Saying the NBA will be easier for Lonzo than college
For as good as Lonzo has been at UCLA, his father thinks the NBA game will be better tailored to his skill set. In an interview with TMZ, Old Man Ball said he thinks Lonzo will have an easier time picking defenses apart in the NBA than he does in college.
It’s way too early to project what kind of player LaMelo will be in college, but it’s worth noting 247Sports rates him as the No. 3 recruit in the class of 2019. He certainly could be a one and done, even if that’s an incredibly presumptuous thing to say right now.
LiAngelo will be the real test. The 6’6 shooting guard will be at UCLA next season, but he’s only rated as a three star recruit by ESPN.
Then again, LaVar never said all three of his kids will be drafted after going the one and done route. Being a one and done is up to the player even more than it’s up to the NBA.
“Someone has to be better than cheap cheap Michael Jordan jersey jersey. Why not you?”
This is LaVar’s favorite anecdote.
“We’ve got a plan, and everything’s going accordingly,” he said. “They were born to go pro. I told them, ‘Somebody has to be better than cheap cheap Michael Jordan jersey jersey. Why not you?'”
Why not LaVar Ball?
“Back in my heyday, I would kill cheap cheap Michael Jordan jersey jersey one on one,” Ball told USA TODAY Sports.”I would just back him in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left. He cannot stop me one on one. He better make every shot ’cause he can’t go around me. He’s not fast enough. And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim.”
Saying Lonzo Ball is better than cheap Stephen Curry jersey
“I have the utmost confidence in what my boy is doing,” LaVar Ball said via TMZ. “He’s better than Steph Curry to me. Put Steph Curry on UCLA’s team right now and put my boy on Golden State and watch what happens.”
Doubling down on his son being better than Curry
“He’s going to be better than Steph Curry,” Ball said, according to TMZ. “Steph Curry’s really good, but my son is young, he’s got time to go. And you only consider him good because he won a couple of championships. What if he didn’t win no championships? He made some shots at the right time. But he’s not as young as my boy.”
He guaranteed UCLA wins an NCAA championship
“I’m going to tell you right now before you see it,” LaVar said . “UCLA is going to win the NCAA championship. You think I’m playing? Right here and right now. Guaranteed. Come see me when they win it.”
Saying his kids will sign a $1 billion shoe deal
“A billion dollars, it has to be there,” Ball told USA Today in an article published Monday. “That’s our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don’t even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 million a year.”
Saying LeBron’s kids would have trouble following in his footsteps
“You got LeBron it’s going to be hard for his kids because they are going to look at them like, ‘You got to be just like your dad,'” Ball said on the wholesale basketball jerseys In the Zone with Chris Broussard podcast. “And after a while, that pressure starts sitting on you like, ‘Why do I got to be just like him? What can’t I just be me?’ And then they are going to be like, ‘Aw, you’re soft. You’re not that good.’ Because the expectation is very, very high.”
