Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.
His father is weird and overbearing, but that's been the case with some wildly successful athletes. Tiger Woods and the Williams sisters come immediately to mind. Of course, there's also Todd Maranovich.
Sounds like a complete tool that is simply trying to live vicariously through his sons. Dude has sounded crazy every time I've listened to him.I want no part of Ball or the baggage that is his father. They seem like LA people through and through, let Magic deal with that nonsense. Give me Fultz, Jackson, or Tatum over Ball any day.On another note - I've seen people talking a lot about Tatum being a long-term quicker 4 in the NBA similar to Jabari Parker. Is that true? If so, he becomes a lot more intriguing to me due to his potential fit for us.
Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions.
He basically says he controls and will control his kids until they are out there making their own living. He says he made them what they are so they owe a lot to him.
Yes Potter Tatum is looking world class right now. Not a wow athlete, but a very good athlete. 6'8" smooth hybrid , A mix between Pierce and Joe Johnson, does everything well. Excellent rebounder, good handle, passing ability, great body with wide shoulders.
I watched the video and came away with a very different impression. It seems like the kids love to play ball, with parents that are uber supportive. Sure he's different than most parents, but I like people who think and act independently and creatively.Still love Lonzo as a player.
