During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling asked for forgiveness for the racist comments that led NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to ban him for life.

Los Angeles Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said Sterling’s comments to Cooper, which included additional criticism of Lakers great Magic Johnson, didn’t sound like much of an apology, but there’s at least one person who is ready to forgive the embattled owner: Gilbert Arenas.

Arenas posted a photo of Sterling on Instagram yesterday along with the following message:

I’ll be the first to accept ur a man who’s made a mistake or two in life I know how hard it is to look at your self in the mirror when you let so many ppl down but for anybody who can’t and won’t accept his apology u need to look in the mirror because were not perfect..forgiveness will destroy racism not more hatred..

It’s an interesting look for Arenas, who used Instagram to troll Indiana’s Roy Hibbert last week. That seems like ages ago now.

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling tells CNN's Anderson Cooper in an interview that aired in May 2014 why "it's very hard" for him in the wake of TMZ releasing a recording of Sterling making racist comments. (Now This News)
