    Yeah, there are people on this board who have said from the start that the dad is harmless, he is entertaining, yada yada yada.
    Dad went on 2 Phoenix radio shows and a cable sports shouting show this week to rip the lakers, the coach, LeBron and I am sure I am missing some. He argued that his son is a better player than LeBron right now. Full on back and forth arguing.

    He started the campaign to have all three sons on the Suns.

    LaVar isn't a good enough player for a front office to have to deal with all that crap. As someone here pointed out about Toronto, no serious basketball organization is going to put up with that crap.

    If Lonzo is better than LeBron, than 50% of the NBA is better thanLeBron

    The new shoe ZO2.19 Madagascar was unveiled in October 2018. But unavailable for shipment until February 1, 2019. PimpDaddy couldnt handle that. Now it’s May 1, 2019 for delivery. NoRefunds. Scam.

    And to think an NFL QB can get blackballed for far less.

    Serious question: what "harm" has been done by any of it?

    You think Magic Johnson gives a single shit about what LaVar Ball says about anything? You think LeBron does?

    You think any NBA team makes a personnel decision based on "what if the player's daddy says something mean?"

    Seriously, some of you have completely lost your minds over this guy. He's a loudmouth whose words mean absolutely nothing and there are people here wishing death on him.

    Yeah, they are. They should stick it squarely up his ass, stand first, then cord, then the mic.

    Yes. But the tools that give him a microphone give millions of dollars and 100’s of hour’s of air time to similar stooges. In dramatic lore they are known as Stupidity , Ignorance, Hubris and Envy. These are only aliases. Their real names are Cowherd, Bayless, Vitale and Smith

    I absolutely think that someone from the Lakers organization had told him to STFU.

    He hadn't said a word all season and the week his son is in trade talks, dad revs up his garbage mouth.

    The circus is a distraction. Teams will put up with it for good players. Not Lonzo Ball.

    A decent organization is not going to think twice about LaVar. They're just not. It's not a distraction. It's a non-entity. It's something for people on talk radio and message boards to pretend they're very, very concerned about.

    LaVar hasn't said shit since Lonzo joined the Lakers... until they tried to trade him to New Orleans. Then he started talking to try to keep his son away from the Pelican, which is pretty understandable and did not make one iota of difference. The trade deadline is over so he'll shut up until the off-season when the trade talk starts again.

    Do you think LeVar ever shows up in the Lakers’ locker room? That ought to be fun to watch

    So he’s basically Archie Manning, with less talent. Same number of Super Bowl rings, though.

    Pretty much. But no one wishes death on Archie Manning or pretended Peyton and Eli would be out of the league in a year because of their daddy.
