It appears that LaVar Ball is still attempting to be a thing in 2020. With the NBA season still suspended due to the ongoing pandemic, no basketball is being played right now. That hasn’t stopped LaVar from continuing to run his mouth.
Mr. Ball is out here predicting that his three sons will ultimately team up as members of the Los Angeles Lakers.
This is a real-life thing. And it’s about the most 2020 we can get.
Where to even start? Ball’s oldest son, Lonzo, was traded from the Lakers to the New Orleans Pelicans in the Anthony Davis blockbuster ahead of the 2019-20 season. LaVar decided to sound off on the Lakers at nearly ever turn, even when his son was on the team.
The middle son, LiAngelo, went undrafted and has not even suited up in a G-League game after signing with Oklahoma City.
Meanwhile, the most talented of the trio could very well be a top-three pick when the 2020 NBA Draft comes calling. LaMelo is seen as one of the top prospects in the annual event. Boasting the best record in the Western Conference, there’s no way he lands on the Lakers.
Let’s not even talk about the fact that these Lakers are more than done with LaVar and his antics.
One now has to wonder when LaVar will cease to be a thing. The hope is sooner rather than later.
