MYOB - Beleaguered Clippers owner Donald Sterling doesn't want Obama commenting on his business and suggesting he's racist. "Why would he [Obama] make a comment without talking either to Magic [Johnson] or somebody here?" Sterling reportedly said in yet another uncovered recording. "Or review the papers. I think that was such bad judgment on his part to make a flippant comment from Malaysia. Wasn’t that? How does he know what the facts are?" (Photo: CNN)
