LOS ANGELES - NBA Legend Magic Johnson responded to controversial comments made against him by embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Sterling attacked Johnson's character during his first interview since a recording of him making racial comments was released. Johnson says he is mad at the wrong person.

"He's a man who's upset and he's reaching, Johnson said. "He's reaching. He's trying to find something that he can on to help him save his team, and it's not going to happen. It's not going to happen."

Magic went on to say, "I'm a God-fearing man and I'm going to pray for him and hope things work out for him."

Sterling received a lifetime ban from the NBA and could be forced to sell the Clippers. His estranged wife, Shelly, wants to keep her 50% share. NBA officials say that likely will not happen.
