Magic Johnson says Donald Sterling is "delusional"

Published Add your comment

Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson has finally responded to the viscous racist comments that have got LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling in serious trouble.

Sterling was banned by the NBA recently for the comments that he made in a conversation with a female friend that were originally private, but soon became public.

TMZ Sports published the offending material and it caused uproar in the NBA. Magic was one of the people that Sterling verbally discriminated against.

Sterling then caused further pain and misery when he attacked Johnson again during an interview with Anderson Cooper this time, but this time the former Lakers star found his voice and came back at the Clippers owner.

In his own interview with Cooper, Magic responded.

"He's living in the Stone Ages (sic)," Johnson said in an interview that aired Tuesday with CNN'S Anderson Cooper, a day after Sterling made his first public comments since racist recordings emerged last month and earned him a lifetime NBA ban.

"You can't make those comments about African Americans and Latinos. You just can't do it."

Johnson went further and accused the Clippers boss of not being in the right mind, claiming his comments make him sound insane.

The ex-Laker was referring to the fact that Sterling still feels that his players love him.

"He is delusional. He's trying to find something to grab on to help him save his team," Johnson added.
