LaVar Ball’s Reaction To Lonzo Ball’s Triple-Double Might Come As A Surprise


What a difference a day can make. Well, that is unless your name is LaVar Ball.

LaVar’s son, Lonzo Ball, had a nice bounceback performance Saturday night in his Los Angeles Lakers’ 86-81 loss to the Boston Celtics in an NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas. One night after he had a woeful shooting performance, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft recorded a triple-double against the C’s with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

But the always-entertaining LaVar wasn’t satisfied with just the stats. In his eyes, it’s all about winning.

“Good job, but he’s still got to win. … He understands that,” LaVar told’s Rachel Holt after the game.

You can hear that full answer and more in the video below.
