As if Magic wasn’t wrapped up in this racism scandal enough, Sterling blasts the Lakers legend for not being a role model for kids in Los Angeles via CNN:

“Did you apologize to him?” Cooper asked.

“If I said anything wrong, I’m sorry,” Sterling said. “He’s a good person. I mean, what am I going to say? Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. But I’ll say it, he’s great. But I don’t think he’s a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”

At this point in time, Sterling seems to be digging the hole even deeper while continuing to rub everyone the wrong way. Magic was already at the center of the scandal with his name being mentioned in the leaked recording from TMZ, but now Sterling taking a shot at his efforts to better the community will only make the Clippers owner look that much worse.

Sterling sitting down with Cooper was considered to be an attempt to apologize to anyone that he has offended and clear the air in the process. The 80-year-old continues to struggle with the reality that his words have ruined any future in the NBA and has severed damaged an already tainted reputation.

It remains to be seen what the outcome will be in this ongoing scandal involving the Clippers longtime owner, but it doesn’t appear to be getting any better after his first interview.

The rest of the Sterling’s interview with Cooper will air at 5:00 p.m. PST on “AC360” on CNN.
