In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, the Clippers owner was contrite about making racist comments:
"I'm a good member who made a mistake and I'm apologizing and I'm asking for forgiveness," he said. "Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It's a terrible mistake."
Sterling also gave some indication he might try to fight if NBA owners vote to force him to sell the Clippers. For more on all this, we reached Danny Cevalos, a legal analyst for CNN.
