This photo set off an NBA owner’s race rant
NYPost ^ | 4-27-2014 | Bruce Golding

The online photo that sparked a racist rant by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling surfaced today, just hours before the team was scheduled to play Game 4 of its playoff series against the Golden State Warriors.

The picture shows Sterling’s ex-mistress and a friend posing arm-in-arm with basketball legend Magic Johnson.

V. Stiviano posted the pic to Instagram, but took it down after Sterling blasted her for it and told her not to bring any black friends to Clippers games. (The photo was first obtained by TMZ Sports.)

The smile that Magic has on his face is his-- "here is my standard photo face." He could care less about those two women.

Magic Johnson is one of the nicest people I ever met, and I met him in a dive restaurant in L.A. I'd love to have a photo taken with him. All-around good guy. I guess the owner of the team was just really jealous?

Yeah, but the Young Kept Woman has her sexed-up over-the-shoulder pout on. And she’s making bling ring gang signs.

Old Rich Guy is paying for exclusive access and the appearance of it. The appearance might just be more important than the reality.

I have no idea if he’s paying for class but it doesn’t look like he’s getting it.

I heard Magic wants to buy the Clippers - any truth in this?

Yeah, “all round good guy” Ever wonder about how many people he’s infected?

All he needs is an owner willing - or compelled - to sell.

He could very well be gay or bi, and the old geezer had nothing to worry about.

The old fool has a girlfriend sixty years younger than he is, and he wonders why she’s messing around. She probably got tired of hearing him talk about his difficulties with his bowel movements. He deserves every bad thing coming to him. Even though I think this fiasco is quite overblown considering nothing was done to part Nets owner Jay-Z who showed up at a Nets game wearing a racist medallion. All the people blowing off now about Sterling (who is a scumbag) said nothing about Jay-Z. We know why.

Basically the same thing happened to Dog the Bounty Hunter. A scuzzy son turned him in, and in this case, a hooker. Watch whom you associate with I suppose.

Sterling’s comments and attitude are indefensible.

I chased Magic out of my seat at a Clippers playoff game at the Sports Arena back in 1992. The next day the Rodney King riots broke out...

An old fat, ugly, rich ego driven a-hole with a young girl deserves whatever she does to him, just like they say there is no fool like an old fool and he is the perfect poster moron that proves this to be true.

Maybe she just got tired of wiping the drool off his mouth and changing his soiled diaper, but I’m sure it was not from being worn out from endless sex with him.

But his money fuels a large chunk of LA liberalism. If he can’t advertise in the Times, it could sink them. They’re stuck.

So, what has happened between the owner and his girlfriend. You know, the one who taped and released the calls to the tabloids??!! Without her boyfriend’s knowledge or possible permission.

Is that even legal?

Maybe Earvin and her are coordinating secretly for him to get a chance at purchasing the Clippers, at a discount “fire sale” price, to Magic’s Johnson?

I know that I will say things in private to a trusted friend that I would not want said in public, let alone a site like TMZ. I would also bet that 100% of us here on Free Republic have also said things in private that they would not want divulged publicly.

It’s a given that we do not know the half of what was going on in that relationship.

She played him and used him for her materialistic gain.

I am sure that he used her in ways that only he knows.

I know that when I make my first billion, I am staying away from 19 year olds...

That crossed my mind,too. Owning the Dodgers gave him billions in TV $$, and now he’s shopping for his first love: NBA team. I wonder if this was just happenstance or was it leaked to TMZ for a greater purpose. Stay tuned...

I should add that my opinion;I don’t know for certain he’s shopping for an NBA team but the media has mentioned him as a likely bidder if it is sold.

Magic Johnson does not have a billion dollars to buy the Clippers.

His part in the 1.3B Dodger deal was about 50M.

What we are dealing with is a trial lawyer that made his money suing people. A ardent Democrat that has probably had a long string of mistresses, and who is fundamentally a douche bag.

This guy finally got bit by some bad karma and the media can't seem to find the pre-written facts to stick their crowbars in.

True. But they just got a gigantic multi-billion dollar TV contract;I’m sure his share value of the Dodgers, on paper, went way up.

As before, he will be the high-profile minority figurehead that will “lead a group” that will gain control.

He’s got something more important than money: LA friends who idolize him, and an image the NBA wants. imo

I doubt it. They paid about double what anyone else thought the team was worth.

You would think with all that money he could get a woman that did not look like a transsexual.

She nothing but a gold-digging wh____.

Another segment of the population that is given prominence in Obama’s America is “victims”. You can make a career out of it based merely on perceived slights and wrongs.

Be a star in the grievance industry.
