PORTLAND, Ore. — Paul Allen, owner of the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers and NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, issued a statement Tuesday in response to racist comments attributed to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Allen says, “The kind of statements attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling, if true, are abhorrent, and not acceptable for the owner of an NBA franchise or anyone in professional sports. We at the Trail Blazers reject any and all such sentiments, and believe NBA leadership should take swift and impactful action in this case.”
