WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Baseball Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda says he’s not surprised by his friend Donald Sterling’s racist remarks.

The former Dodgers manager tells West Palm Beach station WPBF (https://bit.ly/1rZYJUW ) after 30 years of friendship with Sterling, “It doesn’t surprise me that he said those things. And he shouldn’t have said it.”

Sterling was banned from the NBA for life for racist comments made on an audio recording.

Lasorda also offered his thoughts on the woman Sterling was talking to on the tape, V. Stiviano, saying: “I don’t wish that girl any bad luck, but I hope she gets hit with a car.”

Lasorda was in South Florida to receive an honorary doctorate Tuesday at Northwood University.
