Hes a loud obnoxious **** but by all accounts a great father.

Hes sending 3 boys to UCLA and one of his children is a millionaire at age 22. Lonzo is also by all accounts a very humble and likeable kid.

Hate the dad all you want, but dont say the kids need to be saved from him. Hes a great father.
Well one of them certainly won't be going to UCLA now

You guys sure know how to demonize and slight everything someone does once you decide you don't like them.

He seems to be a pretty admirable dad from everything I've seen.

I think he is much worse than you suggest, that is a sugar coating if I have ever seen it.   Yes, he promotes his children but he also puts a ton of pressure on them, too.  Good or bad he is kind of entertaining.

And he could have beat Jordan in his prime, don't forget that JK

Lavar Ball reminds me SO MUCH of folks I talk to / listen to at the Barbershop over the years.

Harmless, intelligent, boisterous at times and FUNNY.

I've read enough of Lavar to know that while his methods seem a bit unorthodox at times he loves his family and is protective of them.

Not worried about Lavar at all. BUT I am concerned about Lonzo - we're going to have our hands FULL with him for the next 10-15 years.

His children are thriving.

Maybe we should ask our own Jaylen what he thinks about
pressure. 😉
