Tommy Lasorda likes to talk. But when expressing his feelings on V. Stiviano, the “silly rabbit” of Clippers owner Donald Sterling, it seems the former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers said too much. Lasorda started his thought with, “I don’t wish that girl any bad luck,” then ended with, “But I hope she gets hit by a car.” That doesn’t even make sense!
That clip is from an interview with WPBF-TV, where a reporter asked Lasorda what he thinks of Donald Sterling, the owner of the Clippers who was banned for life by the NBA last week after he was caught on tape saying racist statements to Stiviano. Lasorda said:
“I’ve been a friend of that guy’s for 30 years. 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.”
So, maybe next time Lasorda wishes someone no ill-will (EXCEPT FOR BEING RUN OVER), he’ll take his own advice.
