The fact he's asking for forgiveness tells me he's realized he f**** up and knows that his reputation is damaged beyond repair regardless of what happens in court. I still expect him to fight but hearing that you never know.

What do you mean unlikely? We took the best OKC had. We have the 2nd best coach in the league. Right now we are the baddest MFs on the block especially if we get production from Danny.

Sterling just don't know how to shut up. Now he's criticizing Magic as a role model in his latest interview. Anybody gonna miss Sterling when he's gone?

I'll just be so glad when this mess is finally resolved, so we (as fans and the Clippers organization as a whole) can concentrate on the task at hand...striving to win a NBA championship. As an Black man, of course I'm offended by Sterling's comments, but he as a human being and as an American citizen is entitled to say whatever he wants, no matter how ignorant, out-of-touch, and hurtful they are. I believe the real reason why Sterling is being run out of the Association is because of all of the other stuff he's done over time--the conversation tapes with his mistress (and no matter she says, this chick IS a mistress) was just the tip of the iceberg. Seeing as that most of Sterling's fellow contemporaries in the NBA ownership field have either died off or have long sold their teams, Sterling may not have as any allies among the new crop of NBA team owners--certainly not guys like Vivek Ranadive in Sacramento, Dan Gilbert in Cleveland, and Lacob & Guber in the Bay Area.

Don't get me wrong--I believe it's time for The Donald, Shelly, the mistress, and Roeser, plus whatever Sterling flunky is still around to go...hell, it's been time. After every embarrassing thing that has happened, his past transgesssions alone should have been enough to kick Sterling out.

If I have to hear about the effing Sterlings much longer I am going to put a bullet through my skull.......every night before I go to bed, Sterlings.............. Every morning when I wake up, Sterlings. .......... Mid - day when I turn on the news, Sterlings.

Holy shite I can't take it anymore. Worst reality show on TV, ever.

I really think Magic wants this team! He was supporting us, our players, our team, and our fans. People don't really come out and say they are supporting a certain team. I don't know ,....

I don't think long time Clippers fans understand the animus many have to Jim "The Idiot" Buss. He has alienated everyone short of the Pope. Phil Jackson, engaged to a Buss, went three thousand miles away to COMPETE with The Great Inheritor.....

I really wanted Anderson to be like "uh, no... I'm gay, dude" and see Donald's reaction.

Holy F*ck! Did he really just say that about Magic Johnson???? Wait...Wait...Wait....WHAT?

This guy seriously needs the guillotine. Saying someone is a bad example for children because they have HIV is FAR worse than what he said on the tapes.

So Magic called Sterling to tell him to be quiet and he would help him in a week. Why would Magic call him when the story broke? What did Sterling think? he thought he wanted him to stay quiet so magic could buy the team.

So even Sterling felt Magic had ulterior motives. I told you Jquick! I didn't even know Magic called Sterling. f***** scum magic is. For all we know, Magic set him up knowing he would spew that racists ****.

Because if there's anyone whose opinions are worth anything in this, it's Donald's. roll

Seriously, all the terrible comments Sterling is making and you choose to zero in on one thing to bash Magic about?

I'm with Joe... Sterling being a scumbag doesn't mean Magic isn't up to some shady sh*t.

He's way too involved with this whole episode for my liking. Even yesterday at the game talking about Shelly, saying the players won't play for anyone named Sterling. That's not for him to say. They have a union to make statements like that.

He's tampering with the situation and shouldn't be considered as the next Clippers owner.

Because Sterling saying that Magic called him to stay quiet is an opinion, how? See, I know what Sterling is so his OPINIONS don't surprise me. The reason I brought this up is because we got into a argument about Magic. My intuition was right all along and Sterling confirmed it. Now Magic is is going on tomorrow for damage control. By the way, apology accepted.

Dude, he called Sterling to tell him to stay quiet so he could make his rounds on National TV to back stab him when he said he would help. Does anyone really want that to be the next face of the franchise? Racists are ignorant people and deserve what they get but people like Magic are far worse if you ask me.

Nah... apparently we're not allowed to criticize the Machiavellian looter because, by some leap of "logic", that would mean we're defending the racist.

For those who cannot comprehend that we do not have to pick a side between Sterling and Magic - because OTHER billionaires are lining up on Figueroa to buy this team - here are my thoughts in the simplest of terms...

F*ck Donald Sterling and f*ck Magic Johnson too.

See how easy that is?

He's only involved because Donald and his trashy hooker dragged him into their drama. And Magic is far from the only one pointing out the blatantly obvious fact that nobody is willing to play for a Sterling anymore. LeBron just said it to the media today as well - is it "not for him to say" either?

I'd be just as happy with the Geffen/Oprah/Ellison group, but the Magic conspiracy theories remain idiotic.

Yeah... he was "dragged into" saying that Sterling couldn't own the team anymore just a few hours after the story broke, he was "dragged" to yesterday's game to tell the world what the players will and should do... maybe he was even "dragged" into posing for those photos in the first place. Poor Magic.

As for LeBron... he has every right to say that HE won't play for a Sterling, but any statement regarding the other 450 or so players should be made by the NBAPA and ONLY them.

Lacking empirical evidence? ...absolutely.

Idiotic? ...no way. Idiotic is denying that there is even a POSSIBILITY that this was orchestrated.

Regardless if it was or wasn't, Magic's conduct since the tape dropped has been nothing short of tampering. Even his own legal team must have seen it for him to retroactively mitigate against it by tweeting that he was "not looking to buy the Clippers. They already have an owner".

Even if you choose to ignore the fact that he told Donald to lie low for a week while Magic seized the moment for his own benefit, there's no denying he's been posturing for a hostile takeover since day 1 and using his public profile to both trash Donald and ingratiate himself to Clippers fans and players.

This is a f*cking shakedown, plain and simple.

I know the history very well but what does that have to do with the price of tea in china? Magic used a situation that hurt a lot players, fans, Minorities, and even Sterling to potentially gain financially. You think Magic's concern is mainly with the words and acts of Sterling? Don't be naive, Magic doesn't give a rats ass about the racist comments. He only cares about himself and how he can benefit from it.

Magic has never been a saint. When he got the AIDS virus, he was made the spokesperson for AIDS. He resented that label and he quickly left the organization that helped spread awareness at a crucial time when ignorance was running rampant about the disease. This isn't a "who is worse" discussion. This is about me being right all along. Apology accepted once again.

And I said "even if you choose to ignore" that... Magic has still been a manipulative c*nt since this story broke.

You obviously chose to ignore the part about ignoring. I guess ignorance really is bliss.

It's not irrelevant if you're past what Sterling is. This is more about our next potential owner. Sterling is old news and anything he says now isn't going to effect my team that I cheer for. Scratch that, it will make the process easier. Bottom line, Magic is still a threat to buy this team and how these tapes got released is even more relevant than what that geezer is saying.

I don't think you quite get it, Joe... Sterling is evil and Magic is his enemy, ergo: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend".

Same kind of attitude that armed the Taliban during the Soviet occupation and supported Saddam Hussein's regime for a decade during the Iran-Iraq war - and that all worked out fine for us.

Well, apart from the thousands of dead soldiers and trillions of wasted dollars, of course.

But that's not the point. Just about any potential owner will be better than Sterling but Magic is too close to this to even be considered. Not to mention he's had his hands in all of this. He just seems way to eager to get his hands on this. He's lied all through this not just to sterling, but to everyone else. he hid his motives until everyone came out with interest in buying the team. No he shows up to our games? Sorry, he just seems to desperate. I'd rather give to someone who actually has the money to buy the team, not some guy who has to be funded by others.

No. I never did.

But since we haven't had a good owner for a lot longer than I've even been a fan, I think it's wise to avoid jumping at the first guy who smiles in our direction... particularly when we are currently the "belle of the ball".

There are plenty of people who can afford to buy the team who haven't been running off their mouths about this issue, who aren't joined at the hip with the lakers.

Even if you don't buy the notion that we'd be turned into a farm team or some way to devalue the lakers until the Buss family were forced to sell, running this franchise based on emotions - as a way to get back at Jerry's heirs - is just a bad way to do business.
