Some Teams Now Ranking De'Aaron Fox Ahead Of Lonzo Ball

LaVar, Lonzo's father, has become a polarizing figure over the last couple months for his big presence in the media.

Lonzo Ball, who has declared for the NBA Draft, and is considered a possible lottery pick was a first-team All-American selection for the Bruins this season. If they're at practice and he sees something, and Lonzo listens to him or whatever, he's good.

Apparently, there aren't as many big ballers out there as LaVar Ball thought there were. The Cavs guard did say he supports what LaVar has done on the business side of things, and how he's opened plenty of doors for his sons, but cautioned him on staying too involved in his son's life and making absurd comments in the press. LaVar Ball said that not even "His Airness" could have ever sold shoes for $495. If Lonzo flops, or even takes a long time to develop, his father's big talk will ring hollow and the precious brand will nearly certainly fail (it is worth noting, though, that Lonzo has two younger brothers, both of whom are considered excellent players at the high school level). But it's just not, 'OK, I'm talking to Kobe, so now I'm going to be good.' If Kobe sees something that 'Zo is doing, then go from there. These demands proved too much for a player who has yet to play a minute in the National Basketball Association. "I'm going to speak from the parent perspective first and then as a player", Irving said. He pointed out, though, that unlike his father, Lonzo Ball appears to be a "quiet, somewhat humble kid", one who "makes his teammates better" and "plays basketball the right way".

"Now, when he starts going off and saying, "I could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one" and starts going off and he compared Lonzo to Uber and taxi, come on", Irving added.
