Ball's three sons are spectacularly talented.
LaVar is the outspoken father of UCLA star freshman Lonzo Ball.
Those comments are pretty insane, but this one he made about beating Michael Jordan in a game of 1-on-1 in his prime is just asinine. "I don't have to pay for education".
You can't tell me these three juniors, and that's what they are, are worth the same as the best player we have seen on court since Michael Jordan.
"Kareem's got sons, Jordan's got sons, Shaq's got sons".
Anyway Lavar, wouldn't you want to save money on your taxes for your billion dollar shoe deal by living in Arizona instead of California anyway? Ball says his sons already drive $100,000 cars. He had just played college ball (one season with Washington State and then transferred to Cal State- Los Angeles) and met his future wife Tina, also a basketball player for Cal State-LA.
McDonough added that National Basketball Association players come from all sorts of different backgrounds, some of which make it all the more impressive that they get to the highest level of the sport. Barkley responded to that jab thusly: "I don't know what his basketball career was, but I'd put mine up against his". He said Lonzo would be better than Golden State Warriors All-Star Stephen Curry, for example.
It's apparent that this basketball stage dad loves having the stage for himself. The whole quote was pretty interesting, but it was also pretty insane, considering that I'm not sure anyone could have topped Jordan in one-on-one back in the day. Quote-hungry media can't resist him, and he seems to regard giving interviews as you or I would breathing air. We'd be wise to trust his assessment either way should Ball be on the board when the Celtics are on the clock. Maybe he's going to be a recurring nuisance. That same year, Jordan was dropping 35 points a night in the National Basketball Association en route to his first Most Valuable Player award. That might be hard because of Nash's affinity for San Francisco and his wish to be somewhat near L.A. for his documentary, but you never know.
