NEW YORK (PIX11) — Why did Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling take so long to say he’s sorry for the racist remarks that got him banned from the NBA?
Magic Johnson, he claims, told him to stay quiet.
“Wait, be patient, I’ll help you, we’ll work it out,” Sterling said the NBA legend told him.
In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Sterling spoke publicly for the first time since a controversial audio recording of him sparked a firestorm and put his ownership of the Clippers in jeopardy.
