(AllHipHop News) The Los Angeles Clipper are in the position to go up 3-2 in their best-of-7 series with the Oklahoma City Thunder, but they took some time to address Donald Sterling’s interview on CNN last night (May 13th).
Rivers previously stated that he would reconsider continuing to coach the Los Angeles Clippers if any of the Sterling members remained in ownership. Following the Sterling’s interview on CNN, Rivers revealed to ESPN that he will “stand by Magic ever day of the year” and Sterling’s interview “doesn’t sound like much of an apology to me.” Interestingly enough, Rivers later said he was not looking for an apology:
I wasn’t looking for him to say anything. I’ve been asked a hundred times: ‘Do you accept the apology?’ I wasn’t looking for him to say anything. I’m not looking for an apology or anything. Right now I’m focused on our guys and being above all that. That’s fine; he’s going to keep doing what he does. We have to keep doing our jobs, though.
During his interview with Anderson Cooper, Donald Sterling remarked that all of the Los Angeles Clippers’ players loved him. Chris Paul was a bit puzzled by Sterling’s statement:
I don’t know about all that. I love my wife, my kids, my family and my teammates
Blake Griffin elaborated further on Paul’s statement:
Throughout the past two weeks we’ve tried to make it as much not about that and not about what’s going on with him. If you ask every single guy on this team, they’ll say they love their family, they love their teammates and that’s who we’re playing for and that’s really the bottom line.
