Donald Sterling Denies Being a Racist
(NEW YORK) -- The Donald Sterling issue isn't going away anytime soon for the NBA, especially now that Sterling is denying that he is a racist. In an audio recording that was posted by Radar Online, which was later confirmed by ABC News, Sterling yells: "You know I'm not a racist!"
"You think I'm a racist?" He says. "You think I have anything in the world but love for everybody? You don't think that! You know I'm not a racist!"
In another recording that was released by TMZ a couple weeks ago, Sterling made racist remarks that led to being served a lifetime ban from the NBA as well as a $2.5 million fine by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
Sterling has yet to make any public comments since Silver handed down his decision, but he is expected to fight the NBA and their decision to oust him from the league.
Sterling bought the Clippers in 1981 and is the longest tenured owner in the NBA.
