The Lavar Ball media blitz is annoying and widely considered to be horrible parenting, but it’s something we can all laugh at and talk about in good fun. But if this new report about Lavar Ball is true, he is a real P.O.S. and the whole Ball marketing strategy is really heartbreaking. Here it is…
According to Andrew Stephens over at ArmChairAllAmericans.com, Tina Ball, the mother to the Ball boys, has been hospitalized since Feb. 21 after a severe stroke and life threatening skull surgery to relieve brain pressure. But she hasn’t seen her boys because Lavar will not let them visit her. According to the story, he says it will hurt the Ball brand and diminish sales of BBB merchandise. She has been alone in the hospital as he tours the country for media appearances.
It makes me sick just typing that, so read the whole report here.
Lonzo Ball was asked about his mother earlier today, to which he said, “I got no comment on that, man. It’s a family thing.”
If this is indeed true, it is absolutely sickening and we’re looking at the worst sports parent of all time.
