Sterling: Magic not good example for LA kids
ESPN 549+ SHARES
Banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling says Magic Johnson isn't a good role model for the children of Los Angeles, making the comment to CNN in the same interview where he also asks for forgiveness for the racist comments he made in leaked audio recordings that surfaced last month.
Sterling's girlfriend, V. Stiviano, had posted a photo of her and Johnson on her Instagram account.
In the interview with CNN that will air Monday, Sterling says he's talked to Johnson twice since the audio recordings became public and is asked if he apologized to the former Los Angeles Lakers star.
But I'll say it, he's great, but I don't think he's a good example for the children of Los Angeles," he tells CNN.
Sterling also claims in the interview that he was set up by Stiviano to make the comments.
