Here’s the interview where Lavar Ball made the initial comments.
He then backed up and reiterated his comments again on ESPN.
Now I’m all for being proud and having confidence in your son, especially if said son is a guaranteed top 3 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. But could Lonzo’s dad possibly be any more “That Dad?” The guy is just shutting down any possible negative comparison of his son. Nope, he cannot even be compared to one of the greatest players on the planet. That’s insulting to Lonzo, what were we thinking on that one? I’m gonna let you have this one Lavar, for now. But come this time next year if Lonzo’s not taking place in All-Star weekend festivities, you’re gonna have some ‘splainin to do!
