Magic Johnson confirms he would purchase the Clippers, calls it the right situation

Part of the fallout from the sickening Donald Sterling racism scandal was the notice from the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver that he would be forced to sell the Los Angeles Clippers. One of the many, many names that have surfaced as potential suitors is someone who was actually inadvertently a part of the whole issue, Lakers legend Magic Johnson, and on Thursday he confirmed that he would be willing to purchase the team and even called it the right situation.

Johnson is already part owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, although this is not the first time that we’ve heard of his interest in potentially owning a franchise within his own sport of expertise.

Among the other names that have been thrown out as potential buyers run all the way from Oprah Winfrey, to champion boxers Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya.

Although there is still possibly a long, legal road ahead in regards to making the sale of the team go through as Sterling has not warmed up to that part of his punishment well.
