Default Re: Father seeks $1 billion dollar shoe deal for 3 sons

The father was ESPN SportsNation this afternoon. Why ESPN seems determined to make a celebrity out of this man is beyond me. He's just another parent seeking to capitalize on his kids' talent and make a name for himself.

Anyway, he said the only people who ask him about the way he's handling his kids is white people. Huh? What's that go to do with ANYTHING? When the white chick on the show asked if there was a chance his kids could get embarrassed by anything he does he said no, b/c they know he pays the bills.

Guy is a major piece of work.

Default Re: Father seeks $1 billion dollar shoe deal for 3 sons

The guy is out of control:

“Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one,’’ Ball told USA TODAY Sports. “I would just back him in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left. He cannot stop me one-on-one. He better make every shot ’cause he can’t go around me. He’s not fast enough. And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim.”

I actually give the guy props at this point.
He's basically all in and is going to back down.
You really can't get more ridiculous than what he's said

At this point, Lonzo is the only one who has the skillset to be in the league. The youngest is 1 dimensional and the middle brother isn't even on the NBA map at this point.

His kids are great...really great...and he deserves a lot of credit for that but him claiming he would kill MJ...while averaging 1 more basket a game than I did...and this idea that anyone...or three...playing basketball is even sort of worth a billion dollars is just laughable.

They are going to be rich and they are really...REALLY...good but dad has lost his mind...he is getting attention for him and his kids so its not all negative.

The jury's still out as far as their NBA fortunes. Lonzo has all the makings of a good NBA player, but you never know until a kid gets in the league. Too many can't-miss prospects have missed over the years. LiAngelo is a senior in high school, a consensus 3-star recruit and doesn't appear to be a one-and-done kind of prospect at this point. Could be an NBA player or just a really good college player. Time will tell. The youngest is still just a sophomore, so predicting any NBA future for him at this point is wildly speculative.

Yes, he's getting attention for him and his sons, but not all attention is good attention. Folks are already getting sick of him, and by extension his sons.

What slays me is that the media, on the one hand, reports on everything this guy says (why?) but, on the other hand, talks about he stays in the headlines. Well, he wouldn't be there if the media didn't put him there. He is delusional about his own grandeur (he could beat MJ one-on-one!?!), and to a large extent his son's skill level (stating his son his already better than NBA MVP Steph Curry) and has zero credibility.

..Yep, heard that also. ...Barkley could have really owned his ass but........Chuck also said he thinks a couple of the Ball kids are studs and if Pops got out of the way and stopped trying to steal their shine they have a shot at the NBA..

Lonzo, LaMelo, and LiAngelo. I already don't like them because of their names. It's like the father gave them catchy gimmicky names just to get attention in the basketball world. Add in the fact that the youngest has a porcupine on his head, shoots half court shots for fun, and doesn't play defense makes me dislike them even more.

I may be giving espn too much credit, but I think they are letting Mr. Ball be the village idiot for a week or two. Its getting a lot of talk and the dumb ass doesnt realize that he is being made a fool...

Some might criticize Lavar's approach but he's getting what he wants. Lots of people never knew who they were before ,but now they have people talking about the Ball family.

folks already knew who lonzo was.

anyway, getting talked about doesnt get him anything. the kids aint gonna get drafted because the dad is running his mouth.

and most of whats getting said isnt positive. no talk is better than negative talk.
