LaVar Ball Rumors
LaVar said, calling out the NCAA: “The only thing they worried about is the money. How you thinking about not saying that the shoe look good or nothing like that? The first thing they’re trying to say is. ‘How can we make him ineligible?’ This has never happened before. So, you don’t even have a rule for it. You’re trying to find one. To say, ‘Yo, we gotta make him ineligible because he can’t be making money off a shoe.’”
He continued: “See here’s the thing, he’s not even in the NCAA and they’re trying to make something. He’s got two more years! So why even worry about that right now? But here’s the thing, when it comes to basketball and you’re good, you just better be ready for training camp … Who cares? He won’t go to the NCAA. ‘Oh, he better go overseas.’ Why? All he gotta do is be faster and stronger. And when it’s time to prepare, we could sit out for as long as we want.”
During Wednesday’s appearance on First Take, LaVar guaranteed that his son, Lonzo Ball, would lead the Lakers to a 50-plus win season right off the bat. Given that the West is completely stacked this season, Smith completely lost his mind over the outrageous prediction. Immediately after Lonzo was drafted by the Lakers, LaVar predicted that the Lakers would make the playoffs in Lonzo’s first year, but he didn’t put a number on the actual win total.
In a totally precedented move, outspoken basketball dad LaVar Ball has said something ridiculous. The latest on his Big Baller Brand, according to Slam, comes via a live Instagram question and answer session in which he discussed making his own signature shoe. “I just don’t know when I’m coming out with it yet. ‘The LaVar-iccis!’ Holler at your boy! But I will give you a tip,” Ball said. “Make sure you save your money because they’re gonna be $1,500 or more. Cause I’m gonna design them and they’re gonna be fly. My bad—they’re gonna be baller-ized.”
Chuckled Curry of LaVar Ball: “I don’t know him at all. … They (the Ball family) are obviously unique and they are doing it their way. You can say a lot about the power in that. … And I think Lonzo wore my shoes. Hey, that’s somebody who wants to wear my shoes!”
