Jordan ‘disgusted' by Clippers owner alleged remarks

CHARLOTTE, NC - APRIL 26: Michael Jordan watches as the Charlotte Bobcats play the Miami Heat in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

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.
