Donald Sterling is finally expressing remorse about the racist comments that got him banned from the NBA ... this according to former L.A. Kings owner Bruce McNall who says Donald told him he feels "terrible" during a phone call a few days ago. 

McNall was out in Malibu on Wednesday and told us he's been friends with Sterling for years -- and had a conversation with the disgraced L.A. Clippers owner just the other day. 

"Oh man, when I talked to him ... he felt terrible," McNall says. 

"I mean he was like 'What an idiot I am. I don't know what I was thinking or doing."

It's the first time Sterling has shown any regret about the substance of his comments. The last thing he had said was that he was only angry that he didn't pay off V. Stiviano when he had the chance.

So. The Sterling is even more tarnished due to the fact he associates with this CROOK, eh? Sterling sure has a BIG MOUTH and his foot jyst can't stay out of it. He shoulda' kept his private thoughts between himself and his WIFE! Oh, and maybe the butter-sucker Paula Deen! Ha ha ha ha ho ho ho ho heeeee...... !

What he should truly feel humiliated about is being a shrewd, successful businessman with such truly appalling judgment with whom he surrounds himself!! That trashy, insincere, ugly little bitch has taken him for a very expensive "ride" and trashed his name. The athletes on his team enhanced his reputation. Has he gone senile, or what?!

When Rick Sanchez was fired from CNN for making a remotely vague anti-semitic statement, he was canned with no mercy. However, Sterling, being Jewish, seems to think that racist comments against african-americans should be forgiven. Make an anti-semitic comment in the USA and you are vilified with a vengeance with relentless , unforgiving zeal.

He feels terrible that his remarks were publicised. No sympathy for him or that stupid tart V. Stiviano.
