CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Michael Jordan says he's both disgusted and outraged by the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Jordan released a statement Sunday addressing the matter as both a current owner and a former player. He says that as an owner, "I'm completely disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views."
As a former player, Jordan says "I'm completely outraged."
An audio recording obtained by TMZ alleges that Sterling made racist comments to a girlfriend, including urging her not to bring black friends to Clippers games. The NBA and the Clippers are investigating, including whether the male voice on the recording is in fact Sterling's.
