You guys DO realize that Magic set this up with Sterlings girl to get him busted so Magic could come in and buy the team right? Please tell me you aren't that gullible. Magic has wanted the Clippers for years and he was in the pic with Sterlings girl that set Sterling off.

Sterlings son in law as owner is still a dire situation. Sponsors and players will not fully buy into that. Any link to Sterling is only a negative now, even if it's indirect.

I had that same conversation with my wife. Donald's estranged wife was said to have been sitting court side at the last game, and she is said to have taken the plane ride home with the team. Mw wife asked if having her take ownership would be better, and I hesitated and thought that even though she is estranged she still has a link....

Yes, I have a big problem with that. He isn't a season ticket holder. He isn't even a regular at games. He's a business man that is seeking another NBA team that got his first team in unusual circumstances. yeah, I have a big problem with that. I also don't care that he has a statue outside Staples. That's for him being a Lakers, has nothing to do with the Clippers. Big whoop!

He made his feelings heard over and over and now it's time for him to move on. That means that he should stay away from trying to obtain this franchise.

Eric Miller is the best option for now for the NBA.

My problem with Magic is:

  1. He is too involved in this whole fiasco

  2. He is a former Laker

The last thing I want is a Laker coming to the rescue. I've already said if this is the alternative to Sterling then yes, but I doubt that this is the only option available.

I don't know for sure. The vibe I get from the latest rumblings makes me feel this way.

I disagree. I think his close relation to DTS makes it so he won't be enough to keep Doc, the players, and the sponsors, let alone pleasing the general public. It's unfair to Miller, but most people would always assume that he's just a figurehead while DTS pulls the strings from afar.

For some reason, I just have a gut feeling that the NBA wants Magic to own the team. The problem is, they're apparently too scared to vote DTS out and he won't sell on his own, so it's not happening.

Magic Johnson Angling For Clippers' Purchase Despite Public Denials

Magic Johnson spent a good part of Monday publicly denying any interest in purchasing the Los Angeles Clippers, but sources say he and potential investors spent part of the day working behind the scenes to understand how they could be put in a position to make a deal for the franchise.

If the Clippers become available, Johnson wants to be positioned to make a purchase.

Johnson and his partners are owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers and also tried to purchase the Los Angeles Lakers. While Johnson claims they're focus is on bringing an NFL team to Los Angeles, the...

Waiting or working behind the scenes to see how he can obtain the Clippers despite there being very little chance the NBA can't make him sell? C'mon man, he's been going after every LA team even when they weren't for sale. Open your eyes.

wanting to obtain businesses in trouble is a corporate vulture. Think about what a vulture does in the wild...Think about it. Magic is just not sitting and waiting for his prey to die, he was cheerleading to the masses that this prey should die. It's one thing to try an obtain a company in good faith and it's another to create an atmosphere to make a company sell. That's Gordon Gekko territory. On top of that, he's lying straight in YOUR FACE about not going after the Clippers when he was all this time. He's played you and you're still defending him. I told you his intentions from jumpstreet and I've been right all along.

He's not playing anyone. He has to publicly say he's not interested to avoid any tampering accusations, everybody with a brain knows that. He didn't create an atmosphere of getting the team sold, DTS did by saying racist things.

If Magic buys the team, you'll forget all about this lame conspiracy theory by the time LeBron suits up for his first game as a Clipper.

I was put off by him being a Laker too, but I don't think it matters anymore. None of us really disliked Baylor for being a Laker legend, it was more that he wasn't that good at the job.

He'd be a great owner and our team would be better for it.

Question to the anti-Magic crowd: when GM's deny interest in free agents in order to avoid tampering charges, are they vultures involved in a conspiracy too? Or are they just doing their job and making life easier for the NBA?

Can't have it both ways.

Apples and oranges. It's about ethics. That's not how I want the next owner to be. Simple as that. Anyone but him.

There is no "next owner," DTS won't sell and won't be voted out. It's all over.

He proves it himself the second he bids for the franchise. Calling for an owner's dismissal before bidding on the franchise is tampering.

The team wouldn't move. But I still want to cover the banners. Feels a little bit like espionage with the lakers connection.

I like magic though

"NBA Commissioner Donald Sterling issued a life-time ban to Clippers owner Donald Sterling for making racially insensitive remarks on an audio tape."

WOW! even Donald Sterling knew he was a prick and racist himself, so he banned himself from the NBA for life! haha.

The fact that the Clippers are being referred to as "one of the premiere franchises" now is amazing to me. We've come a long way IN SPITE OF that piece of **** Sterling.

POS!

Now that everyone has come out with interest in buying the team that POS now admits he does too. Quick, where are you at? I told you what would happen. I hope Geffen/Oprah get it.

"I think the fans have already spoken," Johnson said. "They would like us to own the team. But we have to wait and see."

WTF? The fans haven't spoken you retard.
