Enough Is Enough – LeBron James Goes Off On LaVar Ball


LaVar Ball was asked about LeBron James’ sons in an interview with 247 Sports and he questioned their ability.


“You got LeBron, it’s gonna be so hard for his kids, cause they gonna look at them like ‘you gotta be just like your dad.’ And after a while that pressure starts sitting on you like ‘why do I gotta be like him, why can’t I just be me?’ And then they’re gonna be like ‘aw, you’re soft, you’re not that good.’ Because the expectation is very, very high.

My sons are good, they’re great. But let’s say I really excelled in football and made millions of millions of dollars. Do I spent that time with them now? — No, I have to worry about the offseason and I just buy you a trainer and hope that you turn out okay. Whereas the fact that I wasn’t all that, allows me to take the time to make my boys all that.”


LeBron James apparently was furious when he heard Ball’s statement. He didn’t hold back and had a message for LaVar Ball. He told ESPN.


“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.”


LeBron will keep it dad to dad and later even had some nice words for LaVar’s oldest son Lonzo.


“I actually like his son, I like his game.”


James has all the right to defend his family, and solidified his statement saying:


“He can talk all about his brand, talk about his sons, talk about basketball, talk about me. But keep my family out of this.”
