This has been the most talked about news story of the week. The NBA clippers owner Donald Sterling had the audacity to allegedly make some racist remarks against African Americans. The Clippers held a silent protest by turning their warm up shirts inside out to hide the team logo but no team members has spoken publicly about the allegations. These legends however were not so subtle and quiet.
Three NBA legends lashed out at Sterling Sunday.
Jordan, considered the league's greatest player and now the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, said: "As an owner, I'm obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. ... As a former player, I'm completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA -- or anywhere else -- for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed."
NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who was a Clippers special assistant coach in 2000, told CNN: "I know him. I know his voice. I am not surprised by this very much."
But Abdul-Jabbar said Sterling was congenial in person and said he never heard any racist words from Sterling. Still, the recording shows a "repugnant attitude for someone to have, and for him to be an employer for so many people of color, it kind of blows your mind."
Johnson, speaking on an ABC pregame show Sunday, said Sterling needs to go.
"He shouldn't own a team any more. And he should stand up and say, 'I don't want to own a team any more,' " Johnson said.
Me personally i'm hoping he steps down as team owner and the NBA shows the players the unity and suspend Sterling indefinitely. This is a very serious story but some of these Instagram post are hilarious.
