NFT: NBA Talk: Lavar Ball says Lonzo will not resign with Lakers

superspynyg : 2/13/2018 10:57 am
unless they draft his other kids. FYI Lonzo has a two year deal with club options for two years (19-20 and 20-21).


This guy is a complete joke. If I was the Lakers I would trade him for peanuts or sit him until he tells his father to go pound sand.
Where does he think that Lonzo would go?

3 brothers all get drafted and stay on 1 team's pro roster Is when Lavar buys an NBA team.
You would trade your #2 and PG of the future

for "peanuts", asking nearly nothing in return, harming and setting your franchise back over the player's father attempting to stay relevant in the media?

I hope Jeanie Buss calls you up and gets rid of Pelinka!

totally ignore this goofball. They certainly shouldn't make personnel choices because of some crazy shit he says.

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 2/13/2018 11:27 am : link
never won a Super Bowl. That's now done.

Now I want to live the rest of my life & die without ever hearing about LaVar Ball again. I'm rooting against his sons primarily so they wash out & we're not subjected to the rants of this narcissistic P.T. Barnum clown.
Lonzo Ball

I'm still not sure why the Lakers took this guy with Tatum and Jackson on the board, not good enough to be worth the headache.

If Magic Johnson can't garner respect from Lavar Ball, nobody can.
Lavar Ball is only relevant because people keep reading what he says  
GiantFilthy : 2/13/2018 11:30 am : link
and posting it. To be honest though, anything he has said, and he has said some dumb shit, but NONE of it comes close to being as controversial as some of the things Lonzo himself has personally said recently about his own coach and teammates.
Heís not going to resign?  
Jim in Fairfax : 2/13/2018 11:30 am : link
So, then heís going to stay with the Lakers?
Please...

Lavar Ball would destroy Magic in a game of 1 on 1.

Over the sons. That's sad and also the sign of a sociopath quite frankly. I mean it doesn't take any expert to see he's completely using his sons for his own personal and material gain. I hope for their own sake that one day they all tell him to get lost.
Not a very good person

That's only true because Lonzo has sucked (so far). If LeBron had 2 brothers and said he'll only play for a team that drafts him, you'd have 30 teams vying for the services of those 2, even if they were lead footed and 5'5".
LeBron's going to go the Lakers ...

just because he was drafted 2nd overall does not make him the future. The OSU guy they took 2nd overall was traded and he did not have the baggage that Ball has with his father. Plus Ball is not playing like a superstar. I would like to see what IT has for the rest of the year and make a decision then.

"If they donít take Gelo this year, I bring back Gelo here [to Lithuania], to play with Melo for two years. Lonzo will be on his third year, and I [will] let every NBA team know that Lonzo is not going to re-sign with the Lakers, but will go to any team that will take all of my three boys. Thatís my plan.Ē

A totally different regime drafted that OSU guy. What makes Lonzo the future is the current regime that drafted him jumping on every opportunity to make sure everyone on earth knows he is the future.

This is Lavar Ball trying to force the Lakers  
Jay on the Island : 2/13/2018 12:46 pm : link
To give his other son a spot on the roster because Lavar knows his son isnít a legitimate prospect. Lavar is a horrible human being who is using his sons to further his own agenda. Does he honestly think that this behavior will help Lonzo?

I keep hearing this but why would Lebron go to a team where he would zero chance of winning a championship?

I keep hearing THAT but any team with Lebron, and especially a Lebron with Paul George and blossoming Ingram will never, ever have zero chance at winning.

Add in Porzingis in 2020 and hard to think of a team with better odds.

lavar ball is symptomatic of the age we live in - lying, attention-whores spouting off nonsense to get everyone riled up and have the spotlight on them at all times.

according to the team's website, Liangelo is averaging 9-2-1 in 20 minutes per game and Lamelo is averaging 8-1-3 in 14 minutes a game. I know they're teens playing against men, but still ... it's a pretty low level league.

Lonzo gonna be joining the thief and chipmunk in Lithuania if Lavar pulls his crap. No team will take Lonzo seriously if this is a stipulation.

Neither is a legitimate prospect. I believe Liangelo is considered a "fringe prospect" meaning possible 2nd round pick someday. LiAngelo won't be drafted and isn't considered an NBA talent. This is a case of Lavar Ball trying to blackmail the Lakers into giving his other sons roster spots even though they don't deserve it.

I can think of quite a few ways to turn this into gold.

I'd sign all three and have them be floor sweepers when sweat gets on the court. Or put them in as the cannon shooters in the arena.

Put them in the concourse wearing T-shirts that say "Come see the Lakers and have a Ball".

I'd find ways to fuck with Lavar 10 ways to Sunday just to expose what a cancerous, loud-mouthed idiot he is.
