Sterling called out Magic as not doing enough for the black community.
“Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. I’ll say it, he’s great, but I just don’t think he is a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”
But EJ dished to HipHollywood about the Sterling incident.
“I really thought it was outlandish talk. There’s no room in any industry for racism. I was just more disappointed and more baffled than anything else that this is still a prevalent issue,” he said.
Sterling is now banned from the NBA for life after a recording of him making racist comments at a LA Clippers game linked.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer bought the Clippers for an amazing $2 billion.
But Sterling didn’t go down without a fight and filed a lawsuit against the NBA for forcing him out as owner.
“The Team is not for Sale” and said that “from the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers,” Sterling said. “I have decided that I must fight to protect my rights,” Sterling continued.
Sterling added, “while my position may not be popular, I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process should not be trampled. I love the team and have dedicated 33 years of my life to the organization. I intend to fight to keep the team.”
But it seems as though the racist in this story came up empty-handed.
