Jordan, Magic want swift punishment for Sterling
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Michael Jordan said he’s both disgusted and outraged by the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Jordan, now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, released a statement Sunday addressing the matter. He said that as an owner, “I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views.”
As a former player, Jordan says “I’m completely outraged.”
An audio recording obtained by TMZ alleges that Sterling made racist comments to a girlfriend, including urging her not to bring black friends to Clippers games. The NBA and the Clippers are investigating, including whether the male voice on the recording is in fact Sterling’s.
Jordan said he is confident that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will investigate the matter fully and “take appropriate action quickly.”
