Ahaha oh I so hope this is true. It will break NBA twitter in the USA to find out a Ball is going to a country town in Australia.

Put it this way, the NBA has to put up with the Lavar circus, why would we be so very burdened if the sideshow came here for a season?

Yeah, can't imagine anything worse that having somebody well-known constantly talking and tweeting about your club and league.
Hawks might have to start charging for their tickets

Everyone needs to remember, it will only be for one year. Take all the exposure you can. Especially the Hawks

Yeah, the bullshit of a dad constantly creating headlines undermining coaches and other players of a team. Damn, the LA Lakers had to tell him to shut the he'll up with his distractions, imagine the little old Hawks. Great thinking mastermind. Only logical thing would be to shut up and let the kids play do the talking so he gets a chance to be drafted, but this is Lavar! Eldest clearly the most talented but Lakers wish they had taken someone else just because of the circus. Tatum etc have turned out to be better players but Lonzo has had ok 1st couple of years at the point, not spectacular but worth building on especially if Kidd can raise his game. And LeAngelo, what a train wreck that has been because of pops.
If he goes to Hawks, 1st sign of trouble get him on the plane home.

Hope the Hawks get him. They will be able to sell livestreams on PPV, make $$ on merch, and hopefully set the club up financially for a few years at least.

I reckon they will cop 6 months worth of hassle for that.

Leave Lavar alone. He's a passionate father who raised his 3 boys to be dedicated athletes with one goal to strive for. He trained groups of boys every morning from 6am for free for years to help get them off the streets and focused on being the best versions of themselves.

When his wife had her stroke, he taught her to walk and talk again with no professional help.
He’s 10 times the man you haters will ever be.

So what if he’s cocky and has a big mouth, at least he’s living his best life. Go back to your shift at Woolworths haters

So now you think the Hawks are in the same category as the Lakers?
Wow! Just when you think you've peeled off the lowest layer, there's another one underneath.

So basically you're saying that anybody not good enough for the NBA is likewise not good enough for the NBL. FMD

Let's get real, as long as he keeps his beer to himself, he'll be a welcome addition at the Hawks.

Dazz, for the millionth time, you are a dickhead. Yes, Lakers and Hawks are in the same category, professional sports team. No, they are not the same level. No team wants a distraction, either on or off the court. Do you dress yourself in the morning or do you still get mum to help you?

I don't see him going to the hawks, but you're kidding yourselves if you don't think Hawks would love to have him and be willing to put up with any potential sideshows.

Imo they'll be lucky to be in the league in another year or two. Lamelo might actually help make them relevant again, bring in some money, get them attention and get more than a couple of thousand fans to games.

No, I'm not kidding myself. Maybe the marketing manager and board would love it but coach and players would hate it if he comes in and is a dick. Suddenly everyone hates the good old Hawks, home crowds dwindle because they don't want to watch it. Coach gets told to play him, players pissed off. Obviously never been part of a team where there's been a talented yet toxic individual. If he's on good behavior great, but if dad comes out as history has shown then hawks are laughing stock. These kids have been used to getting own way, how did Lithuania experiment go? Starred in a damn reality show ffs.

Here's another prepubescent insult. You're a fucking idiot!
If you can't engage in a debate shut up. Why do you think talented players don't get gigs. Heard of Carmelo Anthony, HOF career but no ones touching him. Josh Smith gets paid 10s of millions to stay away from team. Hopefully mum picks up rattle you dropped, put together an argument or logical statement. Can see your point about encouraging publicity, just will affect team dynamics.
