It is with a heavy coronary heart that I inform you that LaVar Ball is again on his bullshit. After principally receding from public view, moreover his household’s actuality present Ball within the Family, LaVar has returned with a vengeance — and with capital-T Takes. In explicit, Ball hopes that his son LaMelo, arguably the highest prospect on this 12 months’s draft, doesn’t get picked by the Golden State Warriors.
“That’s the part I don’t like about Golden State,” LaVar said on the “Say Less with Kaz” podcast. “They got Klay and the other guys, and now you want to put Melo in that mix to say you got to follow these guys. Melo ain’t no follower. He don’t need to do what they do, let them do they thing.”
LaVar added: “There’s a reason you are looking at my son. He’s talented and can play the game. It ain’t that hard. Guy is open, and you pass it to them. You open and you been working on your shot? Shoot the ball. It’s fast-paced, it’s good. But don’t be like Melo got to his turn and wait for two or three years to go by and learn from the veterans. Ain’t about that. Can you play or not?”
Luckily, that is most likely a moot level for the reason that Warriors don’t need LaMelo both. Instead, LaVar expressed as soon as once more that he desires his progeny to play for the New York Knicks. Why the Knicks, chances are you’ll ask? The reply: They’re an incompetent clown present with no gamers adequate to take the highlight from LaMelo and have a barren sufficient roster that the Balls can absolutely take over the franchise.
“[The Knicks] don’t have anything,” LaVar continued. “The last time they won a championship back in the ’70s. The bright lights. You need a whole new turnaround over there. The person I want to see him play with, they got to know this, if you’re getting Melo, you’re getting Gelo [LiAngelo Ball] … And after that, you have a chance to get Zo [Lonzo Ball]. You don’t need one person to change no franchise. You need the whole culture change and that takes all three of my boys … That would be the biggest show in the NBA ever.”
