Did The Lakers Pay LaVar Ball To Stay Quiet


Lonzo Ball’s father, LaVar, was one of the first to people to claim that LeBron James would sign with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was very confident about his statement, which eventually turned out to be true.

But now that James is a Laker, LaVar Ball has been unusually quite. Too quite? Well, if we believe Bill Simmons, who joined Mike Francesa on WFAN Sports Radio, LaVar could possibly get paid by the Lakers to not speak about LeBron and the team.


“I have a feeling he’s going to kind of disappear. He’ll be getting a nice paycheck to not really be heard from that much,”


It may be better for the sake of the team. In Match of 2017, LeBron and Lavar had a feud after Ball said that his sons were set up for better success than James’ because they will have far too much to live up to. James was furious when he heard Ball’s statement. He didn’t hold back and had a message for LaVar.


“Keep my kids’ name out of your mouth, keep my family out of your mouth. This is dad to dad. It’s a problem now.”
