Dodgers special advisor Tommy Lasorda has a strong take on the saga of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
In an interview with WPBF in West Palm Beach, Florida, the former manager weighed in on the comments that led Sterling to be banned for life by NBA commissioner Adam Silver. Sterling was tape-recorded telling his mistress, V. Stiviano, that “it bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people.”
“I’ve been a friend of that guy’s for 30 years,” he said. “It doesn’t surprise me that he said those things. And he shouldn’t have said it. He just hurt himself by talking too much and doing things he shouldn’t be doing.”
Lasorda also shared an unsolicited opinion on Sterling’s silly rabbit, V. Stiviano.
“And I don’t wish that girl any bad luck but I hope she gets hit with a car,” he said.
