Talk about a classy response to a totally classless act!
Just yesterday Donald Sterling spoke out about his racism scandal with Anderson Cooper, and in a sad attempt to shift the focus, he actually pointed the finger of blame at Magic Johnson himself and had even MORE nasty comments about the former basketballer!
Well the Laker legend fired back at the disgraced owner, but instead of dragging his name through the mud or shooting off insults, he decided to
This Sterling character is just the WORST!
In the interview, Sterling says he talked to Magic a few times since his racist audio was released, but then he totally slammed the Los Angeles Lakers legend for being HIV positive.
Well, it turns out that Sterling did talk to Magic, but the call didn’t go well.

She has no interest in buying out her husband and reportedly is fine with forcing him to give up his stake in the team and sell his half to an outside buyer, like Oprah or Dr. Dre or any number of people interested in buying.
But she wants to stay onboard as a passive owner!

They are refusing to play for ANYONE with the name Sterling next season, even Shelly
After NBA Commissioner Adam Silver brought down the hammer on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, people were thrilled!
And of course everyone took to Twitter to express their feelings, including lots of athletes, both active and retired, and a few others associated with the league, like Mark Cuban.
Here's what they're saying:
