Magic Johnson Obsessed With Owning The Clippers

Los Angeles (AFP) – Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson Sunday reiterated his belief that the NBA must oust embattled Clippers owner Donald Sterling, and said players won’t play for Sterling’s wife, Shelly, either. Johnson is a beloved figure in Los Angeles after leading the Lakers to five NBA titles before his retirement in 1991 after announcing he was HIV-positive. Johnson, attending the Clippers’ home playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, was asked by an ABC television interviewer if Shelly Sterling was a viable owner. “First the fans wouldn’t like it,” Johnson said. “The players definitely wouldn’t like it, everybody would boycott. “And then the sponsors have already made themselves clear that they wouldn’t be sponsoring this team if either Sterling stayed on as an owner.” Magic Johnson’ obsession.
