Michael Jordan on Donald Sterling’s Alleged Comments: ‘I’m Disgusted’

by April 27, 2014

Reactions around the NBA to Donald Sterling’s alleged comments continue to pour in, the latest coming from the one and only Michael Jordan. MJ’s statement:

“I look at this from two perspectives – as a current owner and a former player. As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly. As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA – or anywhere else – for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level.”
