they are. Disgusting.

  • Drac

    Will he speak out about this also or just what stupid white people say??? Kill ‘All White’ Men, Women, Babies, Blind, Cripple, Fa**ots, Lesbians & Old Crackers, Says New Black Panthers Vile Radio Opening; Then ‘Dig ‘Em Up’ & ‘Kill ‘Em Again’

    • whites

      Those who are making this a white vs black issue are hypocrite trying to hide behind the wall.

      Why cannot we keep this focused on Sterling’s Hatred for Africans.

      Leave us whites alone who did not take part.

      I realize it is an easy way out to take the focus off Sterling.

      Whites are the problems!

      • whites

        No, the Whites and Blacks are the problem. If we make it one, then we are letting Sterling off the hook.

        • whites

          Whites and Blacks are NOT the problem. That is what I wanted to SAY.

  • savtheanimals

    All of this has been taken out of context. Listen to all of the recording before you judge.

    • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjfHTTRcxMHmiaS9dOg0rZQ Knowledgeiswhatsup

      The only thing taken out of context or not put in context is when he said that being a racist was a part of his (Jewish) culture and that blacks and others are his enemies. Jewish media won’t emphasize that and they are embarrassed that he let it slip out.

      • independentbynature

        You should be embarrassed by your own remarks,as well.You and Sterling are two sides of the same coin.You’re both racists.

        • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjfHTTRcxMHmiaS9dOg0rZQ Knowledgeiswhatsup

          You are full of it and you are trying to dilute clear-cut Jew racism and white supremacy out of the mouth of one of it’s lords. We all know Sterling’s racism, but you can only call me that, but you have not demonstrated it at all. You are defending him because you are a Jew and it is a part of your culture. As soon as more people wake up, the sooner they can bring down your empire.

          • independentbynature

            Just keep talking,bigot.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjfHTTRcxMHmiaS9dOg0rZQ Knowledgeiswhatsup

            Now there are more recordings of Sterling’s and it confirms everything I wrote and what you try to deny. I’ll keep talking – racist Jew.

          • independentbynature

            I’m not a Jew.I’m a Christian.Do you hate us,too?You are an evil racist.May God have mercy on your soul.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjfHTTRcxMHmiaS9dOg0rZQ Knowledgeiswhatsup

            Ask god to help you pointing out the racism that you accuse me of. You are a liar, so get outta here with your god.

          • independentbynature

            You accuse yourself,bigot.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjfHTTRcxMHmiaS9dOg0rZQ Knowledgeiswhatsup

            You wrote a lot but have not provided proof/examples of my RACISM, not simply not kissing the behinds of Jews.

          • independentbynature

            Your comments are pure racism.I don’t have prove anything.You already did.It’s pitiful you don’t know that.You must have some kinda mental defect.That would explain your “thinking.”You’re a mental case.I really do pity you.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjfHTTRcxMHmiaS9dOg0rZQ Knowledgeiswhatsup

            Prove a point or stop the BS.

  • Draccosmom
