The fallout from the controversial phone conversation L. A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling had with his girlfriend might be beneficial for the man who, in essence, was responsible for the discussion that took place.
Former NBA great, Magic Johnson, the man who posed with V. Stiviano, Sterling’s girlfriend, has stated he has an interest in buying the team from the owner. According to NBC Sports, Johnson has been trying in earnest to become an owner of a NBA team and sees this as a great opportunity to pounce on the unfortunate views of Donald Sterling.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports writes: ‘Magic Johnson and his billionaire backers, the Guggenheim Partners, want a chance to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. “Magic’s absolutely interested,” one source closely connected to Johnson’s business interests told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night.’
