Magic Johnson has responded to Donald Sterling's repeated attacks, saying he's "going to pray" for the embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner.
In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Tuesday, the NBA legend admitted he was "blown away" when he first heard Sterling's racist rant during a heated conversion with his female companion V. Stiviano.
"I was in disbelief that he would say these things. And then to throw me into the situation. I don't know the young lady, barely know Donald, so now I'm caught in the middle of this love affair, whatever they have," Johnson said.
The L.A. Lakers icon admitted he was even more surprised when Sterling slammed him again on CNN, during an interview on Monday night.
