Donald Sterling is known to be an extremely unlikable, unsympathetic person, but his cruelty has never manifested itself to this extent. The owner might be getting his just desserts this time, however.
The NBA will investigate Sterling after hearing the leaked phone conversation where he told his half-Mexican, half-black girlfriend V. Stiviano to not bring black people to his games when he saw her post a picture of herself with Magic Johnson (even if you’re a legend, you’re still black).

LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling's comments about African Americans are a black eye for the NBA.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) April 26, 2014
His history with race-related incidents don’t help out his cause either. He had to pay the US Department of Justice $2.3 million after allegedly discriminating against African-American families looking for rent in Los Angeles.
Godspeed, Sterling (not really).
