Lavar is a used car salesman. He sold the Lakers a lemon with Lonzo. The Lakers couldn't wait to get rid of overrated and overhyped Lonzo. Kick the tires next time. Moreover Lamelo has more talent than Lonzo,but he is extremely thin and needs to put on weight and muscle. He is not NBA ready. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

All SNARKS aside; because of both Melo's talent and current playing status, he may still be drafted in the TOP 5, which reminds me of the following quote: It is better to aim for the Moon and Strike a Star Then Aim for a Tree and Strike a Rock. Melo won't be too far from # 1 in the 2020 draft. Oh, and if he is drafted in the top 5, Tina and LaVar will be the only parents to have 2 sons drafted that high in the NBA draft.

After how Molly came at LaVar, I still have 0 respect for her & it appears Stephen A Smith had to represent him.

Just because a player is #1 pick doesn't mean anything. Throughout the History of the Game we have all seen #1 picks flop right out of the league. People put too much on #1 picks.

He said Lonzo was gona be drafted by the Lakers, facts. Called LeBron going to the Lakers a year before it happened, facts. Called out magic for being just a figure head, facts. Said Melo is gonna be the #1 pick, looking like facts when everyone has melo not being drafted in the first round. The biggest fact of all, Lavar Ball, NEVA LOST.

Honestly at first it looked like he promoted lonzo ball but actually he gave him the pressure of his life that he cant perform at his best because of the pressure injected in him. Not everybody has the mamba mentality, not everyone has the same goal at that age. If he gave lonzo time. He would have been greater and better. I honestly hated lonzo just because his dad talks a lot. More of business than actual passion

I give Lavar Ball thumbs up, because he understand the process of getting to the process level of basketball and it's preparations. Although Lavar Ball has taken unorthodox way of preparation and I must say that it works this way, because it allows a player more to time to work on game fundamentally and maturity. Ball understand this process is done around the world, but here because the slave plantations wants to profiting off the backs of majority Black Athletes, and Lavar Ball knows this, and I proud of Lavar as for myself a former college athlete understanding the process and controlling their business is a power move. I believe you will see a shift in more black athletes coming out of high school take this route. European tennis and basketball players used this method, but you here no one complaining .
