    Magic Johnson reportedly interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers

    Magic Johnson reportedly interested in buying the Los Angeles*Clippers | The Point Forward - SI.com


    With Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist remarks coming to light over the weekend, the emphasis has now shifted to “what’s next” for the controversial owner and his distracted franchise.

    One of the biggest discussions has centered around the future of the Clippers and whether the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver will force Sterling to sell that franchise. In that vein, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports is reporting Lakers legend Magic Johnson and his ownership group are interested in buying the team if Sterling is forced (or chooses) to sell:

    Magic Johnson and his billionaire backers, the Guggenheim Partners, want a chance to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. “Magic’s absolutely interested,” one source closely connected to Johnson’s business interests told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night


    Hmmm, GF last seen taking pictures with Magic Johnson....

    Bizarre how many conservatives always creep out the woodwork to defend racist.

    I'm sure they were cheering the burning of Dixie Chick CD's but man....how dare people object to racist comments.

    No one here is defending what he said. That's all an illusion in your head.

    What I am doing is making a case that he was set up so he would sell the team.

    Dog crap on a cracker. Who the hell is defending the guy?
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    That's possible. If the article is accurate, it sure looks possible, since Magic was the guy she was with that got him to say the things he said.

    I guess you could say that you don't agree with what he said but you don't think there should be any consequence for it either.

    Since it was a private conversation that was likely illegally taped...no I don't.

    Fact of the matter is everyone who was close to this guy knew what he thought. It's not a surprise to the media or the NBA/players.
