In the midst of the ongoing Donald Sterling scandal, Magic Johnson’s name has continued to come up nearly every step of the way.

It was a picture with Johnson that led to Sterling’s infamous comments in the first place, and Sterling took a number of shots at Magic Johnson in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Johnson had his own interview with Cooper today, and spoke on his anger towards Sterling’s comments as well as what he felt was Sterling’s reason for attacking him. But Johnson also addressed the rumors that he was looking to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers:

There had been rumors of Johnson wanting to purchase the Clippers, assuming the NBA’s Board of Governors moves forward and forces Donald Sterling to sell the team. While this doesn’t completely end those thoughts, it is good to see that Magic still holds a loyalty to the Lakers.

The chances of the Buss family selling the Lakers is still unlikely, as they have spoken on their intention to keep the team in the family for as long as possible. It would take a huge change of heart to make them want to give up the Lakers.

But if that were to happen, Johnson will be the first person in line looking to buy. He is a Laker at heart and that will never change.
