Grizzlies Owner Robert Pera wants to play Michael Jordan one-on-one.

Originally, Jordan declined to speak on Donald Sterling, but today he changed his mind.

“I look at this from two perspectives — as a current owner and as a former player. As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly.

As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA — or anywhere else — for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level. “

Jordan’s words carry weight, so if you think this is just going away, you are wrong.

Donald Sterling is not going to go down without a fight, but if it is a fight he wants we all should come out swinging against him.
