Magic Johnson Offering To Buy The L.A. Clippers From Donald Sterling — Says “He Shouldn’t Own an NBA Team Anymore”

Magic Johnson Buying LA Clippers

Los Angeles, CA — According to some sports analysts and other sources, former NBA star Magic Johnson wants to be the new owner of the LA Clippers. Yahoo Sports is reporting that Magic Johnson and his billionaire backers, the Guggenheim Partners, are “absolutely interested” in a chance to purchase the team and feel that now is a better time than ever.

The team is reportedly worth about $700 million, and sources also say that Johnson, who is already part owner of the L.A. Dodgers, has been trying to buy an NBA team for some time. They say he tried many times to buy the LA Lakers, but was unsuccessful each time because the current owner didn’t want to sell it.

But now Sterling, who made some serious racist comments to his girlfriend about her taking pictures with Black people (including Magic Johnson), is being pressured to sell the team. And Johnson is willing to take it off his hands.

During a recent NBA Playoffs pregame show, Johnson said of Sterling, “He shouldn’t own a team anymore. And he should stand up and say, ‘I don’t want to own a team anymore.'”

One thing is for sure, if Johnson did buy the team, thousands of fans would be thrilled and it would take a lot of pressure off of current NBA commissioner Adam Silver – who has yet to do anything.
