It’s Magic, You Know

By now I am sure you have heard all you care to about Donald Sterling and his comments.

I’ve heard them – or, most of them anyway. They may have released an even longer longer recording. Bear in mind, he was having a private discussion with his “girlfriend”. She recorded him without his knowledge or consent, and released the tape to a shock site precisely to embarrass him. His words may be reprehensible, but her action is illegal.

AND…(now, I could be completely wrong about this, but…)

Who was in the picture that supposedly started this whole thing? Magic Johnson

Who was the first to tweet his disgust and get the outrage ball rolling? Magic Johnson

Who, it has now been revealed, has a “group of billionaire investors lined up” to purchase the embattled team? Magic Johnson

Seems just a bit too convenient to me.

Clearly, Sterling has made comments in the past that lead the gold-digger to know she could push his buttons. Clearly, she started recording and trying to push those buttons for a reason. I imagine she was disappointed he never really lost his temper, and if he said “the word” I didn’t hear it on the tape. But, she took what she had right to TMZ because she knew they would pay, and she knew it would damage Sterling.

And she likely knew her “friend” Magic Johnson wanted a way to buy an NBA team that would not otherwise be on the market.

I have no idea what is in Donald Sterling’s heart. I don’t work with or for him. However, if those that do are surprised by this recording, he obviously never behaved in a racist way toward them. If he has previously behaved in a racist way toward members of his team or staff, they should not be surprised to hear his words.

And no one should be surprised that you can’t trust a skanky chick who is with you for your money.

(For all men: If a woman is repeatedly asking you questions that seem specifically geared toward getting you to say something you wouldn’t want broadcast – shut up. If that woman is only there for your bank account, why are you even talking to her in the first place? LOL)

UPDATE: When I first heard the tape, I thought it sounded like he was bothered that people would think she was stepping out on him. I just saw a transcript that supports that, he is telling her he knows she is a slut & he is fine with that – as long as she doesn’t broadcast it.

“It bothers me that you’re broadcasting that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to? Also, you can sleep with black people. You can bring them in. You can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that and not to bring them to my games.”

He definitely says a lot of other stupid stuff on there, but I think his initial problem with her was that she was showing the world she wasn’t committed to him (as if the world couldn’t have guessed that)
