TOMMY LASORDA doesn't mince words.

The former Dodgers manager recently took a swing at V. Stiviano, while addressing the Donald Sterling racism scandal.

Lasorda, a Norristown native, told WPBF in West Palm Beach that he wasn't surprised by Sterling's taped comments, which got the the Clippers owner banned from the NBA.

"I've been a friend of that guy's for 30 years," Lasorda 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."

As for Stiviano, Lasorda said:

"I don't wish that girl any bad luck but I hope she gets hit with a car."

Yo Tommy, tell us how you really feel.

Barkley at it again

Speaking of outrageous statements, Charles Barkley is back in the news for comments he made about fat women in San Antonio.

Barkley, appearing on "Inside the NBA" before Game 1 of the Spurs-Blazers series, was asked by co-host Kenny Smith what kind of women they have in San Antonio. Which is like lighting the fuse on a stick of dynamite and waiting for the explosion.

"Big old women down there," Barkley said while the rest of the panel, which included Shaquille O'Neal and Ernie Johnson roared with laughter. "That's a gold mine for Weight Watchers."

Wait, there's more.

"Victoria's definitely a secret," chortled Barkley. "They can't wear no Victoria's Secret down there . . . They wear big old bloomers down there, ain't nothing skimpy down in San Antonio."

That, of course, caused an avalanche of protests, some from groups we didn't know existed.

The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance, and the Obesity Action Coalition, both want an apology.

Good luck with that.
