Lavar Ball father of UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball has probably gotten used to saying outrageous things regarding his sons talents but we haven’t.
The latest thing to come out of Lavar’s mouth and make waves through social media was him saying Lonzo would only play for the Lakers. That seems like a long shot considering that the Lakers will only keep their pick if it lands in the top three. Otherwise it goes to Philly and I doubt Lonzo would refuse to suit up for any other team. I’ve really just been waiting for Lavar to be completely wrong about something and have it blow up in his face.
Lavar has also said that Lonzo is already better than two time MVP Stephen Curry. He also said Lonzo could be better than Michael Jordan because “somebody has to be.”
I really hope for the sake of Lonzo’s career that Lavar calms down. Pros in the league right now are probably going to have a preconceived opinion on Lonzo because of his dad and it doesn’t seem like it’ll be a good one.
