Sterling Apologizes For Remarks
Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is looking for forgiveness. Nearly two weeks after the NBA banned him for life for making racist comments, the 80-year-old Sterling told CNN's Anderson Cooper he made a mistake and he's sorry. In an interview being broadcast tonight, Sterling insists he's not a racist and says it's taken him so long to apologize because he was "emotionally distraught."
Also, Sterling is reportedly having a tough time finding legal representation as he prepares to battle the NBA. According to "TMZ," Sterling has been rejected by at least eight law firms as he tries to retain counsel to sue the league. The report claims the law firms are rejecting associating themselves with Sterling because they believe he's "toxic" and could upset their other clients. (Metro Networks Inc.)
