In a recent interview over in Lithuania or wherever the baby Balls are playing pro basketball these days, LaVar Ball made a shocking statement when he named Julius Randle, not Lonzo Ball, the Lakers’ best player.
“Julius Randle, in the beginning, they was ready to trade him,” Ball told Delfi TV. “I told them from the beginning, ‘He’s your best player on the team on the fact that he stronger and faster than everybody on the team.'”
He would add, “You gotta let him loose. Just because he make a few mistakes, don’t be like, ‘Hey, you gotta get out, you got an attitude. I’ma bring you off the bench.’ Now, he’s starting and doing wonders.”
It’s really hard to believe that Ball, who still claims he can beat Michael Jordan, would say any Laker is better than his son, Lonzo.
He’s not wrong, though. It’s just shocking to hear him say it.
