Should the NBL hire Lavar Ball?
Pairing Lavar with Homocide as the NBL's premiere talking heads would really lift the profile of the sport in Australia, catering to the average fan that can really understand basketball and basic English on their level.
Maybe include incentives like minority ownership in franchises, like Bogut's deal with the Kings.
As an added bonus: the Big Baller Brand could replace First Ever as the NBL's official apparel provider - finally giving fans an affordable and recognizable option.
I really can't see a downside to this, but I doubt Larry's ego would let him give up control of the mess he's created since pouring his time, resources and millions of dollars into the league over the past several years.
