When the topic of Magic Johnson came up, Sterling had a few choice comments, accusing the former player of tricking him in an attempt to buy the Clippers.
Sterling: What has he done, can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done?
Cooper: Well, he's a business person...
Sterling: He's got AIDS. Did he do any business? Did he help anyone in South LA?
Cooper: Well I think he has HIV. He doesn't actually have full-blown AIDS.
Sterling: Well, what kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV? Is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background. But what does he do for the black people? He doesn't do anything.
The interview does mark some improvement for Sterling, who is able to stop himself as he starts to say, "There's no African-American," ending the sentence with, "Never mind. I'm sorry."
