Report: Donald Sterling asks for forgiveness
ESPN 532+ SHARES
Donald Sterling, the disgraced and banned owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, asked for forgiveness in his first sitdown interview since audio recordings of him making racist comments surfaced last month.
"I'm a good member who made a mistake and I'm apologizing and I'm asking for forgiveness," Sterling told Cooper.
When asked by Cooper why he waited until now to make his first public comments, Sterling said he's been "emotionally distraught."
The Sterling firestorm comes in the midst of the Clippers' best chance at making the NBA Finals in its history.
Los Angeles is tied 2-2 with the Oklahoma City Thunder in their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals series.
