LaVar Ball, the basketball world’s walking hot take, is at it again.
The Big Baller Brand founder went on quite the media tour Tuesday, including a stop on “TODAY” with son LiAngelo Ball, during which the two explained why LiAngelo decided to withdraw from UCLA.
But that was just the beginning, as LaVar also appeared on SiriusXM NBA Radio, where he was asked about son Lonzo Ball and the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers, who’ve lost five games in a row.
Here’s what LaVar had to say about the mindset of the Lakers rookie point guard:
At one point, the conversation turned to LiAngelo and the recent reports that he has “no chance” of being drafted next summer. LaVar’s response to those claims was, of course, head-scratching.
Even if it’s true that scouts would fall in love with LiAngelo if they saw him play with Lonzo, it’s nonetheless pointless to talk about, as the two obviously won’t play together in a game before the 2018 NBA Draft.
Furthermore, talk about putting immense pressure on son LaMelo Ball, who’s still just 16 years old. Although, LaMelo probably has a better chance of playing for the Lakers than LiAngelo given that he’s ranked seventh in ESPN’s Top 100 for the class of 2019.
