LOS ANGELES (AFP) - LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and other National Basketball Association stars joined the Los Angeles Clippers in outrage at racist comments purportedly from Clippers owner Donald Sterling that came out on Saturday.

He was allegedly the speaker on an audio recording posted on TMZ's website that caught a man arguing with a woman about her posting pictures with black people on the Internet and asking her not to bring black people to Clippers games.

While a statement from the Clippers to ESPN questioned the legitimacy of the recording and denied the comments reflected Sterling's feelings, the outrage from NBA stars was clear, loud and emphatic.

"No room for Donald Sterling in our league," Miami Heat superstar James said. "I can't imagine what's going on in his head."
