Breakin’ down the Foolishness that is LaVar Ball and there are no excuses! “That Dude”

"I'm just takin' a quick break bruh. I'll be back!"

Now that the LaVar Ball Show has, at least, been temporarily been cancelled by the network. Let me give you boyz some perspective on duns like him. In every hood or suburban little league program there’s always That dude!! We’ve all seen him and we all know how he gets down. He’s the dun that never really accomplished whatever he sat out to accomplish in his life so now his kids have to become, at all costs, what he didn’t become.

Oh, this is real talk today playboy!! He’s the dun that NOBODY (parent or coaches) in the little league wants to be around because he’s just way over the top. Sure, we all want the best for our kids and we all want them to give their very best. But at some point we understand that we have to get out of the way and let a boy sink or swim. Most importantly, we understand that if we push too hard the dun under our leadership can and will implode.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! What blew my mind in all of this foolishness were the people that were defendin’ this cat for bein’ a father and for bein’ in his kids life. Bruh…those are two separate conversations. But since you wanna go there you don’t get credit for takin’ care of your OWN kids and bein’ visible in your OWN child’s life. Regardless of what the statistics say playa, that is the bare minimum that you are SUPPOSED to do. Just because 80 percent of cats out here are a suckas and don’t raise their kids doesn’t make you a hero for doin’ what you’re SUPPOSED to be doin’ anyway.

That’s like when I hear single fully grown women standin’ up on the table hollerin’, “I got my own job, my own car, my own money and my own house!” 

If you’re single and you’re a grown woman you’re SUPPOSED to have your own job, car, money and home. How else are you supposed to survive? A man is supposed to be there for his children to protect them etc. So stop repeatin’ foolishness because it sounds good.

All of this madness wasn’t about LaVar Ball’s kids it was about LaVar Ball! Because if it were about his kids and his kids ONLY we wouldn’t even know what his freakin’ name was. He got high on that drug called fame and now he’s addicted to it.

If it were about his kids then he’d be sittin’ in the cut watchin’ this thing play out. He’d be workin’ in the background makin’ sure things are movin’ in the right direction for the NBA draft and whatever marketin’ deals he’s tryin’ to line up.

Now don’t get it twisted, I love what he’s done with marketin’ the “Big Baller Brand!” However, it could still have been marketed by him simply showin’ up and wearin’ the joint at the games. Social media is a MONSTER and boyz would have been all over it because it’s something new that Lonzo Ball’s dad was wearin’. Not something that LAVAR BALL TOLD YOU ABOUT WHILE HE WAS TELLING YOU THAT LEBRON’S KIDS WERE WACK AND HOW HE COULD BEAT JORDAN ONE ON ONE AND HIS KID WAS BETTER THAN STEPH CURRY!

That foolishness was about LaVar Ball wantin’ to be famous and in the process he through his kid out into the middle of hood traffic and his kid ain’t from the hood.

So now every dun with something to prove over the next six to nine months is lookin’ for Lonzo Ball. Veteran NBA cats are goin’ to come his way lookin’ to take his lunch money just to make his daddy go away. This is real grown man basketball bruh and you aren’t goin’ to act like it ain’t what it already is. Stop me when I start lyin’!
