Extended audio of the racist remarks being allegedly attributed to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has emerged.

Deadspin has gotten their hands on an extended, 15-minute version of the conversation between V. Stiviano and a man reported to be Sterling. The original audio from TMZ was just 10 minutes, and Deadspin has posted the additional five minutes. 

The most controversial statements had already been made public, but the extended wording of some of them is sure to be equally contentious:

Man: Well then, if you don't feel—don't come to my games. Don't bring black people, and don't come.

V: Do you know that you have a whole team that's black, that plays for you?

Man: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have—Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?

The couple also discuss Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp as if he's some sort of racial demarcation and crudely bring up the treatment of black people and Jewish people in Israel and during the Holocaust.

The NBA has said that they will work swiftly to confirm if the audio is actually Sterling and verify that it hasn't been altered.
