Thoughts on LaVar Ball.

Is he helping or hindering his talented children's chances in the NBA. If I were a top 3 team, I would not be picking lonzo ball and having to deal with that loser. Would GMs feel the same way to a certain point?

His two younger son's high school team just lost in semis right after the ESPN feature on the family aired. I'm sure the kids from the opposition saw it and thought wtf at the arrogance and used it as motivation. All three sons look quite placid actually but the dad is always on them to be aggressive. Was a little cringeworthy to watch their homelife and the way he carried on.

Terrible attitude. The guy wants to be in the spotlight.

A billion dollar contract amongst the brothers... keep dreaming.

A very average college player trying to live his dream through his sons. So many people will be hoping they fail due him being a complete dick. No way Nike,adidas or under armour sign them, hell, Delly's Peak deal would look to be attractive. Cringeworthy every time he opens his mouth. Sad for the kids, I think teams will be scared off in terms of marketing, wants Lakers to sign eldest but where does he stand with Clarkson and Russell already there as guards, and unless I'm mistaken will only keep pick if in top 3, will they take risk.
Possibly the worst parent in terms of basketball, normally reserved for tennis like a Dokic.

Over the past couple of weeks I've constantly had the thought that if I could pick any two people in the world at the moment I'd like to punch in the face, they'd be LaVar Ball and Virat Kohli

He was quite entertaining here

He says outrageous stuff on purpose to get a reaction out of people. It sounds like he has been doing it all his life although now people actually listen to him.

And the media will keep going to him for more and he won't be able to resist the opportunities for exposure and attention.

Yeah I thought it was hilarious when Barkley called him out and Lavar said Barkley was only mentioning him to stay relevant. This clown has no clue. His boys must be hoping he shuts his mouth and let's them live THEIR dream.

Haha, it's gotten to the point now where even on ESPN now which usually is positive to everyone has its anchors openly admitting they want to punch him.

Doubt he would impact any shoe contracts or anything else. He's not going to be the kids agent and have that kind of control over their careers. Maybe he has a say now, but doubt that continues and ever eventuates into something that would be a major impact
