LaVar Ball has never been one to keep his opinions to himself. The Big Baller Brand entrepreneur recently revealed his plans for his sons’ NBA careers, including whether or not his youngest son, LaMelo, would follow in his brother Lonzo’s footsteps and join the Los Angeles Lakers.
“Common sense would tell you, hell no,” Ball told Complex. “You did something to my boy Lonzo, and you think I’m going to come back with the others? I gotta be stone-cold crazy.” He explained that at one point, he did want Melo to be a Laker, but “that ship done sailed.”
The 55-year-old continued, “You get rid of ‘Zo and you think I’m going to come back? I’m not that type of foolish guy.” Melo is currently playing for the Charlotte Hornets.
The controversial businessman also revealed that ideally, he’d like for all three of his sons to be on the same team. “It’s going to happen, all three of them are going to play on the same team; and when it happens, folks are going to go crazy,” said the former athlete.
When pressed about that notion, he stood firm on his dream. “At some point, all of their contracts are over, and they come up at the same time; you don’t think they’re going to make the decision to be together? Ball boys are good for business.”
For Ball, it isn’t even about the team, but about the coach. “Who’s going to let all my boys do what they do?,” he questioned. Naturally, he added that he is the perfect coach to lead the charge.
