Hot off the SI press, Lavar thinks that the only reason UCLA lost is because UCLA rolled out 3 white guys "whose foot speed is too slow."

Also apparently the only reason Fox dropped 39 on Lonzo is that lonzo's hamstring popped.

Im done with this premadonna family. Let this discriminating **** have his son go to LA. He and his family are mentally weak if they feel the need to do this kind of yapping. He is the kind of distraction that can derail a rebuild.




 We can agree that The dad is a poopface talking butthole. Please though we must separate him from his kids.

 Lonzo is a quite and peaceful kid by nature, certainly not nurture.

Everything I have read indicates that Lonzo listens to what his dad says very intently. I mean the guy ran rampant and undermind his kids coaches for years. And he hasnt even tried to say his dad may be wrong on some of this. So as Lavar gets more and more toxic, Lonzo needs to make a comment. He needs to be a man. I understand its his father, but there comes a limit.




 Lonzo said to his teammates his an idiot, after a teammate mentioned the 1 billion for three sons comment.

 You have to admit he couldn't act much more different than his father. He's very well mannered in the public eye.

Here's the latest Draft Express article:

http://www.draftexpress.com/article/lonzo-ball-nba-draft-scouting-report-and-video-analysis-5886/

A few key quotes:

When Lonzo Ball arrived at UCLA last fall, he was looking to revive a program which had collapsed down the stretch the previous year. UCLA went just 6-12 in Pac-12 play in the season before Ball's arrival, and lost ten of their last 13 games to close out the 2015-16 campaign. Armed by the arrival of Ball and fellow freshmen T.J. Leaf and Ike Anigbogu, UCLA would undergo one of the more dramatic turnarounds in recent memory. Propelled by Lonzo Ball's frenetic style of play and the best offense in the country, UCLA powered their way to a 31-5 record and a three seed in the NCAA tournament. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/lonzo-ball-nba-draft-scouting-report-and-video-analysis-5886/ ©DraftExpress

When discussing the Lonzo Ball experience, it would be impossible not to start with his elite transition play. Ball his virtually the entire package in this regard ... his creativity and vision are nothing short of elite. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/lonzo-ball-nba-draft-scouting-report-and-video-analysis-5886/ ©DraftExpress, - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/lonzo-ball-nba-draft-scouting-report-and-video-analysis-5886/ ©DraftExpress

His biggest limiting factor at this stage is that he just doesn't show much ability to consistently get into the paint off the dribble, even at the college level. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/lonzo-ball-nba-draft-scouting-report-and-video-analysis-5886/ ©DraftExpress

On the defensive side of the court, Ball does enough off the ball in terms of forcing turnovers and crashing the defensive glass to not be a total non-contributor, but he does have his weaknesses as well, and probably has neither the versatility or impact that his physical profile and steal/block output suggest. Ball struggles at times denying dribble penetration against quicker guards, and he can get absolutely blown up by screens, lacking both the awareness to recognize the screen and make the correct read while also struggling with the physicality to fight through the screen. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/lonzo-ball-nba-draft-scouting-report-and-video-analysis-5886/ ©DraftExpress

Still #2 on their Mock.

 Bahaha! Didn't get your billion dollars you fool! Good, you moron, loudmouth, jerk!

 Why do some people want that much money anyway? Lonzo will make well over 100 million playing hoops, and you may have screwed his chance at making another 100 million in endorsements. Nice job dad.

This guy is a nut job, and I don't want him anywhere near the C's. He's already harming his son's career by insisting on his own brand being picked up. Living vicariously, anyone?

 What can Lonzo fo to protect himself Potter. Put yourself in his shoes. Now that he's an adult would you go back to Nike and say listen I'll sign a contract saying that guy gets no say whatsoever.

His dad is a joke. What multi Million/Billion dollar company is going to buy rights to a brand off of a kid who hasn't even been drafted. He's done nothing. And if he's a bust, that company would be a laughing stock.

Apparently Lavar doesn't believe in earning you keep, he just wants it all handed to his kids. There is nothing wrong with signing a short contract, and then in the second bring in the branding.

And Lavar saying how much richer Jordan and Woods would be if they did it his way is a joke. I think Joirdan and Woods do just fine, more money than they can spend.

Oh, and no #$& way would I want him on the team unless he divorced his dad. And even then, I'd rather have Fultz,Jackson, or Tatum.

He has already cost his son millions of dollars with his loud mouth. What an egomaniac. Trying to live his dreams through his children and hurting them while doing it.

Baller brand website is a joke. They're selling cheap looking t shirts with the logo for $60

Never in the history of modern-day shoe endorsements have the big companies all stepped away from a potential top pick nearly two months before the NBA draft. But LaVar, who has been representing Lonzo in the deal, has offered something that has no precedent lol
