    Shrug. Works for me. I have not watched UCLA enough to know if he's the second coming of Michael Jordan, so maybe I'm way off base. I just have a low tolerance for that sort of drama.

    I was too strong on the kids. Yeah, they're 16, 18 and 19, which means they have a LOT of growing up to do, but with that as a "father", it's not going to be easy to be a kid ever again. I do think the kid at UCLA is a very good player. He's not beating Steph Curry now. He'll probably never beat Steph Curry.
    I do apologize if I got everyone's dander up.

    Was just exaggerating to make a point. I probably would have been better served to call him a journeyman or something of that nature.

    You might change that plural to singular. Thanks to daddy's whacko pronouncements and some wildly misleading HS stats, I think people have been falsely presuming the younger brothers are similar caliber talents as Lonzo. They're not.

    The second brother is really a rather mediocre prospect with nothing close to the same sort of long term potential as Lonzo. He'll quite likely never sniff an NBA roster, much less be a lottery pick. Daddy has done that kid an awful disservice by publicly generating unrealistic expectations that he won't be physically capable of meeting.

    As for the third bro, it's still too early to tell. But he's got a mountain of remaining development that may or may not occur before anyone should presume him a lottery pick.

    You two really are humorless ass clowns. I make a Billy Madison reference to the annoying clan who died ridiculously after their car hit a banana peel and your only takeaway is that I want the Ball kids dead. Haha.

    I think my multiple ball jokes on this very thread at least proves the "humorless" part of the above to be false. I have no defense for the "ass," "clown" or "ass clown" assertion.

    "An Asian guy mimicking a black guy by saying he's an animal with no balls? OMG, that's raycess" -- what you would say if you weren't a consistently hypocritical putz.

    It was a plural "not all the fathers," so "picks" would also be plural.
