CHARLOTTE - In a release on Sunday, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan commented about recent allegations that Clippers owner Donald Sterling made racist remarks.
The statement said:
"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.”
The Bobcats trail the Miami Heat 3-0 in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The series resumes Monday night. Click here for more Bobcats coverage.
