"He’s reaching. He's trying to find something he can grab onto to help him save his team," Johnson said about Sterling lashing out at him.
Johnson said that while he's upset at Sterling's accusations, he would still say hello to him and his wife if he saw them on the street.
“I’m not a guy who holds grudges and all that," he said.
He also defended his work to help minorities.
"My whole life is devoted to urban America, so I just wish he knew the facts when he’s talking," Johnson said.
