LaVar Ball, is not the father-of-the-year…..can you spell despicable?


I used the word “despicable” in my headline tonight, describing LaVar Bar, the father of UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, a top draft choice for the upcoming NBA draft.  I used that word as I figured that if I used other descriptive words, such as axxhole, SOB, Mf’r, and turdbird, many of the places where my blog is displayed might decide that what I posted might not be appropriate.  But in the balance of this article, the Ball father is all of those listed above and is pushing the limits of acceptability with regard to the NBA for his son.  To threaten a member of the media is never appropriate and when he did so today with Fox One’s Kristine Leahy, that is a line crossed.  You can read the threat at

LaVar Ball’s Wednesday appearance on Fox Sports One’s The Herdcrossed an uncomfortable line when he disrespected co-host Kristine Leahy live on the air. After telling Leahy to “stay in your lane” and refusing to even look at her, Ball took it a step further and threatened Leahy.

“I never disrespect women,” Ball said. “But I’ll tell you what, if you act like that, guess what? Something’s coming to you, and it’s okay.  (MSN)


If the Los Angeles Lakers, or for that matter, any other franchise in the Association makes the choice to draft Lonzo Ball, that team will need to put the clamps down on this clown as he could cause an immediate incident with regard to his son, the team that selects him, and the league.  As of today, the son has dodged his father’s embarrassing presentations , including his shoe business venture, and other negative media press that has been ongoing for the best part of a year.  Looking for trouble General Manager “Magic” Johnson, look no further than LaVar Ball.  You will get it. That is for sure sports fans.
