LaVar Ball: father, businessman … reality television star?
He might as well be, according to one of the NBA’s best coaches.
Prior to the Golden State Warriors’ matchup with the Denver Nuggets on Monday, coach Steve Kerr gave his two cents on the Ball patriarch. And Kerr, who never shies away from speaking his mind, compared LaVar to another polarizing celebrity family.
Though Ball seemingly is in the news every week, he really stirred the pot with his latest comments. In an interview with ESPN, LaVar ripped Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton, who Ball claims “has lost the locker room.” Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle came to the defense of Walton and thrashed ESPN for running the story.
But as Kerr notes, Ball is going to continue to grab headlines, no matter how ridiculous he gets.
