Lonzo Ball On LaVar Ball’s Threat: ‘He Always Talks’


The other day, LaVar Ball more or less threatened the Lakers and said that Lonzo Ball will leave the Lakers if they don’t sign LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball.


“I want to let every NBA team know that Lonzo is not going to re-sign with the Lakers, but will go to any team that will take all three of my boys. That’s my plan.”


This is absolutely ridiculous and the plan could backfire big time for Ball. With his statements, he is risking the career of his oldest, and arguably most talented, son Lonzo. First of all, the other two brothers have yet to prove that they’re NBA talent (which honestly, I don’t think they are (especially LiAngelo)), secondly, Lonzo will still be under contract with the Lakers when both of the other brothers will be eligible to sign with an NBA team.

Lonzo, who could earliest leave the Lakers in 2022, now addressed his father’s comments:


“No reaction,” Lonzo said of his father’s threat. “I always just play. He always talks. It’s always been the same way.”
