TMZ asked John Calipari about LaVar Ball

The hard-hitting journalists over at TMZ chased down John Calipari outside a charity event in New York City on Tuesday to ask him about the craziest dad in sports, LaVar Ball.

Calipari did not give the sound bite TMZ likely wanted, though, when TMZ asked if he’s ever had to “deal with” a parent like Ball. No, Cal instead said, “I was so far removed, I don’t even know what that means. I know he’s involved. But fathers being involved aren’t always bad for these kids.”

He also had nice things to say about Lonzo Ball’s game. See for yourself:

    Love how Slice is lurking in the back waiting for someone to get outta line so he can set em straight. Such a gangster!

      I thought the same thing. Slice just needs an earpiece.

    Cal in NYC looking like a combination of Rock Star signing autographs and straight up gangster with Slice in the background. LOL. Not sure we will ever have a more high profile coach at UK.

    He supports one and done guys even if they are not his. That’s his deal.

    LaVar Ball should market a brand of men’s soap.

    Perfect answer from Cal. He always manages to prove what a classy guy he is. Proud to have him as our Head Coach.

    LaVar Ball should take notes on how to have class from Coach Cal.

    Slice hovering around in the background after skimming $ 300 thousand out of us for doing nothing, except being Cals friend
