In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Magic Johnson says Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is "living in the stone ages" in his attitudes about minorities.

The hall of fame NBA player also said he was shocked such a prominent man would have such ignorant views on HIV and AIDS as well as Johnson’s outstanding record with charity work.

"My whole life is devoted to urban America. So, you know I just wish he knew the facts when he's talking," Johnson told CNN's Anderson Cooper exclusively Tuesday. "But he's a man who's upset and he's reaching. He's reaching. He's trying to find something that he can grab on to help him save his team. And it's not going to happen. ... I'm a God-fearing man and I'm going to pray for him and hope things work out for him."

Clippers owner Donald Sterling made his first public comments Monday since racist recordings emerged last month and earned him a lifetime NBA ban. In an interview with Cooper, he repeatedly brought up the ex-NBA star's HIV and called him an unfit role model for children.
