Lavar Ball represents everything that is wrong with sports.

If only loudmouth oafish self-promotion was all that was wrong with sports.

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.

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.
I agree. Like jemele hill, colin kaepernick, etc

It takes a certain type of ears to hear that particular dog whistle. Be thankful you don't have them.

I find him insufferable but I don't fault him for acting the way he does. As a businessman, in this media climate, it's smart.

And I don't even blame ESPN and FS1 for putting him on. I blame all the people who tune in for the stupidity, giving the networks a financial incentive (ratings, clicks, etc.) to keep it up.

I guess if you think someone exercising her right to free speech on twitter, and someone wearing socks with pigs on them with police hats are some of the worst things in sports, then sports are doing pretty well right now!

Personally I think there are countless other issues (like domestic violence in the NFL) that are infinitely worse than the 2 “issues” you brought up.

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

Yeah, I just don't see it. I've watched several of LaMelo's games, and he'll get eaten alive at the college level.

Hello fellows!

I want some Mello Yellow with my Strawberry Jello.

Don't sleep on Lavar - you will be eating crow if in a few years all three of his sons are in Purple and Gold.

Danny had better beef up this squad. Don't sleep on Magic (or Lavar).

Get Marvelous Marvin Bagley ready for us, Coach K - we're going to need him against the Ball Invasion.
