Magic Johnson Addresses Donald Sterling Losing Court Case Over LA Clippers Sale
(AllHipHop News) This is the first time in a few months that anything Donald Sterling related had made Magic Johnson smile. During the Los Angeles Lakers press conference, the Los Angeles Lakers' star spoke on Donald Sterling recently losing his court battle over the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.
On the April 26th, TMZ released audio of former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling informing his mistress V. Stiviano he did not want Magic Johnson or any African Americans attending his games. That same day, Johnson announced he would not attend any Clippers games until Donald Sterling was no longer the team's owner. According to TMZ, Johnson informed the media in attendance at the Los Angeles Lakers news conference of his feelings towards Donald Sterling losing his legal battle with the sale of the Clippers to ex-Microsoft CEO, Steve Balmer:
What’s my reaction to the Sterling ruling? What do you think my reaction to the Sterling thing is? [flashes big smile] Do you see this? I don’t think you see this. I don’t have anything bad to say about him right now.
Johnson did state that he did not have any ill feelings towards Sterling and is "praying for the man".
