He also said his other sons LaMelo and LiAngelo will join Lonzo and play for the Lakers, and they'll "not be about the money." he's insinuating they'll force themselves there or take paycuts to join the lakers

50 games combined in the next 2 seasons perhaps.

It's impressive that his shtick hasn't completely worn out by now.

Lavar Ball represents everything that is wrong with sports.

The other two barely seem like college-level material, let alone NBA material. I'd be surprised if either of them make the league.

Yeah, I guess it's good for LAL that two additional roster spots came into effect with two-way contracts. That way they can keep Lavar/Lonzo happy without bogging down actual roster spots with those two.

Entitlement without actually having earned it (hype without substance) and using your kids as puppets aren't exactly positives either. Somebody really needs to teach the guy the meaning of of the word, modesty.

It's not Lonzo's fault, but he isn't exactly stopping it. I hate to wish ill-will on his children, but I don't want to see this behavior encouraged in the future.

even though I agree mostly, LaMelo is ranked 7th overall by ESPN for his class. LiAngelo is unranked. I could see a scenario where Lakers move up in the draft to get lamelo and then sign liangelo to a 2 way d league contract to appease the dad. I feel like the Lakers are stuck now and if they don't do what lavar says, he will move the 3 to the clippers as a package of something. Lavar is crazy enough to try something like this


The 3 will be represented by their own sports agency and I personally feel like this is why, itll be strong arm negotiations forcing the team to sign all 3. Also to cut costs of course. Maybe I'm reading too much into these guys lol

He annoys me, but over time I'm starting to think he's the Mozart of conducting the media. He makes Belichick and even Trump look like they're playing in a sandbox (I can't think of any other good examples at this moment in time).

And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Does this fool realize that there is a draft process in the NBA?  I guess he's admitting that Melo and Gelo won't get drafted.

The younger brother is often considered better than Lonzo was as a similar age.  At the Final ESPN 100 Lonzo was ranked 4th (with a 96 grade).  For the 2019 class, LaMelo is currently ranked 7th (with a 95 grade) so that could adjust by the time the ESPN rankings are finalized.  Either way, he is at least considered near Lonzo from the talent and potential standpoint.

LiAngelo was a 3 star recruit with a 79 rating and outside the top 100 (the lowest rating in the top 100 was 83).  He is a freshman at UCLA this year, and is clearly not in the potential class of Lonzo or LaMelo, but a 79 rating isn't terrible and the family is clearly talented, so with a couple of years at UCLA could turn into a NBA caliber player.

I mean the guy's clearly a tool, though since I don't watch sports shows I'm blissfully free from hearing any of that crap directly. I just think there are a lot worse things in sports than some idiot babbling on TV about how awesome his kids are.

lol.

No one loves his sons more than him - which is the way it's supposed to be.

I wouldn't sleep on The Lakers. Magic and Lonzo alone will get them a few games.
