Will he shut up when his son is in the NBA? I don't think so. I wouldn't be surprised if NBA teams include LaVar in their scouting reports of Lonzo.

The dumb thing he said this week?

UCLA would have won the title except they had too many white guys.

In UCLAs last game his son scored 10 points with 4 turnovers, Fox the PG opposite his son? 39 points, 1 turnover. I'm not sure it was the white guys who failed to show up.

Hopefully LaVar's son is going to get his dad to shut up when he's a pro.

He is making it really easy to root against his kids.

Their white kids Alford and Leaf were UCLA's top scorer and 3 of the top 6 were white. Leaf, Alford, and Welsh were more important than Ball, Hamilton and Holiday.

Not to mention Fox absolutely dominated Ball that game on both ends. LaVar Ball is honestly a piece of **** at this point after talking about other peoples kids, and how he is a better father then another man.

Lonzo coming out saying he doesn't want to be drafted by anyone other than LA really makes me think this family is all about themselves and egotistic.

Thank you Lavar, for giving me someone to root against for at least the next 20 years between all your kids who are also cocky as ****. Your middle son won't get to the NBA and your youngest isn't near as athletic as Lonzo but he may get in.

This kid was already highly unlikeable simply by looking like Drake's ******** little brother. His dad has basically buried him, and taken a dump on his grave.

It's one thing to hype up your own kids for marketing purposes, it's completely across the line to attack his kid's teammates. And racially, nonetheless.

So, if Ball got drafted by the Jazz I imagine every loss would be Gordon Hayward's fault.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson talked a little last year that they felt they were called soft and weak by other NBA players because their mothers are white.

So, sports, which is supposed to be, above everything else, a meritocracy turns out to have plenty of racists within it too.

I know teams will take players off of their wish lists in free agency based on "family" issues. I wonder if LaVar keeps this up he will get his kids dropped from any teams draft boards?

I actually like Lonzo, he seems humble and seems like hes a good kid. From a far, he seems to have the right attitude and doesnt seem outspoken at all

but this is all a cash grab by Lavar. Hes circumventing the NCAA and profitting off his sons the same way the NCAA is. And I know as long as they are in college all 3 of them Lavar will continue this for the next few years

after all 3 are finally in the league? I could see Lavar calming down due to NBA clubs and his sons getting tired of it

Except Chris Rock, lol. And if Lonzo isn't half white I'd be shocked. That's the real reason they didn't win and he won't go #1.


But seriously, once I heard the story about the mother, I have given up hope on this family. Money and fame are most important.

Well its another comment made by Lavar Ball to keep him relevant in the news. He needs to say something to continue to market his sons and his brand of clothing. It makes sense because he is either a guy you think is awesome or a guy that you would love to punt in his dirty tooth.

As far as Lonzo saying he would rather get drafted by the Lakers then number 1 that's childish but also been done before by several athletes. If I am a GM of a team I honestly do not want that headache because it would be a circus for a while even though you would get tons of time on ESPN/FS1/Undisputed/First Take/The Herd etc. He is a quality player yes but not a generational can't miss type of talent. If another team drafts him he would come up with something to mess with contracts or distract in the locker room. Then you add Lavar to the mix.

If I am the Lakers I would see how much it means to him to play for the Lakers and I draft him in the 2nd with the #62 pick. That is if some idiot GM wants the attention and circus that he would bring to the franchise.

Blacks like LaVar, get away with everything and get all the handouts.

But ask him if he's being racist and he'll say it's impossible for a melanin skin tone to be racist.

He should be blaming it on Lonzo being out there looking like he doesn't give a **** whether they win or lose. He played that game with no effort or energy at all, it was embarrassing.

And does Lonzo's refusal to refuse this nonsense raise any concerns about his character? I'd almost feel better about him as a prospect if he came out and said "my dad is goddamn crazy, ignore what he says."
