Today on ESPN’s First Take, the ever-so elegant LaVar Ball joined the set to talk Lakers, Lonzo, and his new reality TV show.
Caught in the shuffle of the conversation was a jab from Stephen A. Smith toward Lonzo about his matchups last year in college with De’Aaron Fox.

This was after LaVar said his son was better than Stephen Curry already, with Smith responding by asking what would happen when the two-time league MVP switches onto Lonzo one-on-one.
LaVar: “Lonzo don’t get in one-on-one battles.”
Smith: “Well we know that. We know that from De’Aaron Fox. We know he doesn’t want to get into any one-on-one battles.”
Fox: 39 points on 13-of-20 shooting, three rebounds, four assists, two steals
Ball: 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting, eight assists, four turnovers, and a loss.
Fox told Sports Illustrated he put on a show in the Sweet 16 just to â€œshut LaVar Ball up,â€Â but it looks like he’s still a bit frazzled about the outcome.
