Ball's plan is ridiculous, of course, and even if you ignore the fact that the youngest Ball brothers might not be National Basketball Association material, LaVar didn't seem to understand that Lonzo will still be under contract with the Lakers when LaMelo Ball will be eligible to sign with an National Basketball Association team. He told Lithuanian journalist Donatas Urbonas that he wanted all three of his sons on the Lakers, but added they would go to any team that would take all three. Other than that, LiAngelo, who now plays for Lithuanian team Prienu Vytautas, is considered a minor talent and 16-year old LaMelo only has a few years of high school experience behind him.
On Monday, LaVar Ball insisted that "Lonzo plays best when he is with his brother", referring to LaMelo. "Why wouldn't- he is hell of a shooter".
Yahoo also noted that Lonzo hasn't played for the Lakers since January 13.
All of Lakerland is aflutter over the trade that brought former All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas to Los Angeles. "The Big Baller ain't gonna let you stay around". If you've been following Denise Garcia, Lonzo's girlfriend and reported baby mama, on Instagram, you've probably seen more than a few glimpses of Deuce at Zo's apartment in Marina del Rey. And they can match any deal he signs in restricted free agency three years from now.
Ball said a team doesn't have to draft the two younger brothers and that LiAngelo, who is considered the worst National Basketball Association prospect of the brothers, would play for $1 million over three years.
While the boisterous father has gained plenty of notoriety for his flurry of words, the oldest Ball brother is trying to make a lyrical name for himself.
Lonzo Ball has been taking some time away from the ball court after being sidelined with a strained MCL, but that doesn't mean that he's had to sideline his side gig as a rapper.
Ball is averaging 10.2 points, 7.1 assists and 7.1 rebounds per game this season.
