Clippers owner Donald Sterling denies racism claims in new recording

May 9, 2014 | Basketball, Sports | 0 comments

A new recording of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling insisting he’s not racist has been released, and his wife has thrown a wild card into the scandal. In an audio clip posted online by RadarOnline, Sterling says he’s not a racist and he won’t be forced to sell his team. ABC News confirmed the voice is Sterling, but the person he’s speaking to is unidentified. Sterling was banned from the NBA for life after he was recorded making racist remarks. The NBA advisory panel has agreed to begin the process of selling the team. However, his estranged wife Shelley Sterling has reportedly staked her existing claim of the team. The LA Times reports that Shelley says she’s a die hard fan of the Clippers and she believes the sanctions against Donald, including the 2.5 milion dollar fine and the lifetime ban, does not apply to her or her family. This circumstance could spell further problems for the NBA.
