NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Defends Magic Johnson
NEW YORK, May 12, 2014 NBA Commissioner Adam Silver released the following statement after CNNs Anderson Coopers interview with Donald Sterling that aired earlier this evening:
"I just read a transcript of Donald Sterling's interview with Anderson Cooper and while Magic Johnson doesn't need me to, I feel compelled on behalf of the NBA family to apologize to him that he continues to be dragged into this situation and be degraded by such a malicious and personal attack. The NBA Board of Governors is continuing with its process to remove Mr. Sterling as expeditiously as possible."
