Disgraced Clippers Owner Donald Sterling to Anderson Cooper: I Made a 'Terrible Mistake'
“I’m a good member who made a mistake and I’m apologizing and I’m asking for forgiveness,” Donald told Anderson on the air (via CNN). “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, and I’ll never do it again.”
“Well, that’s a very good question,” Donald said when asked why he waited so long to apologize. “I just — I’m just so emotionally distraught, and the reason it’s hard for me, very hard for me is that I’m wrong. I caused the problem. I don’t know how to correct it.”
“I was baited — I mean that’s not the way I talk,” Donald added. “I don’t talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things — I don’t talk about people.”
The full interview airs tomorrow at 8pm EST.
