Why Lonzo Ball’s dad NEEDS to go somewhere and sit down! “In The Way”

"Im goin' to keep dictating policy playa no matter what you say!"

Will somebody please tell UCLA’s Lonzo Ball’s dad, LaVar, that this isn’t Daddy Ball in elementary school? Will somebody tell this dun that this isn’t his son’s high school recruitment to college? Will somebody tell him that he can no longer dictate policy as to where his son will play next? Will somebody just tell the dun to go somewhere and sit his butt down? And that’s the edited the version.

The dun jumped on SportsRadio1290 in Arizona and said that  “his son will play for one team and one team only come NBA draft time: The Los Angeles Lakers.” What!!!?

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! What world does this cat live in bruh? This is the NBA not Grant Street Little League where you can team up with your homeboy that has a kid that can ball too and coach together so you can dominate the little league.

He’s got no control over who draft’s his son! The Lakers today have the third pick but that could change dependin’ upon how the rest of the season shakes out. Not to mention how the draft lottery ends up. So to say his kid will only play for the Lakers is asinine to even spit up.

Boyz makin’ moves on draft day aren’t thinkin’ about makin’ Lonzo Ball’s daddy happy! Where is this cat from? Once he’s drafted and if he turns out to be as good as advertised he’ll play with the same team for at least 7 years playa. He’ll get his rookie deal and then once that joint is up the team will be able to offer the extension and be able to match whatever bread anybody else offers the dun. So his old man’s got no say in this foolishness until he plays through at least two contracts.

I know that ole boy has three kids that are phenomenal ball players and that can, to some degree, make you as a parent, delusional. He’s been able to dictate everything up to this point and everybody’s been kissin’ his butt to get his sons to play for them. Well playboy, the buck stops here. The NBA controls the strings now. Sure, Lonzo and his daddy can refuse to play for any other team but he won’t play in the league unless a dun wants to trade his draft rights. He could pull an Eli Manning but will the Lakers be willin’ to give up whatever to get him? Because the dun that holds the draft rights will want a lung and both kidneys to trade him away.

Ole boy is the same cat that jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth a few weeks ago and said that his son was better than Steph Curry! The same Steph that has been playin’ in the NBA for the past 9 years that has become the greatest shooter in the history of the league. That Steph Curry.

He’s comparin’ his son, that hasn’t even finished his freshman year of college, to the greatest shooter in NBA history, oh by the way, who is the back to back MVP of the league that’s been to two straight NBA Finals and won one. Now I’m not sayin’ the kid can’t become better than Steph at some point because I truly don’t know. What I do know is that he’s playin’ against college players right now and he’s yet to step onto an NBA court. There’s nothin’ special about the dun right now bruh! He’s only averagin’ 15 points, 7.5 assists and 6.3 rebounds per game playin’ against college players!!!! He’s not doin’ anything extraordinary right now!! He’s not John Wall, Melo, Anthony Davis, Carl Anthony Towns or Steph at the college level yet. He’s not even the best shooter on his team!! Bryce Alford is a better shooter than he is right now. So how is this dun hollerin’ about him bein’ better than Steph at the NBA level already. C’mon bruh!!!

So to put that type of pressure on your kid is ignorant. He’s the classic example of the dad that’s livin’ vicariously through his kids. Let the dun play the game and move at his own pace. He doesn’t need that type of pressure thrown on his back once he gets drafted. Get out of the way and let the process do what it’s goin’ to do. If he’s the real deal we’ll find out soon enough. If he’s not we’ll find out soon enough. Stop me when I start lyin’!
