Q: What's your relationship like with [Clippers owner] Donald Sterling?
A: I don't know him real well. I've obviously met him and talked to him on several occasions. I've heard this and heard that, but for the most part, as long as we keep moving forward as a franchise and he's making moves that are... good, then I don't really have a problem with anything that's going on.
I think [the Clippers' image is] getting better, to be honest. Definitely since last year. I think the excitement that our team has brought this year has helped. But at the same time, I think everybody knows that the Lakers are the team in this town. Obviously they've won it all the past two years, so they've earned the right.
Everybody always asks me what it's like to play in the same town with the Lakers. It's not about competing with the Lakers for us. It's about competing with the other 28 teams. I don't have a problem with it.
Not sure which magazine interview this source is from.. but it was posted on Ralph Lawler's Facebook wall as being from an interview.
