LaVar Ball: Jordan couldn't sell $495 shoes 'because he ain't Lonzo'

  LaVar Ball: Jordan couldn't sell $495 shoes 'because he ain't Lonzo' So long as LaVar Ball is given a media platform, he will continue to say eyebrow-raising things. On Tuesday, the famous basketball dad was told by FOX Sports' Shannon Sharpe that not even Michael Jordan could command a $495 price tag for athletic footwear, the cost of his son Lonzo's ZO2s. "Because he ain't Lonzo Ball, that's why," Ball replied on Undisputed with Sharpe and Skip Bayless. "Did he have his own brand coming in? It's a new era, called the Ball era.

Kevin Durant is a Big Baller now.

While addressing the media following Thursday's practice, the Golden State Warriors superstar did his best LaVar Ball impression.

When asked a follow-up question by ESPN's Chris Haynes, KD replied with a laugh: "Stay in your lane."

The outspoken father of NBA draft prospect Lonzo Ball said those exact words to a reporter during a heated on-air exchange the previous day.

LaVar Ball says he doesn’t need Kobe Bryant’s advice (did he even offer it?)

  LaVar Ball says he doesn’t need Kobe Bryant’s advice (did he even offer it?) Yep, he's still talking.

LaVar Ball won. The Lakers landed the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NBA draft, seemingly ideally positioning them to pick Lonzo Ball . Ball : “ Stay in your lane . Anyway, on The Herd, like I was telling you.

LaVar Ball and Fox Sports' reporter Kristine Lehy went at it on May 17, with Lonzo Ball 's father telling her to ' stay in her lane .' “ Stay in your lane ,” he said, and it was on. LaVar didn’t even bother to look at Kristine during this argument, slamming her as a “hater.”

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: LaVar Ball ‘isn’t doing his sons any good’ .
Legendary Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar isn’t a big fan of what LaVar Ball is doing, particularly as it affects his sons. Appearing with Michael Smith and Jemele Hill on the His and Hers & SC6 podcast, Abdul-Jabbar was asked by Hill what he thought about the way Ball promotes his sons and the Big Baller Brand. “I don’t think LaVar Ball is doing his sons any good,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “He seems to be just somebody that’s out there trying to bring all the attention that he can to himself, and I don’t know what the purpose is for that. His sons are good athletes. Let them do their thing. I think he should step into the background.” Sorry Kareem. That’s not happening. Ball has produced a non-stop barrage of self-promotion the past half year or so, dating back even before he said Lonzo Ball is better than Stephen Curry right now. His brash nature has turned many off, and some reports indicate his involvement in his son’s affairs could affect his draft stock. He famously started the Big Baller Brand with a ridiculously overpriced shoe collection, which the Internet mercilessly tore to shreds. Most recently, Ball made some chauvinistic comments about how he’ll never market his Big Baller Brand to women. During the same interview, he told Fox Sports co-host Kristine Leahy to “stay in your lane,” while refusing to even look at her while he said it. Time will tell if Ball has a master plan that will make him look brilliant or if his methods will result in catastrophic failure for himself, his brand and his sons. The only thing we know for sure is that Ball leaves no room for middle ground. You either love him or you hate him.
