Michael Jordan Responds to Alleged Racist Comments made by Clippers owner

Posted: Updated:
Charlotte, NC - (WJZY) In a statement released on Sunday, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan commented on the alleged racial remarks made by Clippers owner, Donald Sterling.

In the statement Jordan said:

"I look at this from two perspectives – as a current owner and a former player.  As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly.  As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA - or anywhere else - for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport.  In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level.” 

The Bobcats and Miami Heat series continues Monday night.
