I've heard this younger kid isn't even all that good.

The most interesting part of that article  
MetsAreBack : 12/4/2017 6:08 pm : link
is that UCLA said they dont even want the third Ball at this point.
Another over the top sports dad

He's doing his sons no favors but it seems that's not his main focus.

I get the impression his kid wishes he could pull down that hat and hoodie.
Lavar Ball is a selfish embarassment  
Jay on the Island : 12/4/2017 6:44 pm : link
I feel bad for Lonzo and I hope that he finds the courage to tell his father to fuck off.
I wish I could go a week without hearing about this buffoon.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 12/4/2017 9:19 pm : link
Probably not going to happen for awhile. And Li'Angelo apparently isn't even that good.
Todd Marinovich thinks Lavar is a psychotic ďdadĒ.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 12/4/2017 9:54 pm : link
No wonder Lonzo canít settle down and just play basketball.
He has serious mental issues  
BigBlue4You09 : 12/4/2017 10:03 pm : link
He needs help

Me too. And Lavar isnít just another over involved sports dad. A couple of my college buddies are that. Heís on another planet

If anyone's dad behaved like this then he doesn't deserve respect. He is creating a circus around his son and causes many people to hate Lonzo and want him to fail mostly because of the behavior of Lavar. It is pathetic how he is trying to live vicariously through his son and behaving as if he is the star. To make matters worse LiAngelo isn't even a prospect. There are reports that he will have a difficult time finding a team oversees willing to sign him not because of his shitshow of a father but because he lacks the talent.

For the record I respect my father and I would never talk that way to him.

aren't about his dad. He cant play an NBA game at this point. That's his problem.

I have no idea whether you are right or wrong but I applaud the Marx Brothers reference.
So, what happens when he isn't drafted?  
Matt M. : 12/5/2017 12:15 am : link
His NCAA eligibility is shot, right? So he has no career and no education.

That says more about the people than it does Ball .... you hate on a kid cause of his dad ... Ie I hate person X because of person Y.

He is having a VERY positive influence on games .... other than shooting what more do you want? He rebounds, makes plays passing and playing some D. His shot is crap but in the mold of a true PG is getting the job done. Now should he went #2 I dont think so.

No unless he hires an agent. Which he wont. So no it will not be.
Positive impact on games?  
KWALL2 : 12/5/2017 11:15 am : link
That's BS.

They are more efficient on offense without him on the court.

He doesn't create in half court. And his offensive game makes it easier to defend others.

He's been brutal. And it isn't just about shooting.
"VERY" positive?  
KWALL2 : 12/5/2017 11:17 am : link
That's so far off the mark. Just the opposite. He's a liability.
risky move  
Les in TO : 12/5/2017 11:21 am : link
the kid is not likely going to be drafted based on current scouting feedback.
he'll go play in Europe so Lavar can try to grow the BBB  
jlukes : 12/5/2017 11:23 am : link
internationally.
The BBB brand is crashing

Nobody is buying the shoes or $60 tshirts now and that slim market share will disappear very soon.

Not likely? No, he won't get drafted this year.

Maybe three years down the road. But he's got nothing in his game that an NBA team needs. At best - a standstill shooter. And at that, he's only okay.
I kinda feel bad for that kid  
Heisenberg : 12/5/2017 12:32 pm : link
The expectations his dad has set up for him are hard to match.
Say this about Gelo  
Stan in LA : 12/5/2017 1:14 pm : link
He ended his career with UCLA with 3 steals...
