It appears that he was secretly entrapped into making those crude comments by this very same girlfriend without his prior knowledge and the tape leaked to the media outlets. The question not brought up is just what was her motive for recording him secretly and releasing the tape to the public. Was it vindictive in nature?

While Sterling is highly skilled in making money, he somewhat woefully lacks social skills. He apparently does not believe that what you say publicly will not come back to haunt you later one way or the other.
