(Los Angeles Times) – In an interview with “GQ” magazine, comedian Dave Chappelle said he thinks the end result of the Donald Sterling fiasco wasn’t quite fair.

“Ultimately, I don’t think he should have lost his team,” Chappelle said. “I don’t like the idea that someone could record a secret conversation and that a person could lose their assets from that, even though I think what he said was awful.”

An audiotape featuring Sterling, the Clippers’ former owner, making racially charged remarks was released to the media during the Clippers’ playoff run last season.

The fallout was sharp and fast.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling from having any association with the league, fined him $2.5 million and urged the Board of Governors to force the sale of the team.
