LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has apologized for the racist comments that got him banned from the NBA for life, telling CNN's Anderson Cooper that it was a "terrible mistake" and that he is not a racist. Sterling also repeatedly disparaged Magic Johnson's HIV-positive status in an interview that aired Monday, saying he was not a fit role model for children and dismissing his work in business and charity. Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA and fined $2.5 million after recordings of him making racist comments surfaced.
