During his appearance on the Road Trippin’ podcast with Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye and Allie Clifton, LaVar Ball discussed why he felt LaMelo would be a good fit in New York. But in typical LaVar fashion, he also added a bit of spice at the end. “I know he likes the bright lights and the way New York is. They haven’t been good in I don’t know how long.
So I’m like, ‘You know what, I don’t need my boy to follow nobody. I need him to create his own lane, create something that’s special over there.” Now, the place ain’t really got nothing to do with it. They have to have a new culture change over there to make this thing work. What I’m telling them is get Melo, you’re going to get Gelo and you’re going to see chemistry. And then find a way to get Zo and then you’ve got triple B’s, the Ball boys on broadway.”
