1. DONALD STERLING
Another recording: It seems everyone is recording Donald Sterling these days. Another bit of audio attributed to the L.A. Clippers owner appeared yesterday onRadarOnline.com. In the recording, the man denies he’s a racist and doesn’t appear ready to sell the team. CNN cannot independently confirm that the speaker is Sterling. Sterling has been banned for life from the team’s day-to-day operations and facilities, and was fined $2.5 million last week for racist comments that were recorded and posted online late last month.
