Donald Sterling to Play Santa Claus at Toy Drive in Watts Projects

Banned NBA owner will hand out gifts to kids in Los Angeles neighborhood.

Published December 12, 2014

This seems like a bad joke, right? A really, really bad one.

TMZ Sports is reporting that Donald Sterling will be handing out toys to kids at the ninth annual Chrismukkah Soirée "Party in the Projects" in the middle of the Watts Housing Projects on Saturday. The same Donald Sterling, who was banned by the NBA for life this past April after a recording was leaked exposing him for making racist remarks about African-Americans.

The disgraced Los Angeles Clippers ex-owner reportedly reached out to Youth Mentoring Kids, the group organizing the event, and said he wanted to bring a sleigh with toys to their "Party in the Projects" event and they accepted his offer.

If this is Sterling's attempt to rebuild his image, he's got a long way to go on that front.
