(via LA TIMES) Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling lashed out at Magic Johnson during a CNN interview broadcast Monday night, alluding to the NBA’s great’s HIV-positive diagnosis and saying, “I don’t think he’s a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”
Sterling’s comments came as he addressed racial remarks he made that prompted the NBA to ban him for life. In a recording released by TMZ two weeks ago, Sterling tells a female friend, V. Stiviano, not to associate with black people, including Johnson.
“What kind of guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then catches HIV”, Sterling told Anderson Cooper. “I think he should be ashamed of himself.”
Sterling also questioned whether Johnson has made a positive contribution to the African American community in Los Angeles. He then pointed to his own charitable work. Continue reading

Beyoncé and Jay Z have kept on keepin’ on.
With news of Jay Z’s run-in with sister-in-law Solange Knowles as they were leaving a Met Gala after party taking up a huge chunk of the Internet, The Carters looked to be in perfectly good spirits tonight at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
They were sitting courtside to watch Game 4 of the Nets’ playoff series with the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. Of course Queen Bey looked picture-perfect in jeans and a matching denim shirt, her flowing hair swept to one side.
Jay Z had on his unofficial niform of jeans, a white T-shirt and gold chains and looked unscathed today’s revelations (or Solange’s kicks). Towards the end of the second quarter, Heat superstar LeBron James appeared to exchange a few words with the couple while he waited for a member of the Nets to shoot free throws.
The duo also attended Saturday’s home game, but while they were fully aware of what went down at the after party, the world was in the dark at the time.
Security footage from the Standard hotel elevator (where the apparent altercation took place) hit the web today after being leaked to TMZ. Standard management blasted the security breach, saying in a statement that they were “shocked and disappointed” and “investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation.”
What caused the heated exchange remains a mystery.

Hate to tell you Lil’ Tunechi, but it must be those ugly furry boots you’ll be wearing. Security didn’t know whether or not you were the Florida zombie or a wilderbeast!
According to reports, Lil Wayne was told by the Oklahoma City Thunder organization that in order to attend tonight’s Oklahoma City Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs playoff game he would need to purchase a ticket like everyone else. Wayne’s camp did contact the team requesting tickets but insisted that he sit on the front row, which was sold out.
His “Go Spurs!” line didn’t play out to well as the Thunder blew out the Spurs in a 102-82 victory.
